RE: Erratum for Ajancingenia (oviraptorid) paper

So ends that saga.  Unsatisfactorily, as my earlier discussion at 
 detailed, but what can you do?  And thanks for the gender consideration Ben, 
but in the context of myself as a scientist, I don't mind which pronouns are 
used.  Certainly it's unimportant compared to the erratum not mentioning Easter 
didn't consult with Barsbold before renaming his genus, but I had no part in 
writing it.  That being said, thanks to everyone for their support over this
