Have you ever come across a story that was seeded that you REALLY wanted to comment about? You were sure you had some insightful knowledge that would add to the conversation... that might even change hearts and minds? So, you labor over your well reasoned commentary for hours; you make sure to dot every "i" and cross every "t"... and when you have finally pronounced this comment "finished," you copy/paste it to the thread and hit "submit." You eagerly await responses... only to find out that your comment has been drowned out by a wave of trolls, angry-namecalling, violations and the subsequent bans. Your post is lost amid a sea of collapsed comments and lists of people warned about "violations of rule #1" from Tyler or Sally (bless them) and no one ever really sees it.
Well, this is your thread. :-) Any topic, any viewpoint... post your well-reasoned response here and be guaranteed feedback - even if it is only from me. lol I would ask that you announce the topic you are speaking of.. so we know where we are going... and adhere to all of the Code of Conduct rules. I would additionally ask that those who are responding do so with courtesy and with the intent of allowing everyone to express themselves fully. That is, after all, the reason for the thread. :-) Please do not collapse comments as I will take great pains to remove those posts that violate the rules.
