I agree that we need to be "courteous, respectful and promote debates on ideas," but I disagree that we have to accept subtle opposites because the topic might be touchy. I'm somewhat confused about why there can't be a team of people who moderate the mailing list. That solution seems effective for most other Internet communities. Is it a question of manpower? -- Jacob "For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now — and never to be equaled again. If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened." Are you ready?
