It seems to me that for every person that can accomplish great things, there are 20 people that get in the way and say "it will never work! you are wasting your time! stop that!" and then there are 200 more than just don't care one way or the other. I want this site to be for that one person out of 221. The people who can see and understand what Sepp has accomplished. Who can understand the value of the wofati even though one has never been built to those specs. Who can wrap their head around how going to mars is possible even if it has not yet been done.

I guess I am saying all of this because I think it would be wise for me to ban five or six more people. To help set the pace for what I think is healthy. I want to say this out loud so that those five or six first have the opportunity to consider my position and decide if they can be comfortable with my communication style.
I think some of the communication styles I have allowed have scared off what would otherwise be people that would be a good fit for my style. That was my mistake.
