Subject: [Histonet] My opinion to this issue

I am not a Histonet by profession but I follow your comments and 
advice in the many issues you post. This site is extremely important 
and should not be tarnished by the actions of a vendor. 

The issue has no basis for retribution. 

1.- Joe's comments were posted in an open space for ALL to see and 
comment. His comments were not irrational nor based on prejudice. 

2.- Joe's opinion is protected and cannot be punished by ANY academic 
system as it was OPEN to all to see and comment. Internal or no 
internal regulation, retribution is against the law regardless of the 

3.- Vendors are welcomed to this site as long as they base their 
opinions and comments on a scientific basis, no propaganda etc, no 
personal attacks. 

4.- A formal letter or e-mail from the members of this site should be 
sent to Ventana and advice them that such actions do have 
repercussions and shall not be tolerated in the future. Our academic 
freedom is fundamental to our work, a principle that cannot and shall 
not be hinder on the basis of prejudice or disagreement with a vendor 
or academic administration for that matter. I do not think Ventana 
would like to see an open letter to the editor of an important journal 
mentioning this issue for all of us to see and ponder.
