David Klinghoffer at EN&V sustains a higher level of discourse in a post on Richard Dawkins entitled, Richard Dawkins, Worthless Bully. Some excerpts:

"What's really contemptible about Dawkins's article…"

"Nothing could be more shoddy and dishonest…"

"Dawkins showed his own blind cowardice in his most recent book…"

"The man is just a pathetic and worthless bully, nothing more."

Then we have the comment policy:
... In order to maintain a higher level of discourse, we will not publish comments that use foul language, ad hominem attacks, threats, or are otherwise uncivil.

My emphasis.

Doesn't apply to OPs, or to Klinghoffer, apparently.
