Aggression vs. assertion

It seems to me possible that participants in this or any group could 
express their own convictions with confidence, without challenging 
others in a confrontational way or making disparaging remarks about 
them. It is definitely possible for someone to be consistently 
aggressive in behavior and motive without being consciously aware of 
it; hence having *intentions* that are not aggressive. But the 
above link provides a fairly reliable explanation of how to 
recognize aggressive behavior. It's a real problem here, especially 
IMO the pattern of "calling out" listmembers with repeated posts 
using their names in the header.
