Hi Russell,

I respectfully disagree with the above, to the extent that I don't think
that challenging our concepts is ever by itself disrespectful.
Of course, the manner in which concepts are challenged can be
disrespectful, but the challenge itself isn't. But it is not disrespectful
to disagree, even with "fundamental" tenets of our community.
