On reflection, I think my correspondent has a point. The list is open to a wide variety of views, which annoys a lot of people; I've had social democrats urge me to boot the Leninists, and Leninists urge me to boot the social dems. I don't want to do that. Call me oversensitive, but I don't want to run a list where I get constantly taunted and insulted. I'm going to try ignoring the major malefactors for a few days; if that doesn't work, I'll haul the steel-toed boots out of the closet.
