Skepticism should be about celebrating scientific skepticism and critical thinking, not about pushing particular technologies or interests which alienate potential supporters.
We think that regardless of Bob Novella's controversial beliefs in so-called "nano" technology, his voice is anathema to the free exchange of ideas. I mean really, how do you even tell the difference between him and Jay? He is rambling, nerdy and sounds too much like Jay. None of these traits promote scientific skepticism, but instead hinder it. This petition is totally rational and not based on a stupid personal vendetta.
