As for the other 'debate'

We are a cricket site. Debate the cricket by all means.

'Snide' and 'Derogatory' posts about the cricket environment can usually be dealt with on site by just referring to the actual facts.

Other posts can be designed to provoke posters and are not related to the cricket environment but have that objective only. Should they be referred than they will probably go or be 'adapted' and in some cases when it is regular or constant I may step in unilaterally.

I'm happy for an anti 'derogatory' debate about cricket situations to be discussed. Sometimes the 'snideness' gets too personal and then the debate will have to go off site if people can't control themselves.

Discuss a topic and stay on it and there is no real problem disagreements about how things are seen are pretty much inevitable . But discuss each other and nothing else and we may see things moving to PM as in this case.

Grockles is not some kind of internet etiquette debate forum, especially if the agenda is to use that topic to further provoke people who are here to talk about cricket.

I'm the arbiter and if you can't sort it out then I will do it for you ladies and gentlemen.
