A voice of reason

Misleading title, that. More like wisdom, I'd say.

No matter how many taunts were hurled on the WMAP team, I am glad that they kept at their job silently, and the result is that the three-year data, that was released at noon EST today, looks even more reasonable than their first-year data, at least at first sight. They successfully avoided astro-ph from being flooded by speculative string theorists by succumbing to demands of timely data release.

I like their diligence, and their imperviousness to taunts. I will allow the real experts to make further comments.
