How we should debate.

Dear Colleagues,

I would not like to see any rules imposed that would tend to stifle
debate.  The recent interchange, apart from one or two ill-chosen phrases,
has really been stimulating.

I would be in favor of calling an amnesty on all ill-chosen words that may
have been used up to this point and hope we can continue stimulating one
another with ideas expressed in a way that is challenging, but not
confrontational or personal.

I know I learn a lot by being exposed to debates among experts.
