Ahem. Tough love time.

I believe the phrase 'tough love' was coined to describe a parenting technique for parents of unruly teenagers, to be used by individuals deeply involved and caring about the recipient of the so called 'tough love'. Not the case here. It's not love, it's not accurate, it's a superfluous phrase...

Could we can the personal attacks on this list? That would include the way a person looks, talks, and writes.

I personally enjoyed Rahul's post. It was vigorous, strongly felt and colourful. He may not be a native speaker of English, like many on the list. He may not be writing in the same style he would use to write a manual. So what? There is space for all.
