Re: On Civility, Political Correctness, Honesty, and Frankness

Hi folks,

To address some of the points raised in some of the above posts before I run out the door...

Civil and respectful conduct are not obstacles to honest and frank discussions -- rather, I would say that they are catalysts for such, as they keep discussions from entering into unnecessarily divisive, derogatory, and hostile rhetoric. The most passionate disagreements full of honest and frank opinions can be couched with consciousness, consideration, and sincere respect for the opinions of others.

Please do be passionate. Please do disagree. Please do be frank. Please do be honest.

And, please do be civil and respectful.

My recent post on "Request for Civil and Respectful Conduct" may be found here:
