See the following snip, which was posted 11-16-06; apparently, Mr. Z does not 
even know what he says from one day to the next:

"Basically, I'm thinking we need unbiased opinion. Linguists are exposed to 
phonetic notation that could affect judgment."

Linguists are not prejudiced, they are just biased by their having studied 
phonetics. Right.

And now I am going to do more than TRY to ignore his nonsensical postings.
