Play nice everyone! I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to post your point of view and discuss others' opinions without keeping a respectful tone towards the other members even if their opinions differ far from yours...
...and no, Nancy, that thread is out of question. If you have a problem with a thread or post, use the report post button. If you still have issues with how it's been dealt with, feel free to contact a mod, smod or admin to discuss it...there are a lot if interesting threads around here and it would be annoying to have to lock them because people can't maintain a civilized discussion or can't leave any arguments behind.
