Welcome back, foreveryoung
I'm glad to see that you have been reinstated.

Please try to follow the advice you have been given.

Try to avoid being angry (and I know that can be hard to do).

Pace yourself. Set a limit of how many replies you will do per day, and don't exceed that. Best is to reply in a way that will represent your position well.

Remember that you are not trying to persuade the other posters at EvC. Rather, you are trying to leave behind a record for other people (lurkers and guests) who read the arguments. And you will make a better presentation to those other readers if you can keep control.

I hope other people will try to avoid piling on. But even if they try, it will happen.

Maybe consider an occasional Great Debate thread, where you are debating with only one other person. Moose can help set that up, if you are interested.

Re: Welcome back, foreveryoung
I will always get angry. There is no avoiding it.

The positive thing, is that you recognize that it is part of your nature, and you are trying to minimize the bad effects it can have.

I suppose it is human nature, though perhaps it affects some people less than others. I know that I can get very angry at times. When that happens, I try to put of responding until I have calmed down.
