Explain To Me ....
Explain to me why someone who, based on the title of their post, is looking for a justification to an argument would be so belligerent in asking the question?
Is it because:
a) They actually want to know and understand an issue and get many viewpoints?
b) They already have a set opinion and they want to rant and ask other people to join their rant who are of the same opinion and just piss off people of the opposite opinion, under the guise of asking for input.
If they were of mindset a) they would have titled their post "I would like to get both pro and con opinions on ....". Those are useful posts that I like to engage in and contribute to.
Type b) posts and posters do not interest me and I would encourage you to steer clear of them as well. They undermine civility on Caps. We already have a lot of polarized issues on Caps: bulls vs. bears, healthcare reform, global warming, gold, and I don't know, is Santa Claus real?
DO NOT engage in posts that are actively trying to exploit this rift.
DO engage in posts that are tying to honestly discuss these topics from several viewpoints.
