OK I have seen a few post recently that have fell into nonconstructive finger pointing and name calling. So first off I must remind people of Wheaton's Law which is straight to the point "Don't be a dick" . Try not to post things in a way that some may find offensive. Say "I disagree because I see/feel that it is this way" not "Your wrong/stupid/foolish etc because of this or that". Try not to post on things such as faith or politics. I understand that at times this is impossible and when you must be ready for desenting opinions. Keep it rational do not condemn someone for their political/religious beliefs but also do not try to compel someone to your thinking by insults, name calling. or condemning.
If a moderator/admin give you the play nice warning guess what either drop it or play nice. This is not a political/religious site remember that, also if a thread is closed/pulled it's over. This site is privately run and the admins do have final say. Don't make a second thread asking why it was pulled. If you must know why or don't agree why send a PRIVATE message to the admin team asking for an clarification . If you want to get into a heated talk with someone who also wants to get into a heated talk send them a PRIVATE message.
I understand that some people have a hard time keeping their mouths shut on some topics. If something floors you that bad that you feel you must respond harshly, get up from your keyboard go for a short walk calm down and comeback when you have calmed down. This is a site for all people touched by Diabetes and we must accept that not all people see things the same way.
