Merely exchanging ideas is really boring. Sports is ABOUT passion. Let people play.
That's your opinion, but it's misguided. I love heated debates, you're right that they're great and really bring out the passion in people. However, we draw the line when things turn personal, debates go in circles, or other negative actions occur. Sometimes, it's better to slightly prematurely close a thread than let it go too long and let things get out of hand. A lot of times, you can see a thread is going downhill and it's best to stop it.
