"Whom??  Needn't be grammatically correct in these times of stress.  Why not rephrase your question to correspond with your text, and keep time with such diverse types as Naipaul and Motorhead:  Tell me who to kill.    "

Lee, I notice you are looking to debate Chagnon etc. The best option is to open a 'forum' thread on that topic. You just click on + Add discussion (bottom left of that box).

cheers, Huon
