    Might be an idea actually – going on a polite offensive rather than always having to explain your position.

    I think I would rather be called “emerging” than emergent as in all honestly there are many areas where I do not really know my position as yet – still emerging or trying to emerge from the muddy swirl of confusion and conflict
