Well, I'm sorry if arguing a contrarian point of view on this board is considered antagonism. From what I have seen, the other people here are quite capable of defending their positions, so I am not sure why you would consider them so fragile and sensitive. They are writers, after all, and therefore opinionated.

However, I do tend to rail against what I consider dogmatic opinion disguised as advice - which is far more unhelpful to writers than I am - so if you think the board would benefit from one less dissenting voice, you can boot me off and I'll leave you all to it. It's been fun.
