danger, does not lend itself to discussion as well as PM. Admittedly, princepawn could have fought this battle out on the mailing list turf where it appears to have begun. But then again, from chromatic's entry, it appears that he wasn't aware that he had been published in the mailing list in question.

I think that this is exactly the sort of thing Meditations is designed for, though. In this case, it's a tad bit more combative, but nonetheless it's designed to make you, the viewer, think about the two sides here (everything has at least two sides here) and decide which one is better for you, the viewer.

I do not see this posting, or chromatic's reply as any other sort of attack than a technical one. Sure it seems personal at first glance, but when it comes down to it, princepawn is evangelizing one side and chromatic is rebutting. What's more natural? Do you eat everything that your OS vendor spoonfeeds you? No, you're technical (assumption based on the site's purpose) so you test to determine your actual limitations.

I'm watching this because I find it fascinating, but I'm reserving judgment until I feel like I can contribute. This is a good meditation because it actually forces you to consider choices.
