I would like to complement Christopher for bringing to the forum 
somehting that he said in a very eloquent manner.  I saved the letter 
that he responded to, to answer when I calmed down.  Now I can delete it 
and not hurt the feelings of the principals.   

	I was shocked too, to see so much misunderstanding and just plain 
wrong advice be given out over this forum.  As someone who teaches 
medical students about parasitic diseases, even I feel uncomfortable when 
it comes to talking about what drugs to use in a given circumstance.  
I would like to suggest that while it is easy to log on and type 
effortlessly to this or anyother group, if you are going to answer 
scientific questions, please check your textbooks (notes from old 
professors may not be up to date either), and if you want to come off as 
truely scholarly, reference your post.  The letter that Chritopher was 
responding to not only recommended inappropriate drugs, but stated that 
giardia and amoeba were essentially the same kinds of organisms.  

	On a happier note, I was glad to see that MissAmie did get some 
good answers to her questions and in a timely fashion.  That is what 
makes the net worthwhile.
