On a personal level I think there is something about respecting the individual, who has a right to be able to say what they think, but also the aspirations and the integrity of any debate itself.

In a professional context, if I’m moderating or managing a community debate I normally ensure the terms of participation are pretty clear from the outset. The web is a pretty big place – if you can’t respect each other, go do it somewhere else. From an organisational perspective there is usually pretty strict guidance on what we will, and won’t put up with.
