A note for anyone wishing to post a comment at the NYP link. The site truncates everything after the use of an ampersand. If you post "I believe that F and F is a bad program" you are fine. If you post "I believe that F&F is a bad program" is will post as "I believe that F".
I don't know why that is the way the site works.
