Well, I'll concede that I don't actually know you and you're right in that I couldn't possibly gauge your emotional state online. However, I can determine whether or not your responses are "aggressive" based on the the words you use and the tone that you convey. Your second comment on this thread was highly aggressive towards Shale (something that until now you've never attempted to deny) and MANY of your comments towards me seem aggressive (although I don't take things personally).

Please, Mr. High and Mighty, tell me what makes YOU an expert on public debate or on any topic for that matter. What I was taught, an opinion is neither right nor wrong.
Well, you were taught wrong because some opinions ARE in fact WRONG. For example: the opinion that 'it's okay to murder your wife if she commits adultery
' is WRONG. Legally, ethically, morally, philosophically and on just about every other level possible, that is a WRONG opinion. It doesn't become 'not wrong' anymore just because it's someone's opinion. Now granted that's only one, extreme example and in most cases you are correct. Most opinions are neither right nor wrong because they are subjective judgement's based on an individual's perspective. But that doesn't mean that all opinion's make sense, or can be justified using logic. Some opinions are just plain stupid and based on ignorance. And if/when they can't be justified by the person sharing said opinion, I usually try to expose the stupidity of it. I can't prove their opinion "wrong", but I can certainly make someone who clings to such an opinion because they're just stubborn look rather stupid!

You're wrong. I DO like it when people disagree with me. It gives me the chance to engage in exchanges like this. I never made the claim that I'm always right. Sometimes I'm wrong and other people can school me on something that I either didn't know of hadn't considered before. And I enjoy being proven wrong almost as much as I enjoy proving other people wrong, because I learn something new. I do respect other people's opinions even if I disagree with them (as long as they make some attempt to justify their opinion logically).
Nystyle709 wrote:What do you call getting emotional and aggressive? Because I curse? You think I "insult" people or attack people because I curse? My personality is quite saucy. In real life as well. I just like cursing. It's obvious we have different ideas about it. Would you prefer that I not swear? Know what love.....for YOU, I will try. It's farfetched, but I'll try.
Well for one thing, you've already admitted to having some type of disdain for Shale. So at this point its a bit disingenuous to suggest that your first reply to him was something other than an emotionally charged, aggressive attack. Just sayin...
Regarding your personality, I actually LIKE your personality just the way it is.
And no, I don't mind swearing at all. I just think when someone swears AT somebody else multiples times, it's kind of difficult for me to believe that they were NOT trying to be aggressive. But maybe my perception is off here and I'm just "over-analyzing" again.
Nystyle709 wrote:LOL, if I'm half-right about you, you are less than that about me. First of all, you are thinking way to highly of yourself. YOU, my dear...don't make anyone on here look like a fool and you keep no one in check. Not even FM. You just think you do because the majority of the forum (and that's only the people who post regularly, lol) agrees with what you say (most of the time). Contrary to what you think, you do not know everything. You don't know every fucking thing. And I really wish you would stop acting like you do.
But I don't think I know EVERYTHING. I just think I know more than most other people here on the topics that I choose to reply on, because I'm arrogant, a bit conceited and a little too smart for my own good.
But in all fairness, that's a personality fault that I freely admit to having and I usually stay out of the topics where I know I'm ignorant on.

Probably. Hey, nobody's perfect!

I wouldn't ask anything less of you.
I think you're right in that this thread is pretty much dead at this point. So you can go ahead and have the last word now. I'll see you on another thread. Ciao!
