I’ve received a few comments/emails from some of our “lurkers” who don’t post comments here, but who visit on a regular basis. It seems we’re making them a little nervous, as our spirited debates border on becoming personal. They don’t want to see us lose that sense of camaraderie we have between us, in fear of it ultimately placing a damper on our blog.
I’d hate to see that too.
Political discussions between people who are passionate about their perspectives can become emotionally charged at times. I’m not asking that we steer away from such issues. I’d just like to ask that we take a deep breath, and remember to focus our debates on the merits of the opinions shared – as opposed to the persons holding the opinions.
