    Here's an experiment in science reporting on the Internet... I invite those of 
    you who are interested to post (or attempt to post) a comment on this 
    article:
    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/science/article5361670.ece
    
    ...regarding its claim that navigation by sextant would become "almost 
    impossible" if leap seconds were dropped from the calendar. Totally false, of 
    course. But my attempts to say so have been censored, or so it seems. I left 
    three comments saying this in various ways over the course of a week, all as 
    generous as I could be, but they have been deleted. I suspect that 
    timesonline.co.uk simply refuses to accept direct contradictions of its 
    reporting. But maybe it's just an accident of timing... Perhaps if some of 
    you post equivalent comments, yours will be posted.
