Have Your Say
Members of this lively group discuss a wide range of topics, ranging from politics, world events, science, humanities and religion.... Our rules maintain respect for others opinions, although challenging discussion is encouraged. Each participant has an opportunity to speak without interruption, and may express any discomfort about others opinions.
