You know if the Commission was really interested in communicating with
the community, etc., then they would make critical articles, like this
one by Joan Thorne, available to the public as pdf documents.

This would in no way affect their subscription income from the
Bulletin, but would go a long way to getting more community

Years ago I got into trouble with Tubbs and Otto Kraus as I had the
draft version of the Code posted to the then nomenclatural list server
at Berkeley.

Perhap the commissioners can again bring this subject up to the powers
to be. But the bottomline remains, not many libraries and no individuals
(except commissioners) have access to the Bulletin ICZN. So few will
read this article.
