Nothing wrong with OP. It raises a vaid question and is inspired by current events. People who are blinded to the truth and/or can't articulate a cogent counter OP's point resort to name-calling.
It's a last resort for the weak minded ... sor of like calling your political opponants racist.
Responding with insults instead of cogent arguments is a concession. If you had a case against OP's point, you would have made it.
I disagree. A good quality "point and laugh" can convey just as much as a well-articulated diatribe.
Sorry your debate got cut!
