It’s happend in three different forums, on three different topics.
(and some stupid schmuck will say ‘well maybe the common point is you!’ and to that person I say: Fuck you!)
It’s not me. Two folks can be completely right, and one will take an affront because HE’S right, therefore you must be WRONG! I swear this is how the crusades started.
Person A says something
Person B says ‘well, not really, I’ve seen this personally.’
Person A disagrees with a thinly veiled jab at person B’s manhood.
Person B sends another light salvo in reply.
Person A starts claiming Person B must be incorrect, otherwise they wouldn’t be resorting to ad hominim attacks.
Jesus folks, I’m not going to throw a 400 page PDF proving I know a topic of conversation before starting a response that says ‘my personal experience is different’.
At one point, I think I’ll concede a little ground with an ‘I agree, i’ve experienced similar’
Only to get the response “Well that’s cuz yer a mouthbreather, perhaps you should leave it to the more experienced.”
FUCK A DUCK!
Here: EVERY SINGLE THREAD ON A FORUM IS NOT FIRTLE GROUND TO KILL YOUR OPPONENT!
Here’s a hint: If you’re a dickhead enough, eventually people GO AWAY, how much fun is it to debate alone?
OH, and freeking let me know when the gauntlet is thrown and we SWITCH to the fucking Lincoln-Douglas rules of debate. I’ll switch gears and be MUCH more careful of how I play my debate cards.
I also really need to learn the debate skill where I come up with 8 things, the other person ignores 7 and says ‘I don’t think so’, I think come up with another 8 well reasoned items, and they say ‘I don’t think so’, repeat.
By the time I’m done, I’ve got 64 valid statements on the table and they’ve got ‘that makes no sence.’
GAAAH! I need to learn to walk away before getting involved in these things in the first place.
