I'll be moderating this thread going forward. I'll start with a simple suggestion to work at finding some common ground and then to work outward from there. I'll also suggest that accusatory approaches are counterproductive.
This is just a Coffee House thread, so naturally there aren't going to be any suspensions (well, I shouldn't rule it out, but someone would have to try awfully hard to get suspended). After years of serving as moderator there's one overriding lesson I've learned: while moderation skills are helpful, the success of moderation is far more dependent upon the desire of the participants to reach a resolution. Absent that desire, moderation will be unsuccessful.
I'd like to see more effort finding common ground and less effort chasing people from the field. I don't think anyone should be trying to answer the question, "Can I be a big enough asshole that people will just stop responding?"
