I get that and i try to present my arguments in a way that is 
understandable.  But Mikel's style of communication with complete 
refusal or inability to even acknowledge the possibility that there are 
valid views that contradict his own make it rather difficult.  I can 
have a reasonable argument with almost anyone who is willing to reason 
no matter how different their views are from mine but without the 
willingness to argue and reason on eye level this is difficult even if 
you are not so far from each other culturally.

Very good idea.

Any considerations, discussions and decisions on CoI matters should be 
publicly minuted.
