We'll do the debating. Don't feel that you have to. Other people's
conversations are there for you to ignore or join in on, but I would think
you'd care that this man be given more than a two or three-post chance.
Everyone new here must feel a little strange at first or like they're just
jumping in during the middle of something. It would take at least a month
before you'd be able to form an opinion and even then you might be able to
see that some good was being accomplished, even if it were only in our
polishing our own approaches and debates on a variety of subjects.
