The level of discourse around here keeps getting worse despite repeated attempts to redirect. I am *this* close to changing things over so that you have to register to comment, though I would very much prefer not to. This would also mean potentially blocking certain people from using the site.
The basic problem is that a number of people here do not seem to know how to disagree with something without being mean or attacking the person with whom they disagree. I want that to change, because I do not like to have to read that negativity every day on my own site.
Take a moment before you comment and do what it takes to dial it back a notch.
