Did I get this right that you think that a person can be a problem that 
possibly would have to be removed from the project?

If so I heavily disagree with that.

I think its crucial to make a clear distinction between the behavior of

(without the notion that emotional support for a person means something 
bad or negative about the person who receives the support).
