Re: Naruto 643
I guess this all sparks from a differences of opinion concerning confrontation. Some people feed on it and the more intense it gets the more their ego feeds off it. Its like a rapist getting it on with a girl against her will. The more she struggles the more it excites him thus making him want to get more intense. As a result people slowly lose focus on being civil and resort to just being ever more mean spirited. The meaner the discourse gets the more egos are bruised thus fueling conflicts that go on for dozens of pages with what was once a single debate becoming a several person clusterfuck of posts that eventually just seems to stretch on endlessly until someone decides to just stop posting altogether. Normally a mod would try to tone down the debate but with no mods interested in doing so it just ends up becoming one endless fight after the next. That is why some people no doubt have probably left. When you are holding a conversation one post then suddenly its replaced with an endless wall of text of people bitching endlessly about an issue it only serves to convince people that civil discourse is just not possible. Civility is always important in all things whether you are on the job, amongst friends, or even simply amongst strangers. When you show a lack of it you only end up sounding like a total brute hence why people will not wish to talk with you. If you want debate without bloodshed its best to remember to be civil. If you feel your emotions are getting overwhelmed then step away from the computer. The most important thing is not to let yourself get too warped by your emotions that you lose all sense of reason. That is when you truly become little more then a pain in the neck to everyone which thus leads to your eventual ban.
