[design] discussion possibilities

it seems to me there are several, if not many, possibilities for discussion topics on this list:

architects/designers talking about architecture/design (in the broadest sense)
architects/designers talking about other things
non-architects/designers talking about architecture/design (always interesting)

discussion on this list has never been limited to buildings/landscapes, and that's been part of its uniqueness and interest.

i have never considered the 'flame' as anything but a natural part of discussion, and no one (until recently) has ever been censured or censored on this list for heated discussion or commentary.
