and the bottom line is that the posters here do not own the forum. The owners get to make the rules and ''hire'' security to enforce them. Debate and arguement can be constructive or destructive and anywhere in between. Destructive arguements need to be identified and corrected, IMO. You can walk into Wal Mart and argue/debate with a customer service person about your dissatisfaction with a product or store policy. But you cannot disrupt the overall atmosphere of the store without being confronted or, perhaps, being shown the exit door. Personally, I have a difficult time understanding what could be so important that clashes occur here as often as they do....and why, when feeling insulted, so many feel it necessary to respond in kind. I find it easier to just "consider the source". Prove yourself better by walking away.
this forum is dead when the censors apply their rules, debate and argument is the foundation of forums, censorship is the lowest form of humanity, arguement is the antethesis of human life, without it there is nothing.
One mans racist is another mans hero.
