We should be talking about these things. Of course things will get out of line but closing the topic won't make it go away. Another one will take its place. I like how I hear opinions on my country from people who never lived here, just like how they like to hear about their country from someone who never visited there. Its a great way to connect and understand each other. There will be idiots and assholes but thats where a mod comes in and edits/deletes their post rather than closing the whole topic and say something like "please rephrase that into a respectable post".
