Twilight, maybe? Although the arguments seem to be dying down now...

[edit] And by that I mean debating its merits, rather than refraining from mentioning it at all, which would just be silly.

Two other hot topics:

Phone calls and whether it's acceptable or not to call back hang-up numbers.

A woman changing her last name or not upon marriage.

Wind chimes (although we haven't heard much about that one lately)

Is it ok to feed/ask your neighbor not to feed wild animals (deer, raccoons, etc)

ETA - Is it ever ok to "steal" an animal.

Did we mention: Ringing Phone/Door?  Obligated to answer or ok to ignore?

Really? I've never seen a heated thread about this- usually people agree that it's OK to ignore, don't they?

I don't, either. ???

Y'all, remember that a "Hot Topic" is what was described a page or so back.  Not just something that's debated.  Heck, if we all agree with each other on everything, it's a dull board!  So, a healthy debate does not a "Hot Topic" make. :)

Anything, and I mean *anything* to do with where it is/is not ok to change babies.

I believe EVERYONE agreed it wasn't okay to change babies on the pattern books at the fabric store.

Heh, can we call that one the exception that proves the rule?

I disagree.  How dare you keep me from my right to infect pattern books with poop? You have no right to tell me that I can't change my (hypothetical) baby there.

It usually comes up in telemarketer/political/otherwise unwanted phone call threads.  I've seen at least one poster insist in each that they can't/won't get Caller ID, but that they also must answer each incoming call because they don't want to miss an emergency.

Wind chimes?  I've been here a loooong time and didn't know that.

----------------->heading to the search function b/c I can't possibly understand how wind chimes can be heated.

Of course it can - it's the wind chimes fans vs. the ones who think they're too noisy.
