You are right. Anything else water off a ducks back but politics = >:D. Is a music forum though. :(

I've been on other forums dedicated to a particular topic, but they gated the politic forum. That is a possible solution, I suppose, for those that can't control themselves.

Why do you care that random people, who you don't know and likely will never meet, respect you?

I don’t expect them to respect me personally, but a person can try to be respectful of another person’s opinion without resorting to ad homs or flame-throwing.

Ah, yes. An edict from the paragon of virtue.
