about Nitika's editing prowess. So your comment strikes me as irrelevant -
and I'm sorry, but even if I'm in a minority of one, it did come across as
personal to me.

I also feel that comments like these have a strong effect on those whom
they name thus - they silence them. Specially when they are relatively new
to this culture, and even more so, when they are participating in a very
difficult and somewhat hostile thread. And they silence others who may have
spoken out.

So while applauding Nitika for sharing her views in this space, I also want
to urge that you and I not get into a slanging match on this point. Let's
agree to disagree, since I doubt we will agree on this.

At the same time, I very much appreciate your efforts to help and nurture
Nitika, which did come through in the earlier email too.
