The yin and the yang coexist in balance my friend. Any time you try to skew that balance you create an imbalance, and we all know that imbalances aren't good for anyone and it leads to all kinds of unforeseen consequences that we hadn't anticipated.

Thank you for your input. It is exactly what I was proposing. Even though there is debate already on this idea, it is being carried out in a civil and respectful manner. In particular, when you, Gabby, make your point, there may be a counterpoint but so far all comments have avoided the contentiousness and condescension I have unfortunately come to expect as the norm. For me personally, it has taken a great deal of the excitement out of coming here for exchange of thoughts and ideas. I am absolutely certain it discourages others as well and the end result is a loss for all concerned.
