The reason I did not raise it on taxacom was that I was too busy
slashing my wrists...


Would it have hurt them to show a bit of vision and leadership, a
sense of values and some human compassion?

A pox and an LSID on all their houses!  They/we do not deserve this planet...

We as taxonomists always thought that our knowledge is at the base of conservation, and thus ought have a great interest in its development.
