Um... the only thing I have seen that was ugly was the people screaming for the topic to be discontinued, which I found profoundly rude. And if you believe that no new information or points have been raised, you haven't been reading closely. I haven't seen a single ad hominem attack or fighting, although we are having a very impassioned discussion.
Since even Hotmail will allow you to filter on keywords to remove unwanted topics from your inbox, and so does Gmail and Outlook and Thunderbird etc., instead of calling for a robust discussion to end, perhaps you could just set up a text filter or two. Plenty of us here can instruct on how to do this, or consult these articles:
