While I appreciate everyone trying to maintain a courteous discourse on this topic and expressing their concern for the well-being of the forum and community here, this thread has been going on quite long enough given the guidelines for the site:

In addition to the above, I will also note that the issues presented here have been overtaken by events, so further debate on this is not required.
I'll be locking this thread. Any issues can be directed to me via PM.
