RE: origin of bats/
firstly, I'd like to apologize: I wasn't aware I was violating netiquete. I
simply saw Mr Peters offering me the information about his theory offline,
despite the fact that I wasn't the only one who asked about it.
(ie, his "If you're interested>>> in the topic, kindly contact me off line and
I'll share what I have."...I didn't so much contact him offlist, as hit Reply
All, as I always do)

I kept saying "publish. we'll wait."

absolutely. that's what makes his "if you were really interested, you'd ask
for more information" so frustrating.
