Several of the posts in this thread have been removed.
Unfortunately, several posts that in themselves were not bad, had to be moved also because they were intertwined with the bickering posts. We are sorry for that.
Several posts that started out as nothing more than a spirited discussion/debate on the topic, quickly disintegrated into a shouting match and an argument between the members... so ALL of those posts were moved.
This topic has brought out some very strong emotions on both sides of the issue. We are a discussion board, and we encourage our members to discuss both sides of every issue. However, we also expect our members to discuss both sides with respect to the rest of the community, and with respect to the person who has an opposing view. "Attack the post, not the poster," and keep the conversation, calm, rational and civil are point to keep in mind from this point out.
