I think there is something about keyboards that can bring out somethings that you never see in public. JMOHO on this one!
I agree, but again - neither of us want to clutter up each others time at an event with subjects we know we don't agree on. I would think if we were to attend a public meeting on the necessity and safety of LPCs, we might open up a bit more. Online also gives us a few minutes to consider and edit our posts whereas in person you often are enticed to speak before thinking. Of course, sometimes we post without thinking too!
