Very true, but allowing separate Kosovan and Sebian chapters (which is
probably best for the WM movement, since the Serbian chapter
presumably can't operate effective runs the risk of appearing to
promote Kosovan independance. I would love it if we could stay out of
the dispute entirely, but it isn't easy to do.
It seems to me that doing the best for the WM movement only appears to
promote the best for the WM movement. Doing the worst for the WM movement is
what not only appear but is a clear proof of political bias. I only can
agree in preferring an imaginative solution to stay out of the dispute.
Yes, what I wrote doesn't really make sense, does it? What I meant was
that separate chapters is probably best for the WM movement, not
counting the negative impact of being seen to take sides in the
dispute. If you do count that negative impact, then it is much less
clear. People more familiar with the dispute than I am can try and
estimate the extent of the harm taking sides would do.
