Feeling persecuted, Nos?

This is bullshit. I have never once disagreed with you simply because it is you. I disagree when I think you are wrong, and I tell you why I think so. This is how people learn. But you can't get past being told you're wrong. You don't like it. You react emotionally and viciously, and damn the evidence. Never mind defending the position, just attack or dismiss. This is straight from the Fundie 101 textbook.

Now drop this childish crap and actually contribute something to this board.


Whatever.

The worst thing Nos could do to me is provide evidence and argue rationally. I think I'd pass out-- maybe fall off my chair and hurt myself.

You're doing a bit of selective reading. On most occasions I do provide evidence. You have just become tiresome and irrelevant.

Why don't you start a topic asking people what they think of your contributions?

Nos482,

Could we please request that you participate more constructively. Please try to rise above your suspicions that others aren't dealing forthrightly with your posts to nonetheless treat others with respect.

Board resources are also deserving of respect. Quoting two entire messages for a one word reply is wasteful. If you'd like to pay the bills then, by all means, waste away, but until then more care would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

The way these two are going about their postings in regard to me will only degrade into a flame war and I'm just getting tired of them.

You're frustrated with them, they're frustrated with you. They're convinced they're debating faithfully, as are you. These situations are why the streets of our cities are not mobbed with unemployed discussion board moderators.

Most people have to find their own way out of these difference-of-opinion circumstances, but sometimes a little advice helps, so if this helps, fine, if not, it didn't cost me anything to give it.

It is the nature of this medium for discussion to become heated. It is frequently nobody's fault but more a result of conflicting styles.

Adding to the problem is that persuasion is usually a very slow process. Where deeply held beliefs are concerned people don't usually change their minds, and even those who do don't often become convinced after seeing an argument once. It takes many presentations of the argument in many forms by many people over long time periods.

Even in matters of fact debate can be long and loud, and even someone who has been shown wrong is often unlikely to concede since human pride takes over and it's easier and less humbling to obfuscate.

But it is the judgment of this flawed moderator that you are too quick to jump to the conclusion that someone is yanking your chain. Persuasion by message board is not a quick process, and more patience will probably bring you better and more satisfying results.

If I were "too quick to jump..." I would have given up on them long ago. They are being contrary in regards to me.

You have been tossing insults since my first post to you. Sadly, I cannot remember what thread that was in but I doubt that anyone who was around at the time has forgotten it.
