Somewhat serious suggestion:

I suggest we refer to the two datatyping proposals as P and S.

P for Pat or Peter.
S for Sergey.

Pretty pointless paragraphs:

This has the advantage that we can then each think of the two 
approaches with our own personal prejudices.

Perfect, Splendid


Pointless, Silly.

Moreover we could limit all future e-mails on datatyping to one 
word per message.

e.g. "Positive" would be support for P.
"Standard" for S.

Our new recruit, as a special dispensation, would be allowed to 
send extra long, two word e-mails, such as "Patrick Stickler".
This would of course leave us none-the-wiser as to which of the
positions he advocated, perhaps both.

When the mud-slinging begins, it can be concise:

"Paludal", "Sodden"

An important advantage is that we then have a termination proof 
for our datatyping discussion: the P and the S sections of the
dictionary are both finite.
