Pl stop personal comments (cynical me, paranoia a la Guru, etc), not
becoming of somebody who is a "moderator". Such comments are clearly
designed to "shut up" people, so that fearing unpleasantness, people
will not speak. This is not "list" democracy. In the real world we
call this bullying. So moderate your language and try and express
yourself without various adjectives. All of us are taking time to
discuss issues. So pl confine the discussion to issues and leave
personal opinions, views about people out of this. This is important
if we want to work together.
