Many responses that I read are highly rude and derogatory as they tend to seek out weaknesses in the author rather than their argument.

This page is meant to be about community opinion and I feel that if I expressed my own thoughts on a matter, some arrogant and critical person would dare judge me and my moral beliefs rather than the facts I provided to support my opinion. …
