Gosh, Robin, classification is verboten, biogeography is verboten, and 
now nomenclature is verboten. I'm curious as to what's left of taxonomy. 
I'm also curious and somewhat offended that my attempts to understand 
why zoologists (evidently) see synonymy so differently from botanists is 
seen as rhetoric. If I've somehow offended you personally, I apologize, 
but if looking to be better informed is no longer an acceptable use of 
the list, maybe it's time for me to move on.
