You have some topics banned on this forum because they cause flaming. If you want to deal with flaming, ban the flamers. The only real problem with flaming is that it keep discourse from happening in the first place, which is exactly what it is meant to do: it's meant to punish people for bringing up topics they don't want others to hear. By banning those topics you give the flamers exactly what they want. It makes you no better than them, or then the fundamentalists who prevented discourse of science over the centuries, because censorship of discourse that is also the only problem with fundamentalism. It just goes to show that after all, science isn't that much better than fundamentalism. It's still made up of the same kind of fragmented, closed communities, and this forum is contributing to that fragmentation in much the same way as the Vatican once did.
