Is this a discussion forum or not? It happens here that some topics are banned from discussion, as if there are taboos that must be respected and held in place. What happens is that when someone touches upon such a topic, or looks into a particular aspect of it, some posters will claim that it is a breach of their personal space and freedom. (And probably accuse the other poster of trolling or some such.) To be sure, I am talking about topics with a long history of philosophical, political and religious discourse (like death and dying, sexuality, the meaning of life), so talking about them in what is supposedly a discussion forum, really is not a violation of a person's privacy. So: Is this a discussion forum or not?
