I didn't see the original posts on the Transhuman List which led up to the
discussion on this list, which deteriorated to personal name-calling, so I
can't make any useful comments about the relative merit of the ideas being

But I CAN say that it appears to be Brian D. who took it out of the realm of
ideas into the personal. I don't know Natasha well, but I like her artwork
and her writing, and she's been nice to me, a stranger who came around
asking questions. I don't know Max at all, but his ideas are interesting,
and he seems sincere.

People don't like to take sides in someone else's arguments, and it may not
be a good idea for me to do so, either. But I feel terrible seeing nasty
things posted in public about these people--especially Natasha, because it
wasn't even her argument to begin with--and people not publicly standing up
for them.

I respect you, Natasha, and the ugly things Brian D. said about you reflect
on HIM, not on you.
