Tensions are higher than a summer in Mordor. How about if I close the thread for awhile, and we return to the discussion regarding Cain at a later time? After tempers have calmed and the political nature has been diluted - not to mention the interpersonal sniping - then I can re-open it.
ETA: After considering the circumstances of the thread and the others it has inspire, I've decided to leave this thread closed. If there is any sincere desire to pursue discussion about Admiral Cain, feel free to start a new thread with aim towards avoiding the pitfalls of this one.
