I agree with you that we should write respectfully. Words that anger do not foster communication but instead tend to stop communication. That's not the objective.
This is one of, if not one of the most passionate topics I know of not only in parenting but in all topics. It has a way of creeping up on you and as you learn more, it only becomes more disturbing to the point that it can control our reason and logic for a while at least. That means that we will often post things in superlatives and things that are harsh. I've been there. There were things that I would have liked to post that would have melted computer screens across the globe. In this passionate time of our lives, it can be hard to recognize what can be offensive when we re-read our own writings. It makes so much sense to us that we can't see how it could possibly not make sense to everyone else. I hope everyone will go back and re-read what they have written in this frame of mind.
However, I hope that you will realize too, that everyone who has posted here does not visit this forum every day and may not read your post for several days. 24 Hours is a little short for complete compliance with you request. I hope you are flexible in this matter.
