I agree...while I certainly don't agree with everyone's opinion or
understanding of certain issues, I do believe everyone has a right to hold
those opinions -- and I guess I'd much rather have them out in the open
where I can *try* and discuss them then hidden inside where they might
grow unchallenged. On the other hand, it's nice to be able to *edit*
certain authors that I've found aren't interested in discussing their
ideas (just repeating them blindly) or threads that I've found
uninteresting and unending (I've edited anything with the words "Ed
Conrad" in it ;) one forces me to read stuff here and I don't
feel anyone should be forced to keep silent.
