As you might have noticed, I'm trying not to enter
into the bottomo of the discussion. I have my own
point of view, as most of us do, but it's as you say,
the thing might escalate. In the bottom of all this
discussion lies someting deeper, that makes (in my
opinion) the participants being talking about
absolutely different things, and thus it's impossible
to reach an agreement.

I'd prefer to delay this discussion until a moment in
which the cohesion of the group is not in question and
concentrate right now in the things we have in common,
not in the differences. I don't wanna lose more
members of the group just for this offtopic

Anyway, if you want me to say explicitly what I think
about what we were discussing yesterday, of course I
can, but I think it won't be of any good to the group
right now. I'd prefer to wait until the group is ready
to discuss this in a civilised way, and not everybody
being in the deffensive, as yesterday.
