No worries K3, do join us please.  Your input is welcome over there.  John
and I welcome your input there.

The concern on the part of ExiMod (and on the part of me for the time I
suffered the omnipotence of being the moderator here) was that particularly
during our quadrennial symbolic civil wars, the toxicity of our cherished
list became excessive.

I can attest from seeing 5 complete cycles of that, I was seeing a sixth and
most toxic form of it.  An example is that non-partisanship is seen as
partisanship by both poles of our highly polarized society, with the
non-partisan aligned with the other side.  Libertarians are used to that.
Fortunately, any resentment is one way; I certainly hold no hard feelings.

A solution was proposed which is temporary, lasting only until our time of
decision has safely passed, which is after all only a few weeks away.

Do join us sir.  Your input is most welcome.

K3, you post such interesting stuff.  Why so seldom do we hear from you?
