He (F. Neumann) is simply arguing in a very long winded way that the 
list should be more concerned about the feelings of the people on it, 
rather than about what is correct or incorrect. Its all about saying 
"not quite correct" instead of "incorrect", and other time wasters. The 
likely result is that Cricket gets bored of the politically-correct 
clap-trap (not post-modernist clap-trap) and decides to leave, taking 
away our one source of true information. But maybe this isn't a problem 
for Mr. Neumann - if we don't know the right answer, nobody will ever 
feel bad.
