I agree a sense of respect and civility needs to reign on forums for the "art of harmony". Unfortunately, there are those who only get their kicks by stirring up controversy or attacking other. It's human nature and I doubt we will change it. We all could wish for an art in which the participants in all aspects would demonstrate the respect and courtesy displayed on the mat. Alas. Humans are humans. Although it does little for productive and interesting conversations, we will always have those who will attack and demean others without real provocation (although they may think they have). Free speech I guess, but not without a cost in this case.
