Dec 8 '15 at 10:08 comment added 201044 So if you want these websites to avoid endless debates that are a bad learning environment and waste time and energy and money you should have rules to curtail any type what seems to be of patronizing behavior by various user editors and don't advertise these sites to 'anybody' on the internet. As many user editors have complained about the quality of received questions. I suggest a complaint system for user editors that actually does something. I know various statements can be tagged as unhelpful or non-constructive or abusive , but that doesn't seem to stop condescending behavior.
Dec 8 '15 at 10:00 comment added 201044 One major flaw with these websites is they are not question and answer sites , more like question and FINAL answer sites. If a question is deemed 'acceptable' it is given a great final answer that is supposed to be the final word on the subject , unless some other user gives their final answer. And there is not supposed to be any debate on the answers. If a user editor says their answer in a way that seems patronizing the question will respond, and the user editor will see this as a challenge meriting more lack of diplomacy. The questioner will respond to that and you get an endless debate.

Nov 14 '14 at 3:31 comment added user128932 Not all writers are 'stoic philosophers'. Diplomacy should be the default or assumed tactic when communicating. Wasn't Wittgenstein extremely emotional or 'passionate' as they say when he analysed or argued about a problem. Kurt Godel , that great logician got very paranoid and starved himself. Cantor the mathematician had a break down. Many intellectuals are high strung..
Nov 2 '14 at 19:03 comment added user9166 If it helps, also note that not all of any given respondent's emotional reaction is at you personally. My problem is with insisting upon dichotomy on certain subjects, over dualism or anything more subtle, and making unnecessary dichotomy an essential part of the question. Once you find a given 'deep' philosophical position detrimental to your world, you will see it over and over again. It is hard to answer the fifty-sixth time as though it were the first.
Oct 29 '14 at 14:21 comment added virmaior @user128932 it was news to me that it has some religious bias. I thought the "I refuse to answer" your question thing was bizarre. There's no point in saying things like that. When I refuse to answer questions... I don't post answers to them.
Oct 27 '14 at 10:04 comment added user128932 Thank you for your consideration. Jobermark did imply my question had a religious bias , when that is not true. Does the 'Mary's Room' thought experiment have a religious bias? It is just about 'qualia' and if they exist? I know nobody is trying to insult me although some have called some of my questions useless or something to that effect. I do suggest more diplomacy at reviewing other peoples questions. Regarding 'making my time here miserable' well I have gotten a few positive reviews and that is certainly encouraging..
