Many readers may be interested in how the problem
`to Bayes or not to Bayes' is viewed by statisticians.
In order to thoroughly analyse the situation, one should make a
detailed study not only of the probability theory, but also of
the history and sociology of statistical science.
The most I can do here is to give
personal impressions, certainly biased, and some references.
I invite the reader to visit
the statistics department in
his University, browse their journals and books,
and talk to people (and to judge the different theses
by the logical strength of their arguments, not
weighing them just by numbers...).
