Aka, -get a real argument, plz- by Colliequest Aka, -get a real argument, plz- by Colliequest
People will be people, but it just gets on my nerves when I'm clicking through my deviations inbox and I come across a stamp that says something like "if you don't agree with me, you're a jerk".
(To think they were stupid enough to actually disagree with you! My! Because people shouldn't think for themselves. They just need to listen to you as you think for yourself--amirite?)

First of all, I find this very rude and inconsiderate.

Second of all, this is a logical fallacy called "ad hominem". In other words, attacking the person instead of the argument. It does nothing to support your case, and makes you look just jerk-ish as the people you're dissing.

Third, even if actual, even sound, arguments are provided in the description, people are MUCH more likely to consider your view when you're not being super rude about it. If your goal is for them to come to agree with you, why not do it in a pleasant, or at least halfway pleasant, manner?

Nowadays, people will still bitch at you for expressing your side of the argument politely.

Ergo why at least some thought should be put into how said arguments are worded. It's never a good idea to wantonly raeg unless you want to attract trolls and drive away the people you are trying to reach. (Also a compelling argument for getting some sleep first before putting your fingers to the keyboard. :iconderpplz:)

I find those type people conceited and very much assholes. I ran into a DeviantArt user and I said something that she didn't like and she called me a moron for being wrong because whatever she says is always right. It was really uncalled for and I got in a heated fight with her, seriously, no one has to agree with one opinion everyone has different views of things. When I see people act like that it makes me sick and I get disgusted by that attitude.

Truth. 

I hate how if you don't agree with someone, they throw a big baby fit because they want to pretty much "customize" you into what THEY want. They need to learn that's not how it works. People are all different and think differently and usually are not easily swayed. People's opinions are embedded into their heads like tree roots in the ground; they aren't going anywhere.

I've ran into so many like that who think their opinions are the only right choice and your opinions are "worthless" (yes, i had someone say that to me). No one can "agree to disagree" anymore and accept someone thinks differently. Sure, I get irked when someone doesn't have the same opinion as I do and I'll put my opinion in (in a mature way of course) but if neither of us will change then I'll let it go accepting it. But i lose respect if that other person can't accept mine and even sink low to try to downgrade me. Makes you want to slap some sense into them to know how to learn acceptance, or least to not insult someone.
