62. That my personal opinion inflames you is, really, your problem
There are ten of thousands of opinions posted here and there will always be someone who is hurt, or inflamed, or enraged or is dumbfounded.

In many cases, a decent debate can follow, in too many, however, a war of name calling take place with many "deleted message" posts.

I suppose I could have "alerted" the moderator to your choice of language and it probably would have been deleted but I've never believed in running to mommy to protect me. I believe in a debate and in a rational discussion.

Last week someone started a thread asking what brought people to DU. And many replied that this was a nice change of pace to be able to talk to other democrats and liberals, to express opinions without freeper attacking.

Yet, recently there have been many threads wondering about what is happening to DU, that it is "ready to boil over," that there is not enough tolerance, or too much of it.

As someone posted, above, some of us find this ghoulish others find it a story of bravery and yet others don't have any opinion but don't want others - me - to have one, either.

If and when you are ready to debate this issue, or any other, in a calm, rational mode, then perhaps we can continue.
