You wrote,[...fundamental concern...].
The next concern is about defamation and humiliation. Dr. Hsiung has a strict policy concerning defamation directed to a particular poster. Posters could experiance deep humiliation from posts that have defaming statements about a person here. In the post in question that I have used as an example, if I was "linkage", I would feel deep humiliation from the names used by the other poster directed to "linkage".
Dr. Hsiung has written many things that have the potential for people to think that he wants to protect posters from emotional and psychological harm by enforcing his code of posting. I feel that IMO, that my proposal will further that goal. I would feel much more comfortable if there was a note that the post was not endorsed by the forum. This could be "please be..." or a "rephrase" or what I am proposing as a new way to address these type of posts.
