I have often seen when reading or posting on a forum thread that 1 person will write a post. Then I have seen another person debate the idea. As they are writing, friends of the debater will jump in like a group of highschool children to help their friends. Again I am only speaking in some cases. Anyone have an explanation?
Well, I'm not sure exactly what you are talking about, but it often works that way in corporate meetings, as well. One person will present an idea. Another will disagree with it. Then another (whether friend, political ally, or maybe they just plainly agree) will second the initial notion, and maybe add some more points to it... The conversation progresses from there.
Don't think this is necessarily a high school thing, but the nature of debate when open to a larger group than just two.
Now if you are talking about those people obviously breaking into a long-time ongoing conversation (and you just have to have a sense of this)...well, I do find that rude.
Having a different opinion to Mark Knowles is ok Its not a disease ,its healthy Aww didnt you feel the love ,look its called having a different opinion. I dont send people to heaven or hell Im not that good
Highschool children? It happens in real life with almost everyone. Jesus has followers, the pope has followers, Michael jackson had followers, Obama has followers, etc, and you too has fans who follow you.
-Leaps from space- Hi yeah many people especially when it comes to religion, culture, racism, etc... politics... will just skip the whole conversation and spit out their lovely hate. People these days don't read thoroughly through things they take short-cuts to save them time. in real life that can work and is very natural for us to do because we cannot examine everything in its own right every moment of the day it would be an information overload. So what I'm saying simply stated is that the "jumpers" are often shortcut takers who only read their friends post and not the topic or argument completely and give half heart-ed and hurtful answers that will drive the intelligent people who are trying to have a conversation insane.
It is happening now after reading the thread so I believe we are all cheerleaders in one way or another. Two Bits, Four Bits, Six Bits a Dollar, all for Mark and Misha stand up and holler!!! Yea team!!!!!
