Debate without the Sticks and Stones

Post by Guest on Thu Mar 03, 2011 1:08 pm

One thing that is making this forum so pleasant to be in, is the lack of name calling etc. I know there are times when you read a post that you totally disagree with and your first reaction is to put your hands round their throat and throttle them for being so stupid. But they are not being stupid are they, they are seeing things from a different experience. (Not talking about trolls of course, they are there to be throttled, but thankfully so far we have none cheers ). I think you find out a lot more about what people think and why and it is more likely to change your view if they debate intelligently. Bit like the progress from men hitting women over the head with a club and dragging them away to boys chatting up girls today (well in some cases its progress!). So what does everyone else think? Have you had your views changed by someone keeping their temper and explaining or do you miss the odd rant?

It makes it much more enjoyable, without the bad language and personal insults! sunny

I've only been called a "Racist" once since being here and that was by another Mod! Sad

Not having the ability to debate without the foul language and insults, only shows a lack of intelligence, so just makes the poster look stupid anyway! Twisted Evil

I personally think that a well-placed swear word in life can be hilarious but mainly when reading prose, which basically is what a good, well-thought post should be, I am more likely to be swayed by clever metaphors or similes.

More and more bloggers today use foul language and badly thought out ideas, maybe this site can foster the next generation of bloggers eh, posting clever witty debates backed up with good research from many informative sources.

Oh dear! Hopefully that is now resolved and will not happen again. I agree, ranting might vent for a little while but afterwards you feel really silly!

I agree Mr Doodles, personally I hate the swearing and abuse especially the use of the 'c' word Evil or Very Mad

Once you resort to calling someone names and swearing at them you've lost all credibility and hence the discussion.

I've had my opinions changed here and on ADS by posters who take the time and trouble not to just voice their opinions but back them up with reasoned argument. Eilzel is particularly good at this I love you xxx

With an elder daughter who is a Vicar, I better not agree with that, whatever the provocation.

I know SM, there really is no need to be abusive but if you look around the internet there is simply tons of it everywhere.

We should enjoy our little idyllic playground eh?

I am sure that after the abuse people do suffer on the internet this site will grow and grow because there are lots of us out there who are fed up of personal abuse on unregulated sites.

It's not that we have fun police because we do have a lot of fun here Very Happy
