What you call abusive and couched in pretty academic language, one may of
also call intelligent, to the point and carried by strong convictions. I
admire her precise way of argumentation her ability to look into the details
and implications what was said. I also think, she rightfully reminds us not
to treat things lightly or superficially.

The list would, to my opinion, suffer severely if her posts were missing.
