Er... if I may:  Larry has always been an absolutely straight-up fellow.  
You can agree or disagree with particular conclusions and analyses of
his, but I've never known him to speak other than from a good-faith
assessment.  (Also, to my knowledge, Larry isn't a C-R proponent nor an
admin who runs them.  He was just criticising what he considered
doubtful statistics.)

The explosion of spam has everyone a bit trigger-happy and easily
annoyed, I think.  I do understand why, but would appreciate people
keeping their cool (at least, here among friends).
