How do you get from site owners wanting to maintain a certain quality of discussion to "I take issue with people chiming in with their opinions". That's a heck of a leap.
If that's the impression you get then your impression is clearly inaccurate.
Why people can't fathom that site owners want to present their website in a specific manner, and maintain a certain level of discourse is beyond me. That you think a particular topic or language is acceptable has no bearing on what the site owners feel is acceptable.
I think the tone of this post speaks directly to why I believe that. It's a site discussion forum, for goodness sake. I take that to mean that, despite the site owners' philosophy, opinions on the site should be encouraged. So I think you should keep that in mind instead of rudely going after people for opining whether they agree with the philosophy or not.
