My second most popular blog post of 2010 - and perhaps all time
This one - which dealt with issue of political correctness when discussing Islam/Muslims. The discussion over there eventually became a dialogue and I declared it closed after a while when it got stale. But it was a long thread that attracted a lot of thoughts about the sensitivities involved. This is obviously a hot-button topic, and one that will doubtless come up again in 2011.
