I promised John a public apology if I had misconstrued his actions. He
assures me that I did, that he in fact had the permission of the
unidentified correspondent to post the passage to Taxacom. I apologize for
my accusation, and for impugning John's character in this manner.

I have decided that it is a waste of my time and John's to continue our
interchange about the meaning of cladistics, so I will no longer respond to
his posts on the issue.
