If you’re going to criticize someone, criticize them for what they do, not who they are.  Conflict, debate, discussion and disagreement are all part of sharing in a community.   Please be thoughtful and respectful in your comments, and remember that even with a screen in front of you, the person on the other side is still a human being worthy of  respect and human dignity.  Choose your words thoughtfully, be open to the words of others and listen at least as much as you speak.
