As a former short term Moderator, as long as you stick to cricket discussion, even if emotional, according to the guidelines set down by the site owner, it is totally acceptable to have passionate debates on topic.
Abusive, racist, sexist, misogynistic and trolling comments are unacceptable though. Also, some discussions can tend to drift off topic.
You and Paddles are probably similar in the way you post.
You both bring a lot of cricket content, knowledge and strident opinions to the forum, which is welcome.
