    I got a little offended in Politics a short while back. I gave it a good break of a couple of weeks. I then came back with a slightly different frame of mind.

    I'd like to defend the politics forum. It is actually very civil of late. I honestly feel like I like and respect all those who post there.

    Civil - maybe, extremely predictable and annoying - even more so.
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.


    Sometimes it is easier to widen doors than it is to open minds.

    You can find rational discourse with those who WANT to have it. But I agree there's a lot of mudslinging in Politics. I do both in Politics. I have rational discourse with those putting in the effort and showing that intention, while having fun poking at the idiots.
