Just a few messages up I commented on this.  1) "Templates that are
divisive and inflammatory" is not equivalent to "Templates designed
for user pages that express personal beliefs, ideologies, ethical
convictions, or viewpoints on controversial issues".  In fact, I
believe the former is obviously a CSD, while the latter should not be.
 However, I now see these two CSDs have been split.  2) Jimbo's
comment was " 	At least for a little bit, I advise everyone to chill
about this. Let's take some time to reflect on this issue as a
community. That means: don't make any crazy userboxes designed to try
to trip this rule, and don't go on any sprees deleting ones that
already exist."  That seems to me to be a statement which explicitly
states he is *not* making an edict.

Well, it's still important to know whether or not this *is* an edict,
even if the fact that it is is not necessarily conclusive.
