Good morning everyone. I am sad to see that this post has decayed after going so long without any major incidents.
Given the advent of NextGen, this topic is more relevant and primed for discussion than ever before and there will be wide swaths of opinions in various areas. In order for it to continue though, it has to be done in a way where everyone can state their opinion without it becoming personal. Please remember this when both reading other people's posts, and writing your own responses.
Both "sides" (not that there is really only two sides to this complex discussion) are a bit guilty in this case so just as we all wish everyone could behave themselves in Disneyland, here too I hope we can self police ourselves and respect each other.
Remember, you don't have to come into a discussion with the intent to convince and convert others. The best way to do that anyway is to give a balanced, fair and well reasoned argument. It is always a good idea to realize that you might not have thought of everything and that there is always more to learn.
Note, I am going to remove some posts so that the mood here doesn't perpetuate. In the future, please report posts that break rules instead of calling them out. The former option will calm the thread while the latter will only escalate issues.
