I am sad to announce that my prediction has come true. I do understand that this is a social online network where are have strong passionate debates. But to tell the audience that they cannot engage in any personal attacks is a form of dictatorship and prevents us from having a healthy debate. I think our rights as I stated before are being restricted. What do you think. See this thread below.

I've had lots of healthy debates without personally attacking anybody. I find it completely unnecessary.

Tis a shame really isn't it, we have to be civilised towards each other in order to argue. Who would have thought that?

Go vote on one of my debates. I'm not that smart, so it'll probably be an easy decision.

You guys are really over dramatic. These policies are good. They shouldn't be applied to Imabench, but the policies are good for the site. I doubt they'll be so strictly enforced as to not allow anyone to feel like they can be themselves and speak freely.

No these policies are not good. Because number one it is unrealistic. And number two to assume that it affects people emotionally is subjective at best.
Most do not care about the personal attacks here as it is the norm.

Are you saying that sarcasm in all its honesty should not be appreciated.

I know this crap is ridiculous. I'm sorry, but people remind me of a bunch of whiny kids who are mad because they didn't get the piece of candy that they liked from the teacher. It's best to just ignore these people who continue to complain and whine. Let them whine to themselves. That's my opinion. And if you don't like what I say, so be it.

Um, I'm not implying that I agree with this view, but you do know that many of the users on this site, including imabench, think that YOU are one of the idiots ruining the site with your stupidity, right?

Again, I don't really agree with them, but I still find it slightly ironic...

Oh trust me.. I know there are quite a few people who think I am one of the people ruining this site. Though, that is furthest from the truth. I actually love heated debates, The problem is when people just go around simply for the pleasure of trying to make someone's life hell by spewing public insults without any productive public discourse on the topic in question. I mean if someone thinks someone's ideas are stupid, by all means say so, but with your claim, back it up with your explanations and evidence.

Did anyone read the terms of use? What is the point of any rule or law if one just arbitrarily ignores them because they don't conform to their liking or agenda. Why don't all the complainers go start their own troll/debate site and then they can personally attack anyone they want for any reason they want under the terms of use of their new Troll/Debate site.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

It probably will be a great debate. Both of us are passionate about our beliefs and I imagine it will be quite a show for others to watch.
