I'm getting freaking fed up with this crap. I'm going to lock this thread and any other after this in which there is anything even "resembling" name-calling or flaming. My mailbox is filled to the brim with complaints about this bickering and I'm going to have to insist that it stop now.
I would also like to add that AC supports a good, spirited debate and if you would like to "debate" a topic, go to it. That is a very good way to learn new ideas. As long as it stays above-board then we have no problem with it. But good, spirited debates do not include name-calling or belittling your opponent.
As Dale likes to say, a good debate proves yourself right, not your opponent wrong.
