the rules announcement that appears at the top of every page of the CCSVI forum, can be found here:
"If you disagree with someone, please succintly state why and let it go at that. Point, counterpoint, counter-counter point, etc. is not useful-- the reality is that after the first disagreement, you will rarely convince another of something they feel strongly about unless you have shocking new information to share. The drawn-out debates also turn people off from reading the messages in the first place. If you really have to get something off your chest, please send that person a Private Message-- there is no need to have a long argument in public."
personally, i wish that people would respect this rule. i have no idea why we can't seem to have a balanced middle ground discussion.
as things currently stand (ie for 2+ years and counting), the culture of wilful misunderstanding and abuse from the vocal minority will continue to result in topics being shut down.
