Personally, I don't think a ban is in order. At least not yet. Our 
disagreements shouldn't be resolved with bans... All that does is build 
a clique. What I think does need to stop is the name calling. If that 
happens, then I think everyone should be welcome. If it doesn't, then a 
ban is appropriate. We should be able to act like adults, myself 
included. For my part in today's heated exchange, I want to apologize.
