Dissenting opinions by knowledgeable people are necessary for discussions to be thoroughly examined even if they are sometimes combative.

Different opinions are welcome here.

Combative debates are not, neither are opinions expressed as facts.

we do allow dissenting opinion here. Provided that it falls within the topics I am comfortable with, and a communication style that I am comfortable with. Anything else needs to go to a different website.

I'm sure this is difficult, drawing a line in the sand where dissent crosses over into argument.

Although I am sticking up for the censored party, I lost my stirrups with him a few weeks back and posted poorly as a result. Burra pulled my post and I edited it into a more refined and eloquent reply. I do agree with constructive debate over combative arguments, but the line can be hard to see sometimes.

Bottom line; your playground, your rules
