Monday Morning Rant: Solving The World's Problems

I correspond on another forum board, where recently almost every discussion topic has erupted into a polticized shouting match. Since this other forum is normally a quiet haven from the usual vitriol one sees on the Internet, I felt deeply saddened by the way normally intelligent, friendly people were suddenly taking things out of context and going for each other's throats. For example, a thread on "Talk Like A Pirate Day" devolved into an angry debate over what to do about piracy in Somalia. The thread was eventually locked by one of the forum moderators.
