That is my whole point. I followed the thread untill the tone got really 
nasty. Then I tried to show the people bithching at eachother that there is 
actually nothing to bitch about.

People seem to get the *feeling* that stuff is "enforced" upon them. Where did 
I say that this is actually happening?  
Or at least seem to get the feeling  that people are telling them to do stuff 
in a way they don't like. Did i say this is the case, currently? 

I know that no-one has to participatein any of the proposed plans, that is my 
whole point. We should avoid to give others that feeling. And apparently, the 
nasty and strong replies, indicate that a some of our developers seem to 
misunderstand this. 

I believe in a guild system, I love the idea of apprenctices. But I think 
others misunderstood the ideas completely, and again others saw the proposal 
as a rant on how stuff goes, instead of a solution. My mail tried to explain 

Is that considered "spreading FUD again? When one tries to step inbetween and 
show both parties that they are not at all "two parties" but in fact one. Am 
i then pshingpeople for a fight? Showing people the problem from another 
point of view? 

It seems that a lot of peoples intentions are misunderstood lately. And it 
seems a lot of really personal bitching has come out of that too. 

 We should recognise that critique is good. Not bad.
 We should never direct that critique at persons, because then it becomes 
bitching. Then we slip words like "you have not", "you are .. again" etc 
 We shoould recognise that person A has a different problem then B, different 
itches. And that that means that A and B's solutions can conflict. That is 
not bad.
