D-NATURED That is all fair and reasonable. It is my opinion that is more a question of self control, and that becoming 'passionate,' if you will, more often than not leads those involved in the conversation to devolve into name calling and the like. Thus the content of the discussion actually moves away from the subject which you find so important.
The second point is that we are a community here and I do think there are some standards we all need to adhere to. I am not here to claim definitively whether or not you were nearing such a standard, but personally it is my opinion that any discussion of physical contact amongst one another in a hostile manner is over the line
I also apologize for not responding to you here since I called your motives into question it was only fair to respond to your questions. The problem was a combination of being overwhelemd by the questions from the three of you and a presupposition that further conversation was going to devolve is what inspired my temporary silence
