It mostly depends on point of view. From your, there was no intention
of starting flame I guess. The all the things happened not so long ago
(few months) and there were flames connected to every question
associated to it. Simply, some people wanted the move, others did not
want. So every question concerning this can possibly start again flames
which (as many people on both sides hope) already finished. As far as I
