"Some" is undoubtedly a weasel phrase; I've therefore edited it out. Nevertheless, I believe reversion of the deletion is justified as there are indeed "some" who have not only made the stated claim, but are also in the process of applying GAs, notably Dr Gordon Rugg of University of Keele (whose work on potential decryptions of the Voynich MS was featured in Sci Am last year).

As the author of one of the first papers in the refereed cryptologic literature showing how to use GAs for decryption, I'd also count myself among that weasely "some". I'd also argue that the inclusion of the statement could also help stimulate further progress using this particular approach. Robma 14:09, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
