You either spend way too much time worrying what others think, or the people that take offense take themselves wat too seriously.

I have to admit I haven't stopped posting in all subjects. At that point what's the sense of being in here. I've been in arguments in here, but have begun to back off mostly. Just for this reason. What does it matter? Really, who cares in the end?
Honestly, some people enjoy a good debate, myself included. Problem is, with the anonymity of the internet and the rampant "internet tough guy" syndrome that accompanies it, debates all too often devolve into ******* contests. You would think that with the anonymity the internet provides, people would actually be MORE likely to admit when they're wrong or just agree to disagree, but that doesn't happen very often.

I think a lot of posters fall into a trap where they pretty much create a persona for themselves seperate of what's going on in their real life, and take wayyyy too much stock in that persona. You see plenty of posters on here, and I won't name names but you know who they are, who are the self-styled "Intellectual Enforcer" of these boards. Admitting that they are wrong or even agreeing to disagree chips away at the credibility of that persona, or so they think, so they will resort to name calling, neg rep, childish tantrums, and argue in circles about a topic for days on end to attempt to cling to that precious credibility. After all, they are here to correct people who are wrong, so how can they be wrong themselves or the person they are trying correct not be wrong?

Thanks bro. I'm gonna' get off of here and go break something. Catch you later!

Conservatives, liberals. Believers, non-believers. Rich, poor. Educated, and non-educated. All of this on a message board, for a football team. We fight and argue, try to come off as better, smarter, than other members. And my simple question is, why?

I wasn't raised this way. Am I just baffled as to why it has to be this way. Anyone want to answer me without using any of the aforementioned tactics?
Plain and simple, it is the way they were raised, the way the household acted, and believed, is the way the children act, and believe as adults, it's what their parents did, that dictates what a child does. only my opinion.

I disagree. I think that half of the people who are known for these actions would not do anything resembling what they do here in real life.

Big difference when you are a nameless person behind a keyboard.

I agree. For many posters on the internet, it's a way for them to say and do things that they've always fantasized about doing, but don't/can't in real life.

Could be right, but so many seem to be young, spoiled brats, some respond to things without even thinking it through.

I am not crying by stating the obvious regarding the diversities of the Internet. It is a simple truth that the Internet is world wide made up of people with different beliefs, ideas and thoughts. When a person types a sentence that is not grammatically correct or has spelling errors, that does not mean they are not intelligent. My instructors always told us, you are here to learn engineering. For that reason I always double checked my reports, but here on the message board I don't, because it quite frankly doesn't matter imo as too whether it is correct or not.

With that being said, what is the limit as far as personal attacks are concerned? IMO I believe that insulting a persons family is going too far, for the simple reason that the family is not known, Now remarks about the individual who is posting is something totally different especially in Smack Talk.

You are quite correct when you say that the people who go there need thicker skins.
I am not angry, just confused as too why it is necessary to attempt a person's identity. There is not a single thread in Smack where the conversations get derailed to who is who. Why can't we just forget about that stuff and stick with the topics at hand.

Well, you remember what David Duke said. In response to a question about his affiliation as the Grand Wizard of the Klan, he responded; "Well, we're all Wizards under the sheets."

Agreed....and you know who you are.
