Quantcast

When debating with people do you usually try to do it in a polite way, or do you ever personally insult the person who is dissagreeing with you?

    I never target them - I target their logic. If it's faulty, and I can prove it with one or two steps, they don't have a chance. Sometimes a funny picture does the trick to point out the irony and contradictions in their posts.

    First and foremost, I try to listen to see if I can learn something from the person. If they are wasting my time or blowing ignorant, I am direct.

    I'm usually polite but if they are extremely brainless or brain dead and really annoy me I sometimes call them a frikkin' baboon. Naww, just kidding. Or am I?

    I have never insulted anyone on SodaHead (or anywhere else, for that matter) when debating an issue. I even try to state what I perceive to be the other side of the argument and why I don't agree with it. And I've been bashed for that.

    I try to be polite unless someone makes a personal insult to me. They don't know me, don't judge me.

    It all depends, most of the time I'll just be casual but if they start to offend me, i'd be sarcastic, or laugh at them, haha.

    I just try to prove my point as best I can without trying to change their opinion. However, if they ever insult me, I could care less about it then.

    Rudness get SHs blocked. There are a number of SHs that are open minded about some issues but not others so sometimes their rude and sometimes their not.

    I'm generally a polite person, but when someone insults me first or says something really rude I can be the biggest bitch you've ever met!

    Depends on the topic. I feel no shame about insulting birthers, but if you put an actual topic up I'll discuss it rationally.
