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? :/

Try telling that to this douche in my signature. Most rude person ever, and he acts like a brick wall.

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