Having seen the arguements i thing that the word emasculate is most appropriate
we have seen theexfects of a great deal of testosterone in some peoples 
postings :-) A great deal of verbal brawn with very little scientific brain.

An interesting insight into Mr Lenhart's psychology. This perhaps explains
the reason why he refuses to accept that when habitats are changed the range 
of species that can survive in them changes as well.
I found his statements on old-growth forests most peculiar but seeing
that he works in an industry that damages desert ecosystems explained
a great deal. I think he is loosing the arguement which is why he is getting
so natsy with his opponents.
