I wasn't for one second suggesting that the people posting weren't intelligent or mature.
Calm down, take a couple deep breaths...
No one said you were. Okay, Jesse Lava may have, but he was being stupid and immature...
...but seriously, I think it's OK.
I was only making my suggestion of locking the thread as i just don't like seeing people upset and to me it seemed that the continued discussion just seemed to be getting people worked up again.
...and here they have a place to vent. Eventually those who are mad will be less-mad, and
perhaps those (or that one
) at whom they are mad will come to better understand why, and
perhaps all can take some steps to move toward resolution of issues.
People who don't want to participate in this argument (like me, oddly enough) can decline to
participate. I read this thread out of a probably-misguided sense of responsibility simply because
I started it.
I should have just kept my nose out. Sorry again.
Nonsense, that's the whole point of a discussion: to air opinions and look at them from
various perspectives. Self-censorship is the worst form of all. [Not related to the immediate
post, but yes, one should think before posting... That's not censorship.]
