There were aspects that were useful.  

But not the flame-baiting or flaming, nor the blatant misrepresentation of another person (for which you are yet to apologize, it seems).

Worse, the heat over this obscured the fact that there are other problems with this draft that need discussion (that are not process related, so I won’t raise here).

Finally, you are an advocate of conducting all discussions in the open. If we are going to have to deal with flame-baiting and misrepresentation on our mailing lists, I would prefer that it not be public. If you want discussions to be public, please try to improve the tone rather than lowering it.

Thank you
