In a real democracy, your approach of encouraging civility is certaintly the preferred way to go…but we do not have a real democracy and all one need do to ascertain this is to look at the last election results. So if we maintain our civility while our nation is taken over by corporate money and the conservative courts allow our voting districts to be gerrymandered to ensure continued rule of the minority, we will soon be living in our own personal version of Nazi Germany. No, Lrx, these are desperate times we live in which call for a united (uncivilized if necessary) front against these bastards to take our nation back…or rather, move it forward.

The lack of civility top down currently portends a desire for tight control of the masses. Trouble is brewing.
