You mean I'm not good at discussing? Or writing about discussing? Or Both?

I don't really care, because that's something that always can be improved(for 
example, in the case of inappropriate KUA articles). 

My questions about KUA concerns on a broader level, and of course just in 
general shed some light on what have happened.

I think it's easily happend a developer conflict goes amok, with no 
intervention and that the wide audience don't know what people actually say 
and behaves(applies for me too of course). Also, what this touches are 
central to KDE as a project, not only Me & Aaron's relation(and hence I find 
it relevant for kde-core-devel). If not, well, then I've contributed an off 
topic thread.
