The one and only time I will weigh into these flame-wars, as I think in the medium of electronic communications, it is generally futile.
I have almost infinite respect for what both Hari and Dan have achieved, their vision, drive, skill and experience (among many others on these forums, but these are standouts).
Similarly, I respect your intents, desire to move LMCE forward and good will.
Nevertheless - with my comments about communications in an electronic medium in mind - on several occasions I have had cause to be concerned about the tone in your postings. I have no doubt that they were written with no "edge" intended, nor a desire to cause bristling among the community. I'm sure they were meant as direct and constructive criticism. At the same time, they sometimes come across as "high handed", and pronouncements from "up on high".
It distresses me enormously that the community is expending valuable energy and negative emotion on these unproductive exchanges, even though I can see the cause in the hurt on all sides. Everyone here wants to see LMCE soar to its rightful place, and are doing what they are capable of to help achieve this.
Can I, respectfully, ask for you to consider this? I realise that you are simply expressing yourself as clearly as you can. Generally, from my perspective, there are only a few words/phrases in these posts that "get under the skin" and spoil an otherwise valuable contribution. It is often difficult to fully interpret how the written word will be read not matter how it was intended when written.
No different from how the scourge email is to communication (and I know, historically I was a MS Exchange Server engineer!), so can forums - please re-read your posts before hitting post with a mind to how someone else may read it, not knowing your intent or emphasis. Detail here would be unhelpful - however, please PM me if I can provide examples, and how I "felt" when I read them, even though they were not directed towards me.
Hopeful that this will be taken how it is intended,
