[phenixbb] Highly anisotropic data

Hi Kostya,

I have seen worse data than that, which are ususally treated quite well 
within phenix using standard parameters. With a resolution of about 2.7 
Ang. I wouldn't expect to see waters and also just well ordered side 
chains, whereas more flexible ones just give some "bumps"  pointing away 
from the main chain density. Though without a picture or something else 
it is difficult to say if your maps are really unusually bad.
