Ugh! Really?

Just because I stopped responding to you doesn't mean you "won" the debate. It means you are too insipid to respond to anymore.


Ever had this happen?

You are attempting to have an intelligent discussion and get called names or told you are being influenced by some random propogandist (Rush Linbaugh or James Carville, insert any name here).

Then when you stop responding the attacks get really ugly with a smug, "I am right because you're not responding anymore"!

What gets my goat is when somebody says something insulting and you ask for them to elaborate because it made no sense then they don't respond back at all.

Or when you want to make sure what they meant and then they tell you you're too stupid to get it?!

WTF?

I don't argue with them. If they start calling me names I inform them I don't care to discuss things with a two year old. If they want to discuss it and not call me names I'm game.

Or when you are perfectly calm and they will always reply with "Calm down". As if disagreeing with them makes you irrationally psychotic

ugg, I have. I sometimes just say things like "whatever, this is me attempting the last word, not to have the last word but to get the point across that I think you want the last word and anything you say after this, is just proof" sometimes it shuts them up.. other times I get called names. a girl just can't have a non cm approved opinion these days :P

I stop taking people seriously once they start thowing out insults. One can be honest and polite at the same time. I find rudeness and insults to be childish and when it comes to childishness, it's not worth it for me.
