There seems to always be a thread going on at Search Engine Watch Forums on a heated topic such as SEMPO, SMA-NA, SPAM, Cloaking, and many other ethical debates fought about within the SEM community. One currently taking place at SEW Forums has just been closed, but it was named Is Black Hat SEO a form of Hacking? A great topic, one of which I did not participate in, due to the lack of time.
But the reason I point you to this thread is because of the last post Danny Sullivan made before closing it for the holiday weekend. The last post summarizes a collection of heated SEW threads. I'll quote Danny's post below:
