On an unrelated note, here's a banner I made for wikipedia. Laugh if
you must, just don't tell me about it. ;-) I'm not sure if the
concept comes across; I'm not a graphic artist.

Also, Dr. David Touretzky at carnegie-mellon is knowledgeable about
both DeCSS and Adobe encryption and various other first amendment
issues ignored by the DMCA (and, it seems, the Church of Scientology);
his arguments seem generally lucid and measured; you can visit his
page at http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/ if you care to.

Of course not -- both you and I have deleted or moved to the meta much of
this type of hopelessly POV or idiosyncratic material (and have edited the
hell out of less POV or idiosyncratic material).
The question here is if one particular kook is reformable or is irrevocably
stuck in her own POV world and therefore will be a continued drain on user
resources. I still haven't seen any evidence other than her joining the list
that she can reform. But joining the list is a major first step.

Chemical structure diagrams seems like something there ought to be a
specialized free program to generate. If we standardized on such a
program, the article source should contain whatever input file to
that program was used and we can use its output (in PNG, or EPS
rendered in PNG) in the articles themselves. I don't think HTML is
adequate for the task. We'll need something similar for mathematical
equations as well at some point (though complex HTML with special
characters is a possible alternative there).
