I am not saying I want these things to happen. I am simply taking the 
line that they need to be fully discussed before they are written off. 
As no one else seems to be prepared to wear the black hat for this topic 
I am doing it.

I don't actually want to fight anyone.

I have noticed a theme with your responses to posts over the past few 
months that I am quite frankly tired of hearing. I hope you are now 
aware of this and will be more careful about your wording from now on.
