Perhaps one of the biggest, although most exciting, 'problems' with
this list is that it does bring together a huge number of people with
different interests. This is compounded by the ease with which people
(including myself) read particular tones into the written word. I
was certainly not aiming for confrontation--what would be the point
really? I don't know who any of you are, nor do you know me.
Confrontation's only 'fun' if there's some personal stake.
