    This is unrelated to your post, but are you commenting as “Andrew” at on “More lying creationists, now with Biblical justification”?

    NewEnglandBob thinks you are:

    “Posted July 23, 2009 at 7:41 pm
    Move along people. Nothing to see here from “Andrew[,]” AKA Santi[,] except bad premises, analogies that have nothing to do with anything, wild conclusions and twisted logic from him along with malicious intent.

    He is just a troll.”

    Hi Veronica:

    I haven’t been over to Coyne’s blog for at least a week. Anytime I say anything on a thread anywhere I always stay above board (no pseudonyms). I do this on principle. I think that in a democracy one needn’t hide, and if people can’t handle who you are, tough.

    I burned out on the nastiness over at Coyne’s blog and the harrassment from people like NE Bob, and just decided to give it a rest. I don’t even know what the contest winner name was for “accomodationists.”

    I’m sure I’ll go back there and enter the fray when I’m in the mood, but I’m not “Andrew.” If you see me on any threads anywhere, it will always be as me. My hope, however, is that “Andrew” (whoever that is) is holding his own intellectually. If I go over there and see he is making inane comments I’ll definitely be insulted if the assumption is that it was me! : )
