I didn't read the thread. But if it was anything like I imagine it was, then I think that we should just forget the thread and move on. There's no need for unfriendlyness. Sometimes we learn from disagreeing, but it is important that the tone is still kept friendly.
I think that it is good if threads are pulled before they get out of hand. So let's just forget that old thread and if anyone would like to discuss a particular yeast in a friendly way, then they can always start a new thread.
