Coffee? I must've missed something. I think kids in bathrooms of the opposite gender, Ettiquette about parties and/or weddings, politics and religion would be on the list if I made it.

I think the question of whether a parent is overprotective vs. neglectful is a big one. Variations of this include letting your kid walk places, peanut free schools, sending your child out to play.

Another flash point is teachers.

Blah. Used to be more controversial before the mass banning.

Now I would add Snowflakes to your list.

And there's the whole "how old is too old for a stroller" debates.

Oh, it's been a while since we've had a good "anyone who doesn't return their shopping cart to the store is a horrible person" thread too.

Personal advice wanted about family member/friend situations. The asker usually gets flamed like a hotdog in a weenie roast!

I can't see where this thread is going to go anywhere good. Usually, these threads tend to veer into let's cut down other people who don't agree with me or are different on the DIS. I just don't think it's a good idea. Haven't even finished with page 1, and it's started.
