I think I have a tendency to stir up controversial issues whenever I join discussion groups. I don't like sucking up to popular mindsets, or weaving an entire web of side discussions before coming to an important topic. I ask directly and expect people to ask me directly, I question common assumptions already taken for granted knowing fully well some discussion groups have political issues with such open questioning.
I hope enough people here would have an open enough mind to engage in constructive discussion with me to make interesting discussions occur.
