If someone is so much more wrong than I am in debates on the internet, that clues me in that I can make my last post and leave the thread knowing I was right.
Its absolutly silly to feel the need to call anyone a jerk or idiot no matter how you feel. No one will break down and just agree with being called that, and its the SIMPLE way out of a debate. Not the smart way.
Frankly I'd rather read good debates, not "Your dumb" threads.
I believe this website allows more to be said than almost any other large reptile website. On queensnake it is far worse and if the topic moves away from that brake neck grandma knitting speed they keep it at, they delete posts. At least here you can go much further than that. For me, that makes it easier to respect the rules.
