In his interview in the Scotsman Richard Dawkins plays a card that is becoming increasingly common: citing offensive emails/website comments etc as evidence that one's openents are unbalanced and really not very nice at all.  But provoking offensive and extreme responses on a website is not difficult, whatever your view point, as so many people seem to have no concept of manners and restraint once they sit at a key board.  Surely a scientist can understand that?
