True or False?

True or False

When having a debate with someone on CM, the 1st person to stop stating facts and start using personal attacks and put downs is the loser?

Does using personal attacks and put downs during a debate make that person look like they are uneducated about the topic at hand? Will you continue debating with someone that begins verbally attacking you?

  • I agree and my name is Sabrina as well :) I was told earlier today that I am stupid and cowardly because I told a woman that I would not debate with her because she stopped stating facts and began calling me names. I won't deal with people who act like that, period.

  • I agree. However around here the winner is usually the one who gets the last word. At least that's how most people act. Don't take it personally or it will drive you nuts.
