It seems like a pretty level conversation. Why does it need to be locked?

i agree primavera....these threads that have no resolution except to inflame serve no purpose except to dissuade people from spending time on more constructive things...

better if people stop flinging words like "slut" "horrible" "holier-than-thou" "stupid" and "ignorant".

It also allows people to see multiple sides of a problem Jujuw. If people are never allowed to finish a conversation, it never will have a resolution.

absolutely primavera...i don't care WHAT 'side' your're on...words are VERY wounding...and this is supposed to be a community here...well, great communities do not wound each other....

I totally disagree jujuw. For the majority, it was a good discussion, and I, for one, am learning a lot.

Those who get hostile ruin it for the rest of us, but when it gets back on track, locking it just defeats all the work the level headed did to get it back on track.

If a lock was gonna be called for, it should have been in the heat of the moment when the namecalling was happening.

And for the record, no one called anyone a slut... but yes, the term was used by that poster. And an argument was referred to as stupid and ignorant, not a person.
