You and I have very different ideas of what constitutes an attack. Yes, it's personal; no, it doesn't come close to being an attack.
The ideas that you and J are promulgating regarding who owns a fully living group with many participants focuses very hugely on yourselves as owners at the expense of the community that's a huge part of the entire idea of "group." I don't know how one can accurately characterize that other than as selfish or self-centered at the mildest. That doesn't mean that either one of you is horrible or anything else that I would consider an attack.
One can savage ideas without savaging the holders of those ideas as individuals. This is at the very heart and soul of spirited debate. I have not attacked either one of you.

I worry a lot. . . I worry that no matter how cynical you become it's never enough to keep up.
