To Bruce: Of course moderators have to be treated in a special way! Maybe now
you understand why?

What about:

#1. deleting the post.

#2. sending an email to Fernando saying "Sorry, I have deleted your post to
avoid some trouble, but let's talk about it tomorrow together with Karinsdad and
decide if it is appropriate to repost it".

Just doing point #2 would have saved us from a lot of trouble I think. Just a
little bit of tact, you know...

To Fernando: I think Bruce is right when he talks about "self-immolating in the
middle of an intersection". That's how I see your message too. This kind of
message now makes me laugh. We have seen so many of them. Why didn't you first
talk about it with Bruce in private?

BTW I voted for BOTH Bruce AND for Fernando. I thought they were very different
but were, all in all, more representative of various interesting people we find


Now I still think Bruce is able to do the job (but can someone send him the book
"How to make friends"?), and it looks like Fernando's fuse is way too light...
