Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

because there's a time limit for editing and deleting a post, I think...perhaps 1 to 2 days post-posting (or we can try to find out here with this post)...:) and probably only the great panda, the admin and the mods can do something to it afterwards....

Hmn... too bad. My work doesn't involve using any antibody.. I'm a total immunology handicapped/ignorant.
