Thanks for your input, but what do you want me to do now ? Just one 
newspaper article is pretty thin ice to do anything. Before you start a 
cruisade on the internet, wouldn't it be better if an investigating
commitee of the school involved reached a conclusion ? After all, nobody
is guilty until some sort of courtcase.

Sorry, but how much I deplore misconduct in science, I think your
approach will not help to solve this issue.
