Quote from: Ron EdwardsWhen the answers to these evaluations seem problematic, then treat the post like a fly ball. Let someone take it, or maybe a couple of someones. Yield in favor of people who've shown the ability to handle potentially-explosive topics before, which may mean writing your response in a word-processing file and saving it for revision and posting later. Let the discussion go for a page or so, and see whether the person's goals can be met at all. They won't feel ganged up on by one or two people, and with any luck, won't get into bear-pit mode, and then the Forge-ish discussion can begin.Best,Ron
