At The Workplace we often get issues where people need to deal with issues that are controversial or the issues are sensitive to certain people. These questions often result in storms of comments that are little more than opinion sharing, and arguments often about a tangential issue, or the goal of the question itself. These goals are usually not illegal or immoral but rather there are camps of people who believe that no one should want to achieve them because of personal opinions.
We would like to attempt to preempt some of these comment storms with a post notice that, when combined with moderation, we believe will help reduce the amount of vitriol and comment chatter in general for these types of questions:
This question deals with a topic about which many people have strong opinions. We respectfully ask that answers keep their focus on the question, and that those answering refrain from sharing personal opinions unless relevant to answering the question. And as always, please remember to Be Nice
