'Tis not the job of a moderator to stop people writing here. The rules are pretty simple:
reported ad hominem attacks will be investigated (and if found to be true) or write stuff that could get the site into trouble
and you'll either be warned / your post deleted, or - worst case scenario - banned either temporarily or permanently.
This particular thread has had a vigorous exchange of views, and perhaps more heat than light. But the quality of the debate - it seems to me at least - is down to the lack of information. That, in and of itself, means that whatever side you happen to be on is for a fan, very frustrating.
So, I have no intention of closing threads just because the quality of the postings isn't great. That is not the role of a moderator.
If you wake up the following morning you can always delete something you wish you'd never said.
