Personally I see your proposal as doing the same harm most of the other
opposition does. That doesn't mean it is a personal attack against you, or
that I at least believe it is even your intent.

I cannot comment on Owen's reasons, as they are his own, and not available
to me, but I believe you may be reading into this a bit much, and projecting
his (and others including my own) criticism of your policy as personal
criticism against you, and responding as such. I have not seen anything so
far that stands out to me as personal attacks against you from the responses
so far, except in retaliation, and even then, it was fairly muted. I could
be mistaken of course.

Note, I say attacks against you, and not your proposal, as those have gotten
fairly intense, as the conversation has gone by.
