Oh, it occurred to me that I should probably mention this: this is not so much a forum for debate as it is my sort of manifesto-type thing. It's not so much a discussion as it is what I think. You may agree or disagree and I suppose people can comment, but I would like to put it down in writing, or typing really, that I will not tolerate any comments that I find to be offensive or intended to put down another commentator, myself included. There are smarter, cleverer, and more gentle ways of criticism than flaming each other over the internet.
Just putting that out there.
