Megan, Julia and others,

I know I have said this before, but it seems worth repeating.  I have met Mr. 
Chan before on other (non-science) newsgroups.  His reply here is typical of his

will go away and play somewhere else.  He has certainly shown no signs of being

I am a bit annoyed by the ignorance and blatant sexism demonstrated by Mr. 
W.Y. Chan, if he is right, then no woman should be permitted to do science 
in any field, because they have no determination, are not logical thinkers, 
and are not versatile in the ability to perform scientific research.  Hmmm. 
Maybe they shouldnt be permitted to vote either?  Or own land?  Just a 
sarcastic thought.
