[CSH] Most of the times when there is a disagreement there
is no reason to apologise. We just settle the issue with a
vote and follow the outcome in the future (until voted
upon again).

[CSH] All? Actually can you point me to a posting where
Alex apologises? I'm just wondering where you get the
"Alex often apologises" from.

[CSH] So, you think it's okay for 5 people to grant one
person more rights than the other 30 whenever they want
(and without telling the other 30 people)?

[CSH] I get the feeling that in some cases, what you
would call harassment of people, I would call critiquing
peoples actions. Maybe you could provide concrete examples?
One example where someone is harassed and one where someone
critiques someone else's actions. I can provide better
arguments in concrete cases than when discussing it in
general. Or maybe they are all harassment cases to you?
