### You are right, Jack (strange we agree, isn't it?). The problem
with wta-talk is that it was supposed to *apolitically* moderated, and
it wasn't. Failing to expel an extreme communist (because Mr Medvedev
is not even a mainstream communist anymore) after having silenced the
opposite end of the political spectrum amounts to support for one of
the positions.

Good to see we have the occasional overlapping position!
I can see how those postings amount to major embarrassment - but I still 
think that trying for a complete separation of politics from the issues the 
WTA discusses is something of a lost cause.

Science/technology has ramifications for politics/sociology and 
vice -versa...
