Yeah I agree with most of the main post except that part. I think many of the CR forums and users are pretty friendly. Sure, there is always some heated debate about a controversial topic but in general people tend to be quite respectful. Meaning compared with other forums *coughigncough* (Where most comments sound like they just escaped from a Mein Kampf convention) this is paradise!

I find it very annoying but oddly entertaining at the same time to see two or more people on a forum arguing like children. As enjoyable as it is to read, I do think it's stupid and very unnecessary to spam the forums with their bull. If you have issues then fight about it on your pages not on a forum. Some people just aren't meant to be on forums

I think it's usually just people who are incapable of tolerating or entertaining opposing opinions. They think everyone is out to get them and don't know how to debate in a civilized way. If someone presents an opposing opinion and they feel threatened by the evidence, they lash out. Soon, they are throwing words around too strongly and it turns into a personal attack, then it gets ugly and turns from a debate into an argument.

I prefer to debate but a good argument can be fun now and then. I don't tend to look for them, you just get those idiots sometimes.

That explains so much.

To be honest, I'm sure I've veered into what some people may consider a pointless argument. I try to remain as level-headed as possible, but sometimes things get to me. Not in a glorious fashion, like cursing someone out, but I may start to sound snooty or condescending. It happens online and irl. If it does happen, I am grateful to anyone who points it out.

Straight-up flaming arguments are always pointless, but sometimes people's humanity just gets the better of them. There's nothing wrong with that. If we were all completely rational beings 24/7, the world would be a much different place.
