Dear GNU-Darwin Action Group:

More information on possible issues with oil well infrastructure and erosion. There does appear to be some concern regarding rupture of the well resulting in an "uncontrolled discharge". It also appears that information regarding the condition of the well infrastructure is being withheld from many people with the scientific background to understand the situation and assist. Although it is being denied, I suspect strongly that oil has already eroded through the ocean floor, bypassing the damaged infrastructure.

Contrarily, we should also be concerned that this information is being used to propagandize against plugging the well, so that the oil can be recovered in spite of the ongoing spill. I must confess that I do not yet have the information to distiguish between these two opposing possibilities. Further discussion is invited as always.
