I've been trying to avoid posting replies to Ed Conrad's nonsense in any of
the sci. newsgroups, but his latest attempt to defame Andrew MacRae's
character seems to have actually gotten at least one person to actually
suspect Conrad might be right. Specifically, this post:

Here is an excerpt pulled off DejaNews from a post MacRae made in June of
1996, clearly stating his position. I think it also clearly shows that
he was honest and upfront right from the beginning, while Ed Conrad is
either a clueless ignoramus or a lying scumbag (you may make your choice
depending on how charitable you feel towards Mr. Conrad...and I will admit
that I personally do not feel very charitable).

I am not "of the University of Calgary". I do not represent the
University of Calgary in any capacity. My opinions are not theirs, and
vice-versa. Please do not represent me that way. My affiliation is only
as a student.
