The paragraph includes some historical elements that I have not studied
so I cannot judge in any informative way about its relationship to the
phylocode, but I agree with the main point that it is illogical to
suggest that all cladists support the Phylocode. That was the explicit
or implicit implication of repeated statements by Ken, and that is what
I objected to.
