Thank you for your feedback, I'd focus on the larger topic at hand rather than one individual, you're missing the point.
Thank you for reading so intently, I appreciate the time and energy.
Thank you for taking the time to try and explain your point of view. Maybe I jumped to a rash conclusion thinking you were advocating for censorship but I agree sensible moderation and examples of leadership and good discourse are of course always good things. The problems and friction we are facing here are a microcosm for the issues society is facing at large right now - it's a great opportunity for us to be introspective and address these issues as a community, but that doesn't mean to shirk away from the responsibility /opportunity. Maybe I am defensive, just like so many here seem to be because it's a hot-button issue that we are facing time and time again. The right answer and path forward will be one of moderation and open-mindedness. I will strive to do better in the future as I hope we all do.
Imagine giving advice to ostracize people for disagreeing with you.
Censorship is the way to salvation!
Just like this hypocrite...
What you said isn’t acceptable in this community.
Pretty sure her article is a direct response to other posts written here recently, but to each their own!
First day here at DN?
While I absolutely agree that nasty, unconstructive behavior should be called out, those terms are being applied to a wide range of comments that don't fit that bill. It's tribalism through and through and more akin to a high school popularity contest than the discourse of a mature, healthy community that truly welcomes discourse and differing viewpoints.
