Ideally that's what every thread on the forum is supposed to be like.

I can't stress this point enough:

If you are passionate about a topic and feel like you have to comment on something that you disagree with, state your case without name calling and bashing and then move on.

dramaqueen likes this.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I remember this forum being a lot more civil. Sure, everyone was a nazi when it came to tank size, but at least everyone was friendly and brought up reputable links.

And they didn't drag arguments out to other threads.
dramaqueen and Romad like this.

I am a male sapient being.

The problem also lies in immature people who think they can contribute but arent mature enough (pardon the redundancy) to actually post an argument backed by facts from reputable sources and then move. Also they dont know when to simply accept another's opinion without being either insulted or making it into a competition. You think this, I think that. Agree to disagree, remain civil and move on. Be respectful. It was, however, hilarious to read the "political" arguments.

This...I agree with this. Some folks don't know when to stop, Not necessarily by any fault of their own, I also must say that being fairly new to this forum, it makes me smile to see situations like this turn into good conversation about what happened and so on.

I don't want to name any names, but i know of one person, who really seems to enjoy drama and making people argue and etc.

I get into arguements alot , but i word things in a way as to try not to offend others. And if i do offend them, i apologize...

ive learned to stay away from politics in public places, and other such topics, like abortion, or legalization of drugs.

Things like that do not belong on forums for discussion... there are so many different opinions on them, but as we all know, the only right one is ourselves in arguments like that and we defend our own opinions and argue and thats when people, as Slentard says, get 'butt hurt'.

That's a really good idea Choc. I posted my thoughts in the political thread and then moved on. It's one of those subjects that people will argue about all day long.

What really bothers me is when people start name calling or calling other members beliefs stupid etc....
It's rude and unnecessary. You can make your point without being nasty.
