Re: Eh?

I think it would be pertinent here to remind people that El Reg does have comment guidelines - one of which is "We're thick-skinned, but..." - so I guess if you're reasonably debating the use of a contentious word/phrase, you're not going to get too much flack.

However, if you're crossing the line of politeness and trying to ram your opinion down someone's throat just because they don't agree with you... different ball game. Doubly so if you wander off topic in order to trot our views on something that really is not pertinent to what the article is discussing...

... triply so if you have previously advocated tolerance...
