we do allow dissenting opinion here. Provided that it falls within the topics I am comfortable with, and a communication style that I am comfortable with. Anything else needs to go to a different website.
I'm sure this is difficult, drawing a line in the sand where dissent crosses over into argument.
Although I am sticking up for the censored party, I lost my stirrups with him a few weeks back and posted poorly as a result. Burra pulled my post and I edited it into a more refined and eloquent reply. I do agree with constructive debate over combative arguments, but the line can be hard to see sometimes.
