Default Damn. Can anybody on this site debate without throwing insults?

I mean, really. It's like everyone here argues instead of debating.

I throw some insults around from time to time, too, but that's usually towards trolls or someone who is going out of his way to annoy me (eg. quoting me every so often & only responding with b.s comments).

Can you guys name ANY posters who can debate without insulting (aka not argue)?

Me. I'm pretty sure the only person I have insulted is bladers, which doesn't count since he is obviously a troll.

I don't insult people. It's important to respect the fact that people have different opinions.

Exactly. And if they start hurling insults it is best to just ignore them and stay on topic, because it means you are winning.

I used to come here mostly to insult people and demean them in the most imaginative ways, but lately it's lost its lustre, I feel like im just goin through the motions and my venomous angst no longer feels sincere.

I guess I'm getting too old for ISH. I thought clowning people was probably the best part of ISH. That's what every classic thread is about. But nowadays the Internet has become too mainstream and friendly. All the heavy hitters on this site are washed up too, and the young crop is boring and completely devoid of personality and flair.

I believe free expression and honesty is the best policy. If I feel someone is an idiot, I will tell him, and then explain to him he's an idiot.

This is very different from what a lot of ISH posters do. There are many children in here who engages a deceptive use of logic (ad hominems) to chicken out a debate.

The most popular phrase is calling someone a troll. Be careful of these guys. They blatantly throw this term around to chicken out of an argument.

1. Person A throws out an argument.

2. Person B refutes the argument.

3. Person A calls B a troll because he can't argue anymore.

That's usually how it goes. It's really nothing more than a deceptive use of logic because we have too many idiots in here who can't engage in a proper discussion pound for pound.

"i can't believe anyone would be as stupid as to think....."

"your response is simply beyond retarded because...."

"take kobe/lebron's d!ck outta your mouth and think logically for a second...."

If you include MJ, that last one legitimately applies to 80% of posts in the NBA forum.
