You are not open for discussion ! You talk like Michael, me and maybe
others are stupid. Stop doing that, we have to solve this as a team.

That's not at the all case. Rene are you aware that your words could
easily be seen as unsulting ?

(and nothing else than this single world)

Respect other people's ideas if they have though about it. Maybe this
issue is more complex that it might seem.

He does not write BEST for nothing.

What should I say about this ? This clearly IS an issue, otherwise we
would not be talking about it. You are violating people.

There is no reason at all why this should be so. It is YOUR OPINION that
it should be so.

Working in a team also involves respecting the other team members and
using the appropriate language. I want you in the team Rene, you have
done a lot in the past, taken part in the discussion and I really
appreciate that. But you visions should be put in a more mild way.

So far for my meta remarks.
