Promoting Balance

I think a major potential issue for this site is going to be bias - in fact, quickly after opening in private beta form somewhat ranting questions pushing towards a bias were posted.

As such, I think we need to make it clear that as well as discouraging opinionated questions and answers, we try to keep them fairly balanced and discourage bias wherever possible.

We've made a great start to this, let's keep it going by making it official.

    It is always better for a question to be stated in a neutral manner. So, "What are the advantages and disadvantages of first past the post?" rather than "First past the post sucks. Is there any reason at all to consider using it?"
