No, that offers no explanation to me why this thread is intolerant. The first 4 anonymous replies (the ones I mentioned earlier) have a combined rep of 99 at the time of this writing. At the time of this writing, the other anonymous replies have a combined rep of 46. All 13 anonymous replies have a positive rep. Your 7 nodes have a combined rep of -17 (still, 2 of them have a positive rep).

There's a lively discussion here, lots of arguments, lots of appreciation for the arguments themselves, and even though many people disagree with you (and artist and zengargoyle and others), they still value the way you present your arguments.
In an intolerant website, there might be a flame-war, much more -- rep, or maybe the whole thread would be ignored. It isn't, obviously. These monks are civilized people, -- when the disagree, ++ when they agree (or disagree but appreciate efforts and arguments). And as far as I've seen, seldom with a grudge.
