Well, when I read Matthew's post I didn't think he was advocating what he
was describing, just that things were degenerating further in terms of
posting style. Perhaps, I misunderstood him.

[Dotan]> Don't even defend your position.
However, this statement of yours, I view as inappropriate and somewhat
frightening for a community where we disagree on things often. I must have
misunderstood you, you can't mean that every time someone makes that
statement we should all stop discussing, or is that exactly what you mean?

BTW, I agree with you that posters should learn to start new threads
rather than hijacking. I also agree that new posters would benefit from
learning the community standards.
