I didn't see it as that big an issue.
Nicholas
I think this has gotten blown out of proportion.
My initial suggestion was only meant to make your post more accessable to many of our members. For example, in this latest post you say:
When I read the original post by a student being taught about neoteny in humans, I instantly recognised what he was talking about. I'd been really interested in these theories aswell and thought neoteny made partial sense. But my extended research into the subject completely changed my mind, and so I felt this person would be interested in reading about my opinions of it.
That is a clear and succinct statement of you position, but it is only here that you finally made it. A shorter statement, particularly if it was followed by a short bulleted list of your key objections would have had more impact.
If someone then questioned or challenged one or more of those points, that would have been the time bring in the big guns.
Anyway, I'm glad you're here and I really hope to learn much from you in the future.

Good thing you brought that back on topic at the end
otherwise we might have had to ban you, if of course, we had not already reached our quota.

Re: A suggestion for AdminJar
No problem. But since I jumped on Hydarnes about staying on topic I really had to respond to you as well.
I thank you for bringing your comments here.

Re: A suggestion for AdminJar
If you feel I singled you out, then please accept my appolgy. That was not my intent but rather to simply show that there would be no more discussion of that issue in that thread from anyone on either side.
Again, if you feel I was over harsh, I'm sorry. I will certainly consider what you've said and will try to do better in the future.
