This discussion is an excellent example of why we can't have nice things here anymore.
I disagree. And it should be okay to disagree. The reason this forum is dying is because of the intolerance by a few of the diverse opinions on every subject from Hot Tubs to Pork roll sandwiches. We don't need to censure all disagreement. Let it happen, even if it trends toward borderline civility. Why do some want to tamp down any opinion that is different from their own? I want to know the opinion of others, even more so if different than my own. The key is to show respect for someone's differing opinion.
You think this board is dying? The only thing I saw that died was the continual back and forth between a few posters espousing their political views. That was shown to be verboten, and those posters have either towed the line, or been banned. (Some may have left because what they seek is political discourse.) If that's what some are looking for I suggest they find a new site to brow beat their opponents.
