Frank, I agree with you in principle but not in practice. In reality, when we feel a moral obligation to correct someone, here-in lies the problem. Both sides wants to prove their point because both sides think they are right. We are not morality cops. If we strongly disagree with a post, we make our objection ONE TIME and then let it go. If it still bugs us, we should take it up with one of the moderators in private and let them be the judge.
Believe me when I see something that is not right, it kills me if my point of view is falling on deaf ears, but I learned to leave it be.
One thing I did notice is that after a long period of time (like in too much time on here), members do tend to feel like the morality police and become aggressive and at that point, when we see it in ourselves, it's time for a sabbatical. If we dont see it in our selves, then the above situations arise and a referee is required - the dreaded moderator intervention.
Ask me how I know.LOL
