The 'piffling issues' I referenced were the ongoing dispute over personality
clashes and the issue of defining 'respect' here on this list. Surely these
issues aren't going to impact too much on the ongoing project of getting
transhumanism accepted into the mainstream? If they are, it's no wonder it's
taking such a long time! I agree completely that from small issues spring
larger ones, but perhaps it would be of benefit to all if we discovered
small issues that had some relevance to what we're all doing here in the
first place. Just my humble submission, of course. 

Damian U.

Apparently it does.  The goal of reaching the future is related to our
ability to deal with "piffling issues".   Small issues form larger issues.
It is a our behavior that turns them into conflicts or solutions.
