I think I've seen several posts on this ongoing debacle.

I keep wondering if there is anything we can do to either elevate the discussion of the matter or more thoroughly stamp the discussions out like the little dumpster fires they tend to be, which naturally threaten to become towering infernos.

I debate whether refusing to comment at all and simply flagging them is the least worst thing I can do in a world that seems to have no constructive path forward on such topics. But that also strikes me as making the topic unspeakable, a practice known to deepen moral problems, not resolve them.
