no bombs dropping here or heavy artillery being brought up from the rear but the thread recently closed started innocently enough with a couple pictures of a yacht turned into one of the most heated and divisive threads ever on here with some very harsh rhetoric and some nasty name calling yet at the same time it was spirited and got me energized far more than the usual days here.
So can we examine the good and the bad of having contentious topics of discussion? I still hope that we never become a forum dominated with political squabbling as are so many others yet it is short sighted to believe we should always avoid politics since we are all people with political opinions. Is there any way politics can be discussed without resorting to bring out the brass knuckles and leather truncheons? Is it actually good to have a bar room brawl from time to time to release pent up frustrations? I will say that I did enjoy the battle when it was on and suddenly, it seems very tame and too easy now here this evening.
What are y’alls thoughts on what transpired and how we should move on now that the thread is closed?
