My word... pip pip and tally ho what a disappointment it was catching up on what was going on in the LRR forums. My good people, I must implore you to remember that there will always be people whose opinions, beliefs, infantile spelling of basic words and errors in elementary grammar will seem to demand a response of stabbing them in the neck and setting their corpse on fire. However, this is teh internets, and sadly such responses are not (at our current level of technology) possible, although I am told that scientists are even now working on the punch-o-tron and set-corpse-on-fire plugins as we speak.
That being said, forums are so often the venues for young minds to crystallize their opinions and thoughts as they occur. Thusly, extremist opinions supported by imperfect understandings or research are going to happen. The only way to moderate these is through thoughtful dialogue. It is important to remember that the word "debate" comes from the old french debattre
meaning "to fight" or "to beat down completely."
My final word:
