    Great exchange of opinions when you reinterpret every comment to fit your preconceived view and the best dialogue you can come up with is calling someone a liar or saying fuck you.

    This.

    The quality of discussion on CU has been trending downward for quite awhile now, in my opinion.

    Nancy H has been one of the few, good faith contributors as of late. Devolving to petty bickering, personal attacks, and shouting “fuck you” at her because you have a different viewpoint is really off-putting and not constructive.

    Threads like this certainly make me think twice about wanting to continuing to post here, and I’m sure I’m not alone in that sentiment.

    Here’s at tip, you want dialogue don’t quote me and then replace what I said with “blah blah blah” while bitching that I’ve reinterpreted your comment.

    and you are a liar.

    99% of the topics here on CU have always been 100% fine.

    Heated political discussions like this one are where you find the fighting.

    This is not a phenomenon unique to CU. Check the comments section on any news article about these kinds of stories. Then check Reddit. Then check Facebook. Then check Twitter. You can find people fighting everywhere when it comes to these kinds of topics.

    If anything, the discussions here on CU have gotten better in recent years as new conversation places have diversified the platforms where people can argue and some of the vitriol has been taken elsewhere.

    Anyway, if you have any other constructive feedback for us, send me an email. Always happy to listen to input.

    This! Compared to many/if not most sites, it is usually quite civilized here, even when people disagree. The exceptions do happen when people get heated(this thread) or trolls sprout up, but that seems to be rather limited IMO.

    Also, if you go over the line, think about what you have written, and apologize-don’t let yourself get down(and stay down) in the mud like that. Again, JMO.

    Ferguson, Missouri (CNN) – A day of peaceful vigils to mark the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown’s shooting death turned ugly late Sunday when protesters threw rocks and bottles at officers, and police critically injured a man who they say fired at them.

    Stop Being So Angry About Tamir Rice, Says Paper of Record. And Please Sit, Quietly
    October 19, 2015
    By Anne Trubek

    In an Editorial Board op-ed published in the Friday, October 16 edition of Cleveland’s main newspaper, readers are instructed to be “patient” with the Tamir Rice case in the wake of Prosecutor Timothy McGinty’s release of two expert reports that claim reasonable use of force. I use “instructed” intentionally, because the editorial is patronizing, offensive, and tinged with racism: it suggests readers “just settle down,” while it portrays anyone upset by the recent reports as irrational and mob-like.
