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?

Assertive communication: the act of communicating your own opinions on a way that respects the people involved, and had been scientifically improved to work better that passive and aggressive communication.

God, I so agree! Ironicly, I just had a situation like that. The person I was talking with suddendly put words into my mouth of how 'Mean and uncaring and stupid' I was, and that I called her 'a little bitch' and a whole bunch of other stuff I never said. Along with calling me a hooker...Dafuq? :/

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.

I know! Nobody has to be a jerk when stating something or having a debate. Especially on the internet some people use it as an 'excuse' to be rude or degrade somebody.

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.".

Yes, it is hard. It's so hard to be civil when people make you want to lose faith in humanity. I feel a strong need to be blunt, to swear angrily at people who are obviously wrong, and angst over how stupidity will be the death of us all.

Seriously, I feel this way so many times.

Well, I can understand where you're coming from, kinda.
I think there are times when it's not worth it to continue the discussion; I think this is the case usually when neither person will get anything positive out of it.

I hate people like that. People are so rude and disrespectful and then they're like " Oh it's the internet, don't post shit if you don't want to get offended blah blah blahhhh." So that's their excuse for being uncivil? SMH.

Another thing that bothers me on this site when someone states their opinion and someone has to reply and be like "NAW JUST NAW!!11oneone." I don't like certain opinions, but I don't attack people for having them.

I sometimes title my stamps insults like "morons" when the subjects of said stamps are acting like morons, but that's about the extent of my insults.
With that being said I fully expect discussions in the comments sections to be civil; especially among other users.

Agreed 100%. I had this one guy (who disagreed with me on one of my stamps) said if I didn't like the internet then I shouldn't go on it. I never said I didn't like the internet in my stamp - I just said that I don't like the idea of the MLP characters being sexualised and I explained my reasons in a mature manner.

In response I said to him that if he doesn't like my stamp, then he shouldn't be commenting on stamps he hates.

People like that drive me up the wall. They should at least some develop manners and not attack people for their beliefs :\

Whats funny is in a heated debate of any topic and both people are insulting eachother and eventually they loose track of the point and tell each other like some hypocrite that their arguments are invalid because they are insulting.
