Why can't people on Hubpages disagree without attacking others?


Opposing positions can lead to a better understanding. Personal attacks say a lot about the commenters' inability to discuss a matter intelligently.

    Crafty, I think you understand where I'm coming from. And the fact that you have an opinion different from others doesn't make you an evil or stupid person.

    Nice to meet you too Laurie! I thought this would be my refuge. I had participated on Huffington Post, truly the viper's pit. I participated on yahoo and a couple of other places. There is no way to tell which one is worse.

    Abby you relate my experiences also. Probably you are right ignoring and kindness are valuable and make our points better than what we my otherwise say sometimes.

    Please to meet you fpher48! Don't forget racial issues. Politics - the opponent is Satan til he's your wonderful running mate. I hate people calling me and telling me ho to vote for. We benefit by exchange of ideas - don't have to agree.

    Good point. In a previous job, most communication I had with coworkers was email based and very to the point (much like responding to a comment). It's very hard to determine tone and feeling behind most comments, so it's best to not try.

    I agree Mandy and you can still have a robust, exciting conversation. without telling someone their mother wears combat boots.

    You're handling it well. You are being more than fair postage some of the garbage and responded. Good strategy though! "Be silent and be thought a fool. Speak and remove all doubt." Someone should tell him.

    Justsilvie, I learned a lot about myself when I went to a psychologist for my fear of being alone at night. Since then I like to think and rethink before I write. Once it's out there ... kaboom! Thank you Justsilvie for reassurance.

    True Larry. Some people can't even discuss the issue because they are calling you an idiot, stupid, bound for hell, or some ridiculous stuff. You are a good guy Larry. I like you!

    Go to the Religion and Philosophy Forums where one sees ACTION. All in all, hubbers love and respect one another. Disagreement is expected and many hubbers are mature enough to realize that!
