If you started a topic and it was a major battleground for different opinions do you stay and fight or retreat and go somewhere else you know that are defeated? war is war even if it doesn't requires your arms to fight just words, and basically that is how war started anyway. Forum war only happen when a topic became a debate.It started from a person's point of view of something then another changes his/her view and add his/her own opinion and other people will choose who is right and battle along side with that person.

Arm and Arm using arms is for weakling that they think weapons solve anything.The real battle ground is on a debate room where we can be enemies inside,but friends when were not arguing. I don't think opinions matter to people. If you were into a crash you won't fight the person who crashed into you you will have to sue him/her for your rights.

Hmm, it's best when both sides are willing to listen and take in the other's argument (rather than a pointless over passionate argument - which I am guilty of from time to time).

On another note, I recently found out about 'Godwin's Law', and thought it was quite amusing. I feel stupid for not knowing of it earlier.
"Godwin's Law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies) is an adage formulated by Mike Godwin in 1990. The law states: "As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.". References to Godwin's Law often actually refer to a corollary of it which determines that the person who first makes an unwarranted reference to Nazi Germany or Hitler in an argument loses that argument automatically."

Anyway, if I still strongly believe in my own point I'd be happy to continue, I'm not all that mature so I can't do the 'mature' thing and leave quietly even when it turns to insults. I'm one of those stubborn people, but at least I know to admit defeat, and that I'm not all that informed on most of the subjects (unlike a lot of people who try to keep up the whole "look at me I know all there is on this issue" thing)

I just don't like a debate that will resort to name callings at the end. That is not necessary.
Or putting words on someone's mouth or being a mind reader all of a sudden.
There are times people should also know their limit. Just because there's a thread or a new thread in the Extended Discussion, it seems like people "has to post" in it. You don't know everything.


I'm still cute though. >.^

I'll usually back up my opinion, though I gave up getting into huge fights over disagreements though. It's either walk away or just calmly discuss.

It's not even worth attention.

I usually only express my opinions when I am decently informed about the subject, and even then the only reason I bother to say anything is because I hope that someone will show me that I'm wrong or expose me to new information, so that I can add onto or reform my current opinion. I don't have to face "defeat" because my goal is not to win and prove that I'm better, but to understand a different point of view and expose others to my normally uncommon opinions, so that hopefully I and the person I'm discussing with can grow a little.

An exchange of ideas doesn't have to be a "war" or a negative conflict.

a debate is okay, as long as each side hear and gives respect to one another's opinions.
