That is doubtless true, and I am not unsympathetic to concerns about discussion here descending into the politics of the bear pit on occasions.

I'm not unsympathetic to those concerns either, but the idea seemingly being put forth that all suggestions should be shielded from any discussion of them is a bit disconcerting. There's a HUGE difference between objective discussion/debate/refinement and mindless arguing/bickering/opposition.
