Debbie Viesse published a refutation to the Rubel/Arora article on eating Amanita muscaria. It is now in print and online. You can find it HERE and it is titled "Further Reflections on Amanita muscaria as an Edible Species", printed in "Mushroom, the Journal of Wild Mushrooming," Issue 110, Fall 2011-Winter 2012. Copies are available through Leon Shernoff, Publisher. I am definitely going to read it tonight!!!!
Mod has a website on Mediterranean bay leaves where he develops and shares ideas. You can visit it HERE! Nevertheless, let me warn you that it is in a foreign language, I suppose Turkish, so the content just passed flying without me understanding it a slight bit.
