Yeah, right on! That will make the world a better place to live in. I Know, Lets put up a white board on the site also, we can just write insults back and forth for everyone to read, and Oh yeah! , lets all leave a salt shaker next to our computers so we can salt each other's wounds when we're done. Too bad we don't have an interactive feature where we can throw knives at each others prophets..... O.K., let's not, but let's not add any fuel to the fire.

I think keeping such a tally serves no purpose but to keep wounds from healing and to prevent useful dialogue. If people concentrated more on healing, forgiveness, and finding useful ways to prevent anger from consuming themselves, we would have a good start.

No we shouldn't be complacient, but lets put our anger to good use. Anger is a powerful force that can be just as easily funneled into good deeds as it can fuel cycles of hatred. Lets not forget, but lets be productive without being hypocritical.
