didn't say anything to him I don't mind putting on MR, here ya go-

Gosh, what a nice way to put it.  Frankly, I found the whole discussion 
rather educational, about people and attitudes, mostly.
     [Well, you know me - I've never held back on terminology.  While you 
     found it educational about people and attitudes, I've never seen any 
     of those discussions resolve anything.  I don't think that information 
     about people and attitudes is useful enough to justify that.]
I don't think the discussion about the Northern Principality would have 
gotten ugly, if the participants hadn't so readily decided that their 
opponents were engaged in some form of Machiavallian politics.
     [Funny thing, that - politics is the single entity that can quickly 
     turn into a "you're either with us, or against us" scenario.  And Lord 
     help you if you're not with us.  I have a differing viewpoint than 
     many people on the principality question, which I am fairly careful to 
     keep quiet about, especially since Kane's not around anymore for me to 
     use as a sounding board.]
Leifr, the evil principality supporter ;-)
