Actually, my point was that you aren't necessarily going to like what others have to say and it is entirely OK that they say it. What BG posted there does not violate guidelines *and is perfectly OK.*
That you don't like it is also OK. I suspect that you're conflating "civil" with "nice." The two are not synonymous, at least as regarding the site guidelines. Mocking an idea offered up is equivalent to saying "That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard," which is perfectly OK on these boards. You may take umbrage at somebody mocking an idea you like. They're allowed to mock that idea, nonetheless.
You are always welcome to ignore any other member. There is no requirement that you read posts from anybody else and certainly no requirement that you respond to any particular post.
