Except at night.

This is how on line forums work. This is how sports bars work (pick a team). This is how *people* work.

I'm not saying it's right in some way but rather that these sites don't have a magical solution to the wider problem. Don't expect forums to solve everything. Treat almost every (well, ok, every) forum as a viewpoint and not as a collection of viewpoints.

(And I need to fix my OpenID. ugh. Using a dead provider.)
