It was a *botanist*, for crying out loud. Give me a f***ing break! As far
as I can tell, you and Linnaeus are the only people in the history of
systematics to have intimate familiarity with every organism, and I find it
offensive that you use this fact to lord it over all the rest of us who can
only keep track of 1500 or so taxa at a time.

I promise to shut up (at least in response to you) on this matter, and go
back to my day job of teaching subversive cladist ideas to countless
impressionable college students, who are so ignorant that it actually seems
to make sense to them.
