So who is guilty of suppressing freedom of speech at New Scientist...?

Have just come across this posting on the blog Afarensis:
which describes an incident of self-censorship at New Scientist.

And here is what New Scientist now has in its place:
"New Scientist has received a legal complaint about the contents of this story. At the advice of our lawyer it has temporarily been removed while we investigate. Apologies for any inconvenience."

So who is to blame for this legalistic nonsense? Well, one doesn't have to be a rocket scientist to spot the two most likely culprits--the two individuals named in the article! As Al Murray would say: Shame on you!
