I think your initial point was a reasonable one. However, I don't
think there's really any need to pick a fight here. Allow some time
for people to respond to your points. And perhaps "doomed" was a bit
overly dramatic, no?
Another part of raising the bar is making this list a bit more user
Thanks Jon for making that point. This list has been far too
unfriendly. We haven't needed to give anybody a timeout yet which
means we're bein slightly more civil however we still are being full
of the dramatics and over reactions. Peter does have good input bu it
could have been presented in a more constructive way. I thank those
that replied to the input and avoided being sucked into the dramatics.
