I implore all to refrain from the ad hominem attacks (whether directed at an individual or a group).

Likewise vague aspersions and engaging in hyperbole increase tensions of a community already in a sensitive state. 

It detracts from our ability to engage in reasoned and mature discussion on real issues - and certainly ensures that we will not find solutions.
