    CHALLENGE: calling all keyboard warriors

    I was impressed by this quote from another thread...

    An astute observation, I love it! This is how we argue ... not with the facts, not with logic, but by bashing the other side, dismissing them, or demonizing them. Gay rights, Kyoto, Terry Schiavo, the NHL lockout ... doesn't matter, it's all the same.

    Ever tried having an intelligent, constructive debate about the motives of George Bush? Can't be done. Not on this site, anyway.

    Somebody wanna prove me wrong?

    Okay, I will, thanks. Didn't know internet forums were restricted to shallow thoughts, my mistake.

    Aw geez, Hogie, just when I've lost all confidence in you, you come back and say something perfect. Damn, I hate it when that happens!

    If I was a tough guy and I wasn't so scared and helpless, I'd come and beat the snot out of you because man, you annoy the piss out of me. I don't know why I haven't put you on my ignore list yet, along with the other douche bags on this site.

    It's not that you are outspoken, it's the fact that you're a dumb ass that gets to me. If you still had one or two brain cells working for you, you wouldn't vomit worthless shit every time you opened your mouth.

    God! How I wish I was a tough guy and knew some moves. I would set a whole bunch of you straight. Maybe one day, if I keep taking my vitamins...maybe one day!

    The level of discussion depends on the audience, the forum and the subject. When you're facts are countered with " STFU Noob" and then you are compared to Hitler, you might as well give up. The other problem is that the internet breeds these short, smart-assed comments that the author thinks sound witty but have no points or direction.
    You're also not helping when you pick topics like Kyoto, global warming, etc. Even "the experts" can't agree and we have all become (at least I have) that we don't trust them anymore.

    An amazing piece of generalization Wayne. I appreciate what you're saying though, and agree for the most part. The internet is a poor place for debate, simply since you don't have to consider the other persons feelings. It's like suddenly becoming FAS, and loosing the ability to rationalize cause and effect.

    I have a neighbour who's very intelligent, unfortunately for you male, but is great for these types of conversations. Come over for a beer one night.

    Hey, cool! Thanks, Kent!!! I'd love to meet your neighbour. But I'll wait until you move next to Jessica Alba.

    Thats because we debate not george bush, but the character he plays on tv. And that guys a redneck hick with one finger on the nuke button and the other one on the phrase in the bible that says 'yall are fucked'. How can you have an intelligent debate about that???
