One major strength of TAG is the diversity of opinion and depth of
knowledge carried by a great many contributors. One cannot expect
everyone to agree on everything, and it is only human nature for the
occasional tiff to arise between strong personalities.
I have a great deal of respect for the regular members of this group,
and their generally evident ability to debate topics with an open mind.
Why not celebrate our differences rather than taking offence when
someone we thought was "just like me" turns out not to be?
