Religion in itself is something that can tear a forum apart. I like to think I'm a good person for keeping an open mind about things of the nature, and I defiantly respect peoples viewpoints. However, if someone starts shoving it down my throat then I will fight back. Weather it be online or in real life, if you preach to me, I'll preach to you.
On a forum, for example, when topics like this start up an an argument like I mentioned before happens, both sides are going to blame the "fight" on the other, because in their mind they did nothing wrong and it was the other person that did.
Also, on another note, where are our lovely mods? I sent Redshirt a message the other day and she hasn't answered it. And my brother recently emailed me because his account hasn't been activated for about 5 days now.
