Yes. Thanks for that :-)

I see. I'd like there to be a way to have such discussions in a
fashion that is constructive: on the one side, the enthusiasm of
people arriving and saying "hey, let's change the world!" is very
valuable, and it's always sad to see it chilled, on the other side
the experience lurking in the old and seasoned corpus (an more
than that: the community) is as valuable.

I'd like to see such exchanges with no hurt feelings. On the contrary,
they should be enjoyable for all parties alike.

Is that the philosopher's stone? Or am I becoming senile?
