Re: Thanks, and a Brief Survey

Hi Philip,

Please refrain from calling people crazy or disruptive. Please keep the discussion on the actions not people's characters.

By labelling people with negative terms, these debates turn into arguments instead of productive discussions.

No because the survey's importance for me is to illustrate to the
disruptive people that they are crazy.

The opposition contains intelligent people too. I'm not referring to
them. You are trying to skew my words because it would suit you if I
would have said that. But I didn't.

I think it's clear for everybody who I mean with "disruptive people".

Yes that's easy.


I disagree with him so I'm going to reply disrespectfully by trying to
skew his words and cut away the most important part of his E-mail ...

And then I will claim that HE was disrespectful and that I don't want to
talk with him anymore, that way framing the debate with misinformation.


Sorry John, but it's not because you use a cleaner writing style than I
do, that you aren't being disrespectful. You did cut context-relevant
sentences and you are misrepresenting what I said. You didn't even had
the respect to write a [CUT], which is netiquette.
