We have other groups for such issues. If you miss such discussions there
are plenty to join in on elsewhere. If this forum widens to such topics,
then it wouldn't be about design then would it. Even though, as a
designer, I eat and sleep we don't find discussing pillows and
peanutbutter appropriate, do we? Now if this were a design firm
being assailled then I might reconsider my line of reasoning. If the
religious right started posting here would that still be appropriate for
you or does this posting just agree with your politics?

Sory to be harsh but this area won't be useful if it is freeform chatter
amongst design people.
