And just wish everyone could leave everyone as is?

No, seriously, this probably seems like an idiotic discussion thread, but it's a question that's been bothering me for a while. I realize I'm still young, so the use of this word will probably make some older people laugh, but during my [early?] youth I was really zealous about everything from religion, politics to morality. Especially on the internet, though not barred to it. I'd use it as my personal platform for expressing my opinions, debating the 'ignorant fools' and generally just venting what I thought was wrong with all of society, and that if they would just see things my way, -- the skies would open up and everyone would gather round a bonfire to sing kumbaya.
I realize I probably seem overly critical of myself, but I promise it isn't being used as a mechanism to get more posts or something. It's just that for the last few months I've come to the conclusion that arguing with as many people as I have, I don't think I've changed many opinions. The only thing that came of it was raised blood pressure, head aches, and getting mad.

Generally I've just decided that everyone should leave everyone to be. I'm not saying we can't all interact, haha, of course not. But why does everyone always have to discuss the big topics? Why can't people just be happy with others company, wherever it be? Why can't people just chat about light things and grin and laugh?

Ahh ~~ I probably sound like I'm high. [I don't do drugs, thanks] But I've found that refraining from spending hours debating and arguing and getting red faced has made me 100x happier than I've ever been and given me time to actually focus on my friends and life.

I'll shut up now and leave it to all of you to make a discussion out of this.

I completely agree with you...

I'm a passive person, and I don't like arguements. Often it's just a huge hassle and not really worth it to continue bickering. It's a waste of my time and theirs, and it doesn't really benefit either of us.
If someone wants to agrue with me, normally I either agree with them or keep my mouth shut until it's blown over.

I see what you're saying. I'm a very confrontational person by nature, so I'm having a harder time than usual keeping my mouth shut in some of the topics made over the past two days. XD

I really do think every one of them is a pathetic trolling attempt, but I"m not too sure. :P

I'm actually quite tired. I debated my butt out today, and even though the audience was great, I'm still suffering fatigue.

That sounds really lame, but my brain fried somewhere between 14:00 and 17:00.

I just hate when people are unreasonable, especially unreasonable, ridiculous, self-absorbed, egotistical individuals who are so caught up in themselves, that even if something is wrong, they refuse to admit it.

Thankfully, I haven't met anyone like that today. It's those people, though, that really screw over debates :| Darn trolls.

I want everyone to get along, respect each other, and listen to each other. The chances of that happening are small, though, due to personal experiences, culture, religion, etc. It's a shame.

Yes. Humans as a whole fight over everything. Food, land, politics, sports teams, ideologies, best Pokemon moveset, etc. It's a pain in the ass. Now, me, I'm a fighter. I go until it's futile to continue, or the other party backs down. For instance, here. I've been bashing my head against the wall with people whose logic is so convoluted and twisted that rebuttals are blocked. Now why the hell does it have to be like that? Because of a political debate? If it wasn't for the ultimate chaos that would result, I'd advocate the ending of politics, and then government. But this ain't no utopia.

Heavily opinionated people like me may well be part of the problem but it does take 2 to start a fight.

As much as this may surprise others, I hate fighting as well. It's just that certain behaviors, actions, and opinions that piss me off. :[

God, you are so funny.
If that's true; then I could be the real Jesus.

I don't fight at all; I might try to start one just for one.
But anyways, I like fighting if there's no real dramatic cause behind it.

I almost never get tired of fighting, unless it's with a friend of family member. Call me immature, foolish, whatever, I love the feeling of a good debate or fight.

There's a difference between fighting and debating, personally I love a good debate, but when it starts to get aggressive and hostile and turns into a fight not so much. If people make a topic that can be discussed they should expect a discussion and not get all annoyed when "trolls" disagree with them. People have different opinions and are keen to express them, especially on the internet where they aren't gonna get punched.

Not until this is invented anyways...

Yeah. it does get irritating and tiresome sometimes.
Especially with people who you just can't talk to. like they're unreasonable, and don't get it.

But i still like debating, even though i don't get into debates much myself oAo
and reading some of the debates is interesting

We all need to chillax once in a while though. cool off, have a nice hot cup of tea, maybe take a bubble bath. let us all frolick together in a field of daisies. past the rainbow bridge. into the magical forest of happiness. lets all be friends. GROUP HUG Y/Y? /i don't know anymore

Fighting is inevitable, so the only thing you can do is be prepared.

i dont argue with people often, only if an insulting comment that isnt meant to be a joke offends me. i'm usually very tolerant, so i dont remember having many arguments except for with my siblings (i love them though :D)

if i see an ignorant comment, i'll be tempted to comment back, but i generally avoid doing so as it may lead to a pointless argument
chances are, someone has or will say my point anyway

A little cynical, don't you think? Though I do agree with the inevitability part, which is the cynical part, I think people should really try to resist confrontations that won't help either side, but set them up for future confrontation. Now if the world could eliminate those...

According to Ford Prefect, 'Humans keep exercising their mouths because if they shut them, their brains start working.' And I find that people who can't shut their mouths cause most of the world's problems. So if everyone decided to shut the hell up for a while, 'small' conflict would probably drop drastically.
