BBC News On-line is asking the following:-

"Are you Austrian, and if so how do you think this latest abuse scandal will 
affect your country's citizens and will it affect Austria's reputation 
internationally? How will the country cope with this in the long term? Send us 
your comments using the form below:"

Btw, in Austria Popper is known as Charles Popper. This may be explained by 
their rampant anti-semitism or by it being de rigeur that Popper is disowned by 
all national communities. They tried to invite him back as a Professor in the 
years before his death (I know, strictly all the years he lived were years 
before his death, but don't start) but at a point when he was minded to accept 
he was informed that all his intended publications would have to be submitted 
for state-approval. Had he accepted, perhaps they would have invited him to see 
their cellar.

Of course they are clever. They have managed to convince the world that Mozart 
was Austrian and Hitler was German.
