Sorry to do this again, but we appear to have another influx of commenters. Just a reminder to the new people to be civil and respectful even when you suspect the person you're debating is a blithering idiot. More often then not, you're probably wrong. 

Avoid overheated rhetoric, presuming motives and--more than anything--all caps. NO ONE LIKES BEING YELLED AT.  One warning on the first time. A banning will follow.
