Well, I was obviously being too hopeful for you to admit your mistakes in the first instance and hence your baseless claims that my original description/s were/are inadequate, nomen nudems, unethical (?), or otherwise tainted is totally understandable in that you must somehow justify your fundamentally unjustifiable comments of the past.
However, I suppose I should in part be thankful for the fact that you are now into stage 2, which is not violent opposition (stage one), but rather a grudging aceptance of reality and truth.
No doubt in ten years from now, you'll be merely deriding me as having done nothing more than describing the obvious in my various descriptions and taxonomic acts.
Anyway, I just hope that one day you get over the fact that David Williams led you up the garden path on his underfed King Brown snakes and that one day, you'll concede to backing a losing horse.
In the meantime try to stick to the following:
"Taxonomy is a matter of evidence", not what you have been doing up until now "Taxonomy is a case he who makes most noise wins the argument"
IN ANY EVENT, I BEAR NO MALICE AGAINST YOU AND ARE WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST
