This is worth repeating.

I've trimmed some of the fat so Bosch's respnse to "John Burgin" is not
obscured.  It appears that not only is "John Burgin" (real name??)
ignorant of some basic terms, but (if we can believe him) so are his
alleged medical colleagues and his molecular biologist (apologies to
them if he misrepresents them).  Moreover, they do not know how to
write a good Medline search strategy.  Bosch wrote one and found ample
documentation of widespread use of a term "John Burgin" had ridiculed
as unheard of...
