Thanks for clearing that up, Ross. I apologize to Tom if I was overly
harsh. I think, though, that one can still "speculate" in public, as
long as the comments are prefaced carefully, such as "I don't know
whether this might work, but ...<insert idea>, although I welcome
critiques on the implications". I think censoring one's brainstorming
ideas in public because one might be criticized might mean that some
good ideas don't get presented at all. Expect to be criticized, as
that's how the good and bad get separated. I like to think of myself as
an idea factory, at times, and if I get 1 good idea and 9 bonehead
ideas, that's not a bad ratio! Folks have less to lose in terms of egos
when it's a "brainstorming session". We can always toss out the bad
ideas, and no one would loss "face" as long as one isn't married to the
ideas from day one.
