Good post.
It would take a serious breach of community guidelines for me to ban a member. It's the grit that makes the pearl; an opinionated member of the community stimulates discussion and often helps others to formulate and post their opposing arguments. A well-moderated lively debate is far better than a cosy consensus.

I hate suck-ups most, especially when their real motive is self-publicity. They contribute nothing except massaging the author's ego.

And a very good morning to you Pete. Are you being a Provocative Member?
