Posy I think that the difference between this forum and others where there is often political debate, is that many of us have been here a long while, we have come to know each other pretty well, and shared hopes, fears, sorrows and happiness. When you have that sort of relationship you actually care what others think and it becomes personal, whether that's intended or not.
That's why, if we're going to talk politics here we need to take care, read through what we've written before posting, and try to see things through the eyes of others who may have different views and different life experiences.
if someone wants more robust debate there are political forums where that is what is expected.
