Politics and policymaking is all about being unfair.
We must make choices and those choices always leave
somebody less than pleased. Anybody who has been involved
in politics (policymaking) understands this and has
likely felt the sting of being on the losing side.

Of course he is. And I am entitled to dissect his 
opinion and interpret it, just as others are entitled
to dissect and interpret my opinions. People have
certainly done so in the past.

I never said that he should be kicked off the list.
Better to have opinions aired in public and discussed
in public rather than in the backrooms.

If you don't want name-calling flame-wars then
why are you trying to escalate this dispute?
What about the CONTENT of Geoff's message or
the CONTENT of my message? What do you think of
