[Annelida] Eunice norvegica in an odd place

Geoff, The problem is that it is a use of the scientific name and once
in,  it is just about impossible to get wiped out.  I did not take the
time to look up the original message, so I do not know whether the cited
worm is even an annelid, but it does not matter:  Once in, very rarely
out. For that reason, I believe to make a bit of song and dance about it
is worthwhile, because the messages also in some sense gets to be part
of the message and may be cited as awful warnings.

Hi Folks,

Interesting. There was almost no feedback on that posting. What looks
an incomprehensible load of nonsense is published, and the reaction is -
zilch, blah, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Should we leave awful work uncommented upon?  Just ignore it? I don't
think so. Should I be more kind and non-judgmental?  Very likely, but it
is disappointing to see something like this slip through to muddy the
waters of the permanent record.

Just my opinion.  Let me know yours.
