Keep it clean and leave out the insults, which include phrases that are bordering on condescension such as 'my dear subject of the crown' or 'good sir Webmaster'. In and of themselves, they are harmless, but you know what the intent can be.

The subject matter is touchy enough for those involved that just stating the facts will be enough to upset. Pithy and witty side comments will only incite emotional outbursts rather than intelligent debate.

I agree with the points that Bill had to make. In fact, I have some opinions on history concerning slavery that do not go along with today's politically correct take, so I'm not the PC police. It just doesn't have to get personal.

Yes, it is my sandbox. If you go invest your time into putting together a website (which you may have already), you can set your rules there. I will not censor opinions that disagree with me, but I will not allow the forum to become a home for childish insults and name calling between 'damn Brits' and 'bloody Americans'.

So far everything has been relatively harmless, but I want to stop things from getting out of hand before they start. I've watched newsgroups and other forums degenerate because two people who disagreed get more and more personal until they no longer intelligently debate, but just flame and in the meantime run everyone else off. I may be overreacting, but I want clean discussion to be the goal.
