[Coral-List] Macroalgae in the Keys

Let's just remember that we're all passionate about coral reefs,
and it's easy to take offense when somebody says you don't help our
precious resource in the proper way. I can not see how somebody could
have, say, a sinister motive in what they do to help the coral reefs;
they just might not do it the way you would if you had the chance.
Some people have the advantage or authority to do something you can't,
and sometimes some people have better ideas than those people; but the
fact remains that we all have to keep the prize uppermost in our minds
and try to work with each other.
So, now that everybody has had their chance to politely blast the
other publicly, can we make sure we tone things down a little and come
back toward merely stating those rather dry and less emotionally
charged facts? We don't want to make enemies here, we want to make
friends and colleagues for "the cause!"
