Dear Abhijit and Hassath, I wanted to say that Nitin may have a point there. Nitin has mentioned that what he intended to say is not what you understood from his email. Now, we know that language has its limitations and words are prone to misinterpretation, reinterpretation ...whatever (there you are, I'm out of words :-). And believe it or not, such examples abound where words don't accurately convey what a person means.
As in cricket, I hope you will have the generosity of spirit to extend the benefit of doubt and take Nitin on his word. I myself have no doubts about the intentions of anyone on this list. Everyone wants to have an atmosphere that is conducive to discussion and learning and where everone is comfortable participating. And we are discussing how to turn that want into a reality. But I do think that we need to focus on the larger issue and not on what some individuals may or may not have meant. If in doubt, clarifications should be asked for and accepted and people should certainly not be thanked *pointedly* for withdrawing from the discussion. Such deviation from the issue may succeed in making several people uncomfortable, and strangely enough that is the problem that this thread set out to solve.
