Ok ladies and gentlemen.... you have had one mod warning in this thread. This is the second and FINAL one.
There has been some wonderful back and forth in this thread and some great conversations and ideas from both sides of the issue. Spirited debate can be an eye opening and enlightening experience, but not when we begin to border on personal attacks and asides, and when the discussion becomes more about "who" rather than the "what."
Remember, attack the post/subject and NOT the poster. Several of the last few posts are starting to push that envelope. If it continues this thread WILL be moved to the litterbox, but not locked unless it gets to the point where there is no other way to keep the conversation on the side of civility.
We do not ever want to censor or limit any members right to share their personal opinions... thats the life blood of any discussion board. However the owners of this site have also laid down specific rules of conduct from our members, and when the tone steers away from being a friendly exchange of ideas, then as much as we don't like it, we have no choice but to move or lock the threads.
Proceed, but proceed with care....
