Guys- I’m not normally self-righteous (like I said, I don’t have a lotta standards), but when you disagree with someone, there is no need to get personal. Comments like this are a case in point:
Well, that means she’s either really really horribly old, a slut, or a major cock tease. All in all a thoroughly unattractive individual, and as she is unattractive, I do not wish to know her.
When you take an argument and turn it into an attack on someone’s personal life (about which you know nothing, I might add), you are basically conceding that you cannot argue with them on an intellectual level. And yes, I know that “the other person did it too,” but that’s no excuse: when you react emotionally and attack someone personally, you’ve lost the argument (OK, so it’s OK to joke about Ben Shaprio’s creepy obsession with porn, but he’s writing a whole goddamn book about it).
Just because someone’s opinions are wingnutty, that doesn’t necessarily make them a terrible person. My grandmother was one of the biggest wingnuts around (she voted for Pat Buchanan ferchrissake), but she was still a terrific grandma.
OK, all done now. And to the person who made the above comment- I’m not mad at you, but please think before you post.
CLARIFICATION: I’ve got no problem with being nasty, or even name-calling every now and then. My problem was that the whole damn thread had degenerated into nothing but “You’re an ass-fuck!” “You’re a cum guzzling ass-fuck monster twat!”
And let’s face it, folks, there’s only room for one cum-guzzling ass-fuck monster twat on this blog, and his name is Seb.
