Totally agree with you, Bala.

I've been cc-d on a couple of these emails and unfortunately, people who
are famous in their fields, do seem to feel they are above examination. The
attitude that sometimes comes across is this: "How dare anyone write
negatively about me!" (Regardless of the facts of the situ).

So if we whitewash negative information in these situations, knowledge and
neutrality are the first casualties.
