Because there are people here who have, at least in the past, shown
that they can quite well demolish somebody while still maintaining a
position that *they* are being civilized and quite justified, and they
will have friends who back them up and tell the demolished person that
they're wrong to feel hurt.
I have had a number of dear friends who are no longer on this list
because of just that. My closest friends who are also Bujold fans have
left the list. I forward on to some of them interesting things that
Lois posts. And I generally try to keep my head down.
