"When you invite people to your home, you try to manage, and streamline their conversation?"
Uhm, yeah, I certainly may, depending on what they're talking about.
Just because someone is a guest in my home doesn't mean that they have unfettered liberty to say or do anything that they want.
I'm pretty confident that the people I choose as my friends are cognizant of, and respect, that, just as I try to when I'm in their homes.
