This is both an observation and a question and I am in no means trying to offend just asking an innocent question.
Do you find that when people post questions on here or any other site for that matter that they become rather judgmental of those who don't share their exact views. The name calling is the worst. I mean if all you want is someone to agree with you all the time why not post on a site where more people think like you but to call people idiots and such does nothing but people on the defense and instead of people really discussing the issue or question all you're left with are people being rude to each other. I know we all are entitled to say what we want due to "Freedom of speech" but don't people realize that just because someone doesn't agree with their point that it doesn't make them dumb, mindless or incapable of thinking? It's just a difference in opinion and could be refreshing to get other views at times

Quinn - the politic side of issues can get heated you're absolutely right. However, it can sometimes and I repeat sometimes to be hard to ignore and not take personally when you've been made to look like a fool just because you had a difference of opinion. I don't know any of you ladies personally or in RL, still being called a mindless idiot or a drone can be just as embarrassing. Sorry.
I try very hard to remove emotion from my responses, unless it's sarcasm. I even restrain from calling someone ignorant because I have no knowledge of their understanding of a subject. Ignorance is a matter of opinion (most of the time). Name-calling is unnecessary, but I see it coming from all sides here.

Politics has a tendency to get heated. I try not to take any of it personally.

No, there actually ARE some obviously dumb people around.
It is a fact of life.
It is not politically correct to say it, though.

Dumb is persisting in a thought pattern when you have been presented with evidence to the contrary.
