Absolutely. It's also good that other people stand back too, and not
weigh in on one side or the other. The fires on "the other list" have
now gone out, leaving a lot of nasty slag behind, they
were actually started by folk jumping in and being abusive on behalf
of somebody else they thought had been slighted. may we always
be as nice as we are!

And all clever people were good,
The world would be nicer than ever
