Thread Name: BS: people arguing to much
Subject: RE: BS: people arguing to much
I understand some argument, but I'm afraid I agree with John in Hull. I've seen a few comments of "what did you mean by that" recently, and got the feeling the question wasn't aimed at understanding what someone had said, but looking at something they could argue with. I've seen folks choose the most miniscule detail to pick a fight over. Forgive me, but that endless thing about how cats shouldn't be allowed to kill - not a discussion, mind you, but a debate - that was just plain silly.

I personally like having some threads which are discussions. I sort of miss them. (You know - ones where a person posts something about their own experience and then others share theirs or comment.)
