Please will you reply if you agree, so we may know whether, if we do this, others will too.
If not, "I forgive you."

The proposal:
May we each agree to try to carry on conversations without using many short posts, and try make several of our points in one post?

Explanation, if needed:
If a person (me or anyone), who usually posts 10 short posts in a day on a particular topic, could carefully position all their replies on that topic into one or two posts on that thread, it would improve the flow of things.
If an argument is leading to apparent DEBATING PLOYS and furious short argumentive exchanges that clutter up the list, this seems to be the biggest problem.
I believe this could improve the forum without
distressing anyone too much.

Freedom of Speech must not be infringed lightly.
I don't think Creationism should be illegal to
advocate...even on this forum. And what Sam and Aaron post IS standard creationism as far as I can tell.
I don't agree with Creationism except I think we need attention to Intelligent Design in this world, and not just from a high-IQ crowd...rather, from our higher visions too, which anyone may help form.
When a topic is politically loaded, maybe Harv's idea of a modified debate could be adapted in another way.
