Do you ever feel like an argument on the internet has gone on for too long?

Lately me and another user have been having a back and forth argument on one of the topics in the forums here, and despite everything, they just misinterpret things and skew them as to what they want to hear as a way to justify their own ends, and it just makes them look stubborn. Sure the simple solution is to just ignore them, block them, and move on, but at the same time, leaving them unchecked wouldn't be a wise move either.

People are free to have opinions on the internet sure, but what if it's an opinion that is just flawed and politically incorrect? I know I have no right to tell them to stop, I'm not a forum police, but someone has to stand up and draw the line lest it gets out of control.

What about you guys? What do you do in a situation like this?

No, I typically win my arguments. So it's hard to relate.

Then do not continue to engage. I would advise you to not continue in such debates, and even leave General Discussion of these forums. "Leaving them unchecked"? That is laughable. What good would come of you, a voice on the internet, to entertain their follies and their poor arguments, by keeping them "in check"?

Block them and move on. Politely decline anything more. I doubt they are going to harm anyone by being egregiously stupid on an internet forum.

Well, if the person is stupid enough, I do not think they will acknowledge it either way.

True, sometimes I just remember that they're just one person, and eventually they'll be muted out by the thousands of other voices.

I've already blocked them a while ago, it's just whenever I log off that I still see their stupid comments.

Just get over it and focus more on improving yourself instead of improving others.

I stop replying to people if I have nothing more worth-while to say or if my words just won't reach them. My time is better spent elsewhere, if not doing something productive for myself, then at least enjoying myself more instead.

If you enjoy conflict and frustrating yourself, you can keep doing what you're doing though.

Don't have many sites I go to anymore. Mostly the sites for bikers. I don't bother arguing with most people, not worth the time and effort I have blocked many people that just seem to only want to argue with the world and troll someone. Nice thing about some sites, when you block someone, they will show up as posting. But, their what they posted doesn't show, just says "You have blocked "so and so" click here to see the post.

"Block them and move on. Politely decline anything more. I doubt they are going to harm anyone by being egregiously stupid on an internet forum."

Is there a way to actively block someone on CR?

There is, but you need Google Chrome for it.
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cr-queue0/onkdfchaiebkbhlbcdgbemkblolppign

It'll hide the blocked user's posts, but you can still see them when someone else quotes them though, and when you're logged off too

This has happened to me too many times.

Sometimes, you have to let go:

Know your limits, know that there's no obligation to continually argue, and recognize that trying to play "pillar of truth" is, more or less, a pipe dream. Well, I suppose I can joke that your charisma level is far, far too low to pull it off.
