Yup, 'twas I. I don't know about the "embattled", though; I just
find Hubert's pretentious, windy outpourings amusing. I particularly
enjoyed his call to the lurkers (knowing that I'm a postdoc who hasn't
published much yet) to ask for my publication list. This is funny
because it's really Thomas Jukes with whom he's disagreeing, and I'm
quite sure Jukes's CV would stack up rather favorably with Hubert's!
Opinions are mine alone; I never met a university with opinions!
