I want to ask my colleagues if they think that immediate thread closures in this forum regarding MD vs. DO, etc., and suggesting doing a search on this beaten-to-death topic is something people agree on, approve of, and want to see happen more often. I don't want to step on anyone's toes, and want to allow people to express their opinions as freely as possible. However, these MD vs. DO threads started here seem to be evenly split between people who seem to be trolling, and others who are genuinely interested, but should be searching for past discussions to answer their questions. What do people think? Is this appropriate? Or overbearing? I'd also like to encourage people to either not respond if it seems like a troll, or at the very least, politely direct them to do a search on the subject before asking any questions are not answered after such a search. I think we can reduce the amount of flame wars, and still allow people genuinely curious about osteopathy to find out more.
