I was wrong about the ethics paper being dry.

Again this morning proving that memory is not a good tool for scholarship, I was wrong about this ethics paper from the AoIR being dry or hard to read. There must have been either, a more reactionay emotional reason I did not read this paper, or perhaps, when I first tried to read it, I was tired, or did not have enough interest, or time. I read some of it this morning and it is interesting and full of material I can understand. It is not computer ethics that this paper addresses but researcher ethics. This is a different kettle of fish but actually only a different area of applied ethics. In fact, the paper has a very similar development of ethical theories to a development of these theories that are used to introduce ethics to the field of computer ethics. So in that I have read these ethical theories before, and been tested on these theories, I can understand this paper.
