Of course, giving out the reasons behind your opinions is indeed very useful, as you said, which is also what I tried to do with the extra three paragraphs. To further clarify, I was trying to point out why ‘the poster lacking compassion’ is not a rather sound argument because the absurd result that follows: one’d either lack compassion or that he/she must say yes to the proposal.
I feel people are a little carried away while we are on this subject: there are valid points of discussion on either side which I won’t reiterate again; however, questioning other poster’s integrity seem a little excessive, at least to me. This is what I was hoping people could stand back from. I’m all for constructive discussions. (and a person being lack of compassion and evil doesn’t even make his/her opinions inherently wrong anyway.)
