Hello all Thanks again for your responses to this thread over the last few weeks. Ironically I had to miss our meeting on the subject, but heard from various sources afterwards that it was a very-well facilitated session with, as you'd expect, quite a wide range of views. Your input to it was appreciated. Here is a brief extract from the notes afterwards. What will be interesting will be to see if in 2 years' time the behaviour has changed significantly. Mostly it's good now, and I don't expect that to change, but will the occasional firestorm still happen? And will everyone still be on board or will some come off email for discussion?
