I had to freeze and screen a thread because of the heated comments getting out of hand. I enjoy a good debate, and realize that people get to be snarky and smart ass - and that's usually all right. But, when it starts getting out of hand, we have to step in.

We rarely ban people from the community, but the moderators take time to discuss if it's necessary to do so; we don't get paid to do this (points to tip jar...), so it's not something we enjoy doing, unless we've had a bad day and need to destress! ;-) ... kidding.

Anyway, no one was banned this time, but we do ask you please be civil in your interactions here. Wikipedia has some guidelines for doing so, if you're curious.
