Sorry Occam, I disagree.
The shift came with George’s ambiguous sigh and sad smiley (Post #70), which I took to be a comment on Mriana’s point, which did seem to be that she thought her deliberate exposure of her kids to a variety of points of view helped them to fight off the local hypereligious culture’s influence (was this not part of your point, Mriana?). She and erasmus asked what George’s post meant, and I took advantage of the opportunity to clarify and simultaneously tweak George about an ongoing difference of opinion we have. Erasmus, George, Mriana, vanessa, and I then followed the digression (still related to the original subject) until post #112, where my fellow Moderator Occam hijacked it with a cryptic yet pointedly acerbic comment about the ongoing discussion. Blame enough to go around, boys and girls.
