Today there was a highly active question posted about an individual facing HR consequences at work due to a ill advised racial / gender remark made in response to another coworker. One of the answers to the question was this, that I felt was reasonable, but apparently many others in the community did not.
Ignoring the unrelated comments on the answer that caused the answer to be locked, I agree with the message of the person who answered, namely to avoid inflammatory personal attacks , as such tactics are non productive and disruptive in a professional workplace. I feel the answer can be refined a bit such as softening the tone while not changing the meaning of the OP's answer, which I believe is correct along with several others such as that from Kilsi or Flexi or Mario.
In cases in which a good answer suffers from distracting comments, can we be less aggressive in locking the question to allow others who may want to comment with the aim of improving the usefulness of such a question?
Edit in response to answers
Reading through the responses so far, it was most certainly not my intention to give people with malicious motives a platform to spout derogatory and offensive language against what may be legitimate experiences of discrimination. My intent to asking this question was to see if there could be a way to separate the problematic comments from constructive comments without preventing comments altogether
