structure needs to be discussed, but not details like whether or not to use
subdomains, whether or not we're going to throw away pagerank, etc.

i think several of us have tried patiently to explain the importance of not
messing around with our position, pagerank, etc.  if you don't believe us or
understand what we're talking about fine.  however, please accept the fact
that perhaps others know a tad bit more about this than you do.  please
ditch the inflammatory attitude and the things like "kowtow", "desperate to
retain google's attention", "cope fine", etc.

i want to make this process work, but i can't if you insist on having an
opinion about everything, use inciteful/emotional/passionate/inflammatory
words and phrases, etc.  please help nip this stuff in the butt before it
gets out of hand and we end up getting *nothing* done, as usual.

agreed, so let's keep it at that.
