How Low are you going to go?
I get you are supposedly trying to keep others from deliberately treating others rudely but you have some seriously twisted ways of attempting to do that. I've browsed opinion pieces where you happily throw someone's OPINION out there at the world but offer no comments for feedback? You poked the nest now you are going to act like a coward and hide behind an "we want everyone to get along" claim? Try leading by example it benefits nobody to avoid a conversation on the subject because you may feel it will become heated. Why introduce it then? Man up and explain how you feel introducing one side of a subject you consider to be too controversial for a discussion is a great idea. You are instigators stoking a fire behind the lie that you just want everyone to get along. You act as if you want a Leave it to Beaver America but you are being Eddie Haskell and that is contrary to your claim.
