I think the hostility is based on two basic points -
First is the fact that there was a great deal of discussion on this
topic several months ago. There seem to be two results of the
discussion: those who think we talked, we decided, now let it rest;
and those who don't think we discussed it enough.
Second this is an extremely subjective topic and the discussion has
tended to move into logistics of achieving the goal. For those who
are not yet be convinced that we want this, these discussions are like
putting the cart before the horse.
Unfortunately, efforts to determine why we want or don't want a
Principality run right up into that subjective area. It's much more
difficult to deal with, so the discussion slips right back to
logistics. It's a viscious cycle - and it get on a lot of folks
Personally, I'm still waiting to hear from more folks why they think
it would be fun to do. So far I've heard a couple of good ones - Any
more out there?
