Well, the problem is that the current situation is unbalanced where one of the
party has all the power, and is also judge over the behaviour of the other
party, and on top of that doesn't seem, even after over 6 months, to be able
to leave the issue aside and work together for the greater good, then maybe
your above analysis doesn't apply to the situation.

And if one party is trying to ammend, and makes every effort to work together
again, but get replyed "FUCK YOU", well, i think it is highly unfair to say
that both are to blame, don't you think ?
