Personally, I'd be very surprised if any of us (a) is saying anything incompatible enough with anyone else's experiences, and (b) has managed to say clearly enough what we mean, for there to BE real disagreements.
I don't think that lining up on one side or the other of any given perceived issue is going to help anybody, especially at this early point in discussion (meaning, back here in the late first decade of the 2000s, before things really get swinging). What I hope is that (some) people bring a (new?) awareness of the game's fiction as a material consideration to their game design, and secondarily and subserviently to game criticism.
