Yes, Hawkeye, I am not suggesting we take away your freedom, and I am certainly not suggesting censorship (other than voluntary self-censorship which is at times good for all of us.)
Let me ask you this question Hawykeye... at its best, what do you hope to get from Able2know? We spend countless hours here typing tens of thousands of words at each other. What are we hoping to get out of it?
Whatever we want from Able2know, what we are getting is pages upon pages of personal insults. And they are as repetitive as hell, everyone knows what you and Izzy think about each other because you have told each other on hundreds of threads.
I don't think the personal insults do you any good Hawkeye. For one thing, they make it very easy for many people to shut you off, even when the point you are making is compelling. If you are calling people "imbecilic asshole", they aren't going to listen to the argument you are making (no matter how logically valid your opinion is). Instead they are focused on the name they are going to call you back... and reasoning behind the points you are making is lost.
All I am suggesting is that if enough of us voluntarily agree to act civilly it will be better for us as a group since intelligent respectful discussion will be easier and more common. And it will be better for us individually since if we aren't name-calling... then our reason is the only thing there is to respond to.
