No ones making or taking offense or breaking any board rules. YOU might not find it productive, but I think it is. Silver Surfer had a criticism he wanted to share, and I disagree with it, but I'm glad to hear it. As a moderator I actually WANT to hear it. It's a consensual discussion, not some flame war. No need for an extra layer of moderation here. But thanks for the back up.

The issue for me is that you are a moderator and I don't understand why you choose to be needlessly rude to people. Maybe you're not serious with the comments you make, but they just come off as you feeling superior to everyone and thus not really worth having a conversation with. If you want to convince people of a point, it's probably not wise to insult people while you do it. It just hurts your argument.
