A kinder and gentler 2019

At the start of 2004 I instituted a "kinder and gentler" policy for dealing with people with whom I might not normally be friendly. During 2004 the policy was reactive – I was kind and gentle when replying to critics. I extending the policy for 2005 to become proactive, and regularly reached out to people with whom I might not be in agreement.

The Proactive Policy took a holiday while The Millenium Project was in hiatus from 2016 to 2019, but it's back. Under the policy, I write to people to let them know they've been added to the site, to ask them questions to clarify their positions or to point out problems with their arguments.
