New Scientist has received a complaint about the contents of this story. It has temporarily been removed while we investigate. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Is it really New Scientist’s policy to remove an article after recieving a complaint, and before investigating? This is the same magazine that published an issue with a cover proclaiming “Darwin Was Wrong”, for which they recieved a number of complaints, to put it mildly. New Scientist has a reputation for publishing provocative stories, so I’m bewildered that they would pull one over a complaint.
