Do you deserve to be called names...

just because your opinion differs from others?

I ask this after following a post for a while now and can't understand why having an opinion on a topic makes you a moron, or a racist, or any other derogatory word you can think of to call another person.

 I think being a racist makes you a racist. And being a moron makes you a moron. But I wouldn't call anyone either of those things because it doesn't further the conversation at all.

I agree with you. I HATE how people are ignorant because they don't do what someone else thinks is right.

I can't tell you how many times I've been called that cause I don't BFed.

I stop letting words effect me along time ago, that's why I have a sense of humor.

No one is perfect, its only human not to be perfect! If your perfect your a robot!

What's wrong in learning day by day, you can't know everything.

 Pointing out misinformation is not bullying. Fyi... there's a big difference.

Agreed. However, they shouldn't be used to defend your position on a topic because you can think of nothing else to say, or just generally don't agree with a statement.

 I agree with you there. Personal attacks are unnecessary and do not add to the validity of an argument. That's why I don't use them.

I think so if it's being used with no reasoning behind it, sheerly for a difference of opinion.
