just a note regarding the general tone of gV... please keep the flaming and aggression limited to node area17. this node was specifically written out as an outlet for potentially volatile discussion. the remaining nodes are intended to foster constructive, on-topic discourse. while it is expected that a worldEvents topic, for example, might generate debate, it is not acceptable for said debate to degenerate into name-calling, flaming, troll-baiting, demonisation, or other such behaviour. if you wish to initiate a thread with those types of elements as a feature, post your thread in the node area17. it is entirely possible that the node nomenclature is not sufficiently descriptive, and the MCP has queued it for review. ////////////////////////////////////// vigorous debate of this posting is encouraged, but under no circumstances should the thread be derailed or used as a venue to deride one another. let us make this more clear: the MCP will not, under any possible circumstances, tolerate off-topic commentary or ad hominem exchanges within the threads it initiates.
