Could you point out a couple of those name-calling, insults which have occurred on this thread?
Oh my, no - I haven't EVEN read this whole thread - just bits of it. I was talking about the name-calling and insults which have reigned on this whole site for quite some time now. I've seen people be called a "Romney-bot" just for saying they will vote for Romney over Obama. Noob, troll....heck, I was even told I wasn't a real Christian one time because I said something critical of Sarah Palin.
Not to mention being called a "Perrywinkle", accused of supporting Rick Perry because I had the "hots" for him, on & on. Then, seeing people be cluster-bullied by various "posse-ping list" FReepers, simply for disagreeing with one-of-the-group.
Not saying the rest of us are saints - but it's pretty obvious that I'm not the only one that feels this way. It's the owner's site to do with how he wishes, but there are consequences to actions.
