But the way you did it caused the discussion to change from what it should
have been, to what could have easily become a full fledged flame fest.

The problem with that is simple, if we make a policy that pleases you, it
would probably offend someone else.  The SCA has many different political
leanings involved in it, I know people that are extreme *right*, and extreme
*left*.  Developing a policy that works for one group, will annoy the other:(

I wanted to come up with a *safe* guess on how well known you are.

Yes, that is exactly what you did, but again, it was the way that you did it
that upset some people.  If you had not pushed so many *hot* buttons, you
could have probably created a good on-going discussion of the issue, as it
is, there are some who will not wish to discuss this.

Again, I agree with you right to question, but IMHO, you would do better to
question, without pushing *hot* buttons.
