	If you had actually read some of the responses without having
	made up your mind beforehand (which, as I recall from when I
	was a journalism student, is a sure sign that your pretenses
	of objectivity are lost), you might notice that both "winners"
	and "losers" are pointing out the SAME flaws in the study.

	Please go re-read the archives with a more open mind.
