anyone urging caution in the CCSVI forum is going to get shredded
It seems to me that urging caution is actually a kindness. I am a seeker or truth. I don't think the majority here are lemmings blindly thrusting themselves off a cliff into the ocean. Lemmings don't discuss.
Granted I haven't read every post on this forum, but what is not kind is using words that make people feel demeaned and defensive. Anyone (not just you Lyon) who feels they are being "shredded" can try this experiment: consider how to word your objections, consider whether they could be perceived as personal attacks. I, for one, find debate healthy, but mean-spirited vitriol is not healthy. Sometimes it's not meant that way but no one can "hear" tone in a written message. We have to be careful.
We are all big girls and boys, we can disagree, but we should all be respectful and when we say something harsh in the heat of the moment, we should be big enough to think better of it and apologize.
Please. Thank you. Now bring on the opposing viewpoints. I want to know, there may be a cliff ahead!
