Apparently not.

Yes it can. Heated discussion is just that - a discussion. that means both sides exploring and debating their views in a civil manner.... if it becomes heated then thats ok once it dosnt change from discussion into slagging.

for example: we can very clearly and civily discuss our views on religion and beliefs without disrespect to others or their beliefs - "It is my opinion that/Ibelieve in this/I dont believe in that" as opposed to "your going to hell/its a load of shit/religion is our savious and nothing else matters". then things change into worthless reading.

This is entirely correct. Might I then amend my initial statement to reflect the difference between a heated 'discussion' and a heated 'slagging match', the causes of which are the real issue for debate here.

HEY TROUSERS IS BACK

THAT SOUNDED GOOD FROM HERE

"Trouser Material's a gentleman who calls a cat a cat, even when he trips on her in the dark. Yes, Inspector LeStrade, you are quite right on this occasion - the clue is always in the signature!" "Come on, Watson, off to Coulsdon!", he directed me, with thar familiar gleam to his eyye that we were back on the trail.

... can coexist

Yes, of course! With a bit of good will and mutual respect, and the appropriate choice of words...

As for the suggestion by brownstudy that "heated discussions" be taken "outside", I haven´t a clue as to how this is supposed to work. For instance, we start off by musing in a quite general fashion about ... whatever, which musing then gains momentum and develops into some blazing discussion, what happens next? Will a message come up, stating "This discussion is too heated in nature as to be continued on this forum, all change please to the unofficial one provided for this very purpose" (which unofficial site looks very similar to this, except for the background colour and Mr Fry´s signature in the top right-hand corner... I prefer green as a background colour, of the real McCoy...)

Someone please explain it to me... I am a simpleton at times
