    Show specific modern examples of the assertion you are making.

    Also, this is not a IM conversation, but a discussion forum, use the English language please and not txt spk.

    "Nut case time" often coincides with school holidays I've noticed, bored teenagers + internet access = nutter on forums.

    Two news paper articles does not make your case that all of science is making crap invalid claims for the description of new subspecies.

    You have not supported your assertion of bad science, you have not supported your motives of the authors of said subspecies.

    Your first article talks about a legal case against someone who did not know taxonomy but tried to use it to avoid fines.

    The second is by a newspaper reporter that makes no effort to actually address the biology but rather takes the approach that "humans take priority period and biologists are just asses that want to control my land"

    And subspecies is a valid criteria often used to define a group of organisms that might be a separate species by one criteria but fail by other criteria.... for example geographically distinct populations which remain biologically partially compatible for reproduction.

    In regard to the the thread title (LOL@subspecies), I have always considered it wise to refrain from laughing out loud at something I am unfamiliar with. Ignoring this 'rule' can lead you being the object of the laughter.

    Shall we take a hack at "quasispecies" next? (note: I love the concept of the viral quasispecies, I'm just huckin' a 2x4 on the bonfire here...it looked like it might go out)
