    This is a fine article DN - good writing and pushing an agenda are often mutually exclusive and I'm quite certain I'm not alone in preferring the former over the usual latter.

    Hiding behind loud comments won't fix the problem. In fact, it will most likely add to the awkward cloud already descending on the workplace.

    Approaching the individual will have a better outcome even if the individual dismisses your concerns as baseless. At least the source of the controversy will have a concrete idea that others are noticing their inappropriate behavior. I think this article contains sound advice.

    There is an obvious simple solution. When they are flirting loudly say "get a room." The simple phrase to let a couple know that their PDA is obnoxious. You don't have to be polite, they are not being polite.
