One of the great pleasures in Squeak-dom is the civility of discourse which
seems a fundamental here.
I think Paul's response to the concerns expressed on Slash-dot is a perfect
example of this sense of collegiality which leads to exploration and
creativity: that is he took what could be a divisive and insulting set of
remarks and allowed (well, me) to see something deeper in them.
Thank you to all who participate here -- keeping the ideas where our heads
ought to be.
