even if I personally don't agree with your views on the world (i don't believe in / follow the idea of astrology) , 
I think David's "We aren't pissed at you because you're astrologers; we're pissed at you because you're stupid." 
remark quite nicely sums up the reaction I got from a lot of people I've talked to about this :) 

very nice write up, I must remember to not try to sip on a drink while reading things from you :)

Thank you, David, for sharing both of these. 

I am a Vedic astrologer on this list, and I hugely respect the work of the Olson database community. Please know Astrolabe does NOT speak for all astrologers. While the Supreme Court in India has ruled that Vedic astrology is a science, I do realize not all on this list share that view, and I'm not looking to go "out of scope" with a discussion on that topic. However, if this case needs any testimonies from astrologers speaking up refuting Astrolabe, I'm happy to write something up. ADO has a great reputation for integrity, and this list has been very thoughtful for years. I do not see this case as "astrologers" vs. Olson database community.

Astrolabe, Inc., sent out a press release overnight: 


And I responded, if anyone’s interested: 


I hope this isn’t out of scope for the list. I figured people might be interested in the latest developments in the case.
