I don't consider something insulting if it can be supported
by argument and evidence.

I stand by my statement that Nikos behaved like incompetent
inconsidered jerk can be supported as such. So if this
is insulting it only is in the same matter that the
truth can be insulting.

Well nobody is representing the list. So where does that leave us?
And perhaps I am causing a lot of trouble, that doesn't mean I am
wrong. Maybe it is time to question the way this list in general
tries to avoid trouble.

Antoon Pardon.
