While I do not approve of ad hominem attacks on the mailing
list, I think that we can go over much to the other side: We should not
be overly genteel about silly ideas. And I even defined why the Idea
was silly: Instead of the proposal, that seeks to measure activities
that require DD-ship to perform, and indeed are required for performing

If critiques of your ideas hurt you, I suggest you start off by
thinking harder about them, and doing a self critique t discover where
you might be falling short.
