I can see how this posting might have been borderline but it doesn't
seem that out of line to me because he mostly talked about what
Dr. Chihara could do for free with the demo and he did identify
his commercial connection by his email (I guess he could have
added his status as well). Speaking as someone with absolutely
no connection with Gene Codes (I am at Univ. of Mich. but have
only met Howard once), I think that Sequencher is an amazing 
piece of software. I am interested in what I can do with the
demo as well, because I don't have a prayer of affording the
real version anytime soon.
