Seems some people are all shook up. That's not a good reason for shutting down
this discussion.

Certainly some participants here have shown unprovoked rudeness. But loutish
immaturity has always been an inescapable element of online, free admission
forums. Consider the type of people who spend all their time online. The place
is perfect for emotionally disturbed folks with no friends and a lot of
unresolved hostility issues. Glance at CIWAH for ultimate proof.

As one of them noted, however, this topic is central to the list's purpose, so
the calls to shut it down don't make much sense. More appropriate might be
calls for a moderated discussion so participants can be required to behave.
