Well, because I've had my say, and because those who were against me have
resorted to name calling rather than debating, I am finished with the guns

However, I do take issue with posts such as yours which attempt to limit the
field of discussion on this list. Censorship, or anything like it, has no
place in an extropian world. I would echo the previous posts' sentiments
that "if you don't like it, skip the thread or put the disputants in your
kill file." There are a number of ways an intelligent person can avoid
threads they find offensive. There is no need to demand that people only
discuss topics of interest to you. Unless I am mistaken, I do not believe
this is the "Eliezer S. Yudkowsky favorite topics" list.
