‚ÄčIt is not hard to keep discussions involving people relevant to the issues
at hand, and discuss people in context of their role or influence in events
and decision making, and these discussions are good to have.

Starting threads pointedly about individuals, with discussions about the
issues only tangential to the point of the attack on the individual is a
very different thing, one that I think most recognize when they see this,
as well as other threads that are coatracks and sea lioning.[0][1] For
every positive thread we're generating, we're producing at least two other
toxic threads. And we're tolerating it. We have to stop.
