is it really that hard? by Colliequest is it really that hard? by Colliequest
I'm sure there's a better way to word this, but it's just not coming to me. Might edit it later on.



Just really annoys me when someone uploads a stamp or something and you've got people in the comments saying immature crap like "Geeze, you're bat*** insane", or when discussing something they keep aiming personal attacks at the other person(s), or worse yet, basing their entire argument on personal attacks.


Besides, ad hominem (attacking the person's character rather than their argument) is a logical fallacy. A discussion/debate should be made up of rational thoughts and responses, not insults.



Okay, so I realize that we all snap at others once in a while, especially in a heated discussion. But at least try, y'know? If it's getting on your nerves, take a break.

Heck, I even know that throwing insults back and forth can, in a way, be fun. Infuriating when it's done to you, but fun to throw them back.
But still, wouldn't it be so much more productive to get a real argument and contribute to a thought-provoking discussing rather than simply cause a bunch of drama?

Well, it depends. What if someone is a supporter of the Nazis for example?

I defently wont say i "hate" them i just think as a less intimating word than "hate" i would say i "dislike" a person for their falts. But, if the person is genuinely crul, and or disrespectful THEN I can hate them.

I occasionally get rude,offensive, downright putting the artist down such comments I will tend to block that person, I don't want comment wars. But is it so hard for them to not be such an *pardon my english* such an ass to someone who as any right to everyone else to not deserve such punishment? Or hard for them to not comment and walk away?

I agree with this stamp all the way :+fav:

I don't mind if people disagree with me, I only get angry if they are insulting me or cussing at me for not agreeing with them on certain topics. I prefer to get in debates with mature people who are polite and agree to disagree. Not people who act like children and get mad if you disagree with them.

That's pretty much my sentiment in debats. If you're going to disagree with me, fine, but at least be polite about it. If they don't, my response is "Okay, you're gonna play that game? Well, I'll play along with you.".
