Then there is time for a surprise for you.
We consulted with him, of course, as we did with other major publishers.

Well, I mean more so and especially with regard to electronic publishing (which didn't exist in the Code a decade ago).

I don't think it is a "conspiracy theory" to think that the electronic amendement was "heavily influenced" by the one commissioner who is also a major commercial publisher. I'd be surprised if it wasn't.

 "Rather, I strongly
 suspect that we will have to learn to live with zoological
 nomenclature that is somewhat less than well-defined, i.e.
 somewhat vague and fuzzy around the edges."

 Wow, Stephen, you haven't
 learned that yet - in all these decades?

 And stop with your Magnolia Press conspiracy
 theory. This is just not true.
