That's what we use the Rant Room for.

We kinda know right away with certain threads that they will end up in there but we do try to give the benefit of doubt, for a time. Which lets other members have their say on the subject and sometimes a thread made with the intent of causing offense can be turned around by the members replies and in doing so, becomes a good topic for discussion. (that's quite rare, but it does sometimes happen)
Also, If we move threads into RR too quickly the shout of 'Censorship' goes out.
