    position" becomes "a personal attack".

    I'd say the politics ain't bean bag, and never has been.

    I don't think the big problem is "dickishness".  I think it's smarmy bullshit.

    People like Brit and "Personal insults are ok when I do it, because when I call someone an asshole it's TRUE".  Or the "Yes, but I put an asterisk in asshole so it's not as bad!" crowd.

    I dunno.  My feeling is, avoid the hate speech and then let the fur fly.  

    Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?

      what "bean bag" is? Is it related to Beanball at all?

      I tend to think that you can refute a position in a calm manner and enforcing this would no do the site a disservice

        it's important to make it clear that it's fucking noxious, and to be very fucking direct about it.

        Mealy mouthed bullshit and efforts to be conciliatory toward evil are wastes of time.

        Feigned respect, false cordiality, and attempts to pose as "reasonable" all do more to obscure than to enlighten.

      It's obvious to honest actors who what and when. I provide the pie but I also don't point out specific dicks

      There are no sacred cows.
