try to be a little less reactive & sensitive Jamy,
you raised a reasonable topic
and Linda asked a very reasonable question
there wasn't even a hint of attack on you in her words
I've read her question several times slowly-
she's just expanding the discussion
we DO need to hold down the contention on CHMB
BUT question and answer is the ONLY way information is developed in a collaborative effort,
and in such "committee" work, requesting further details on a premise, or asking additonal questions about different aspects of the question is NOT a hostile behavior -
it's EXACTLY how any responsible, progressive focus group gets its job done
PLEASE keep putting up the interesting observations and questions
BUT please realize if you open a topic, it is NOT an attack on you for people to expand, challenge, question or even strongly contest your ideas !!!!
The trick is to be as gentle as we can to each other while being extremely rigorous and demanding re: the quality of the information we develop.
