I am not sure if this is worthy of being in the RP. But, better safe than sorry.

Nothing religious or political there, so I'm moving it. Also, since this is a SW board and not a Transformers board, I doubt these guys are gonna know Dave.

Van Domelen makes some good points, but I think his argument plays into the hands of extremists on both sides too easily.

How so? His allspark affiliations aside, DvD is one of the less controversial, and clannish fans around.

But, that is not really DvD's fault though. And, he has since updated the article, touching in part on your point.

It is his fault since as the author he made suggestions without fully developing their borders or the sweep of their range, that doesn't mean it's a failure, just that he made a broad statement without quantifying it.

I can see what you are saying. Many of his later clarifications would likely have helped initially.

It's the kind of thing that works on a myspace blog, I think blogging has made people less careful with their words and concepts though.
