From Peter Blake :

Re: Dinosaurs may have roamed a fiery landscape (March 30): Just writing to express a personal pet peeve. I don't think it is correct to refer to dinosaurs as reptiles, as you did in your recent article. It is at best unclear if any or all dinosaurs were reptiles. What is more nearly correct, in my opinion, is that the evidence increasingly supports the view that dinosaurs were warm-blooded. Couldn't you use the term dinosaurians instead of reptiles when referring to this group of creatures?

Aside from that I'm extraordinarily grateful for your hard work and expertise in putting out the premier online science news source. Thank You.
