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?
It only sucks when you happen to be the person that everyone disagrees with.
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.
Yes it happens most in the Religious forum ,like a little gang of pygmies its kinda immature ,but thank-fully fairly transparent. very boring ,but I guess different strokes for different folks..
Yeah, those religionists are quite immature and boring.
Awww - seems a little defensive to me.
Quote some stuff from your book. That should convince every one your first comment was meant to show "love."
Change the record
I have heard that comment last week ,the week before that on an on..
Repetition wont score you more points
Seems to work for you. Oh that is right - when you do it , it is "love."
Christian - no question.
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
That is the kind of love you show - I know. I get it. You are saved, everyone else is damned and it is not your fault, Pymies are small and black, but you love them too.
Having a different opinion to the christianist opinion is OK too you know.
of course it is
and being polite and courteous in your delivery is a choice too
Ah - you mean like this:
Very courteous. Much like the "love" you have for everyone.....
Shhesh that was the polite version.
And the wierd thing is youre doing exactly what this thread enquired about ,cheering each other on with insults.
My opinion seemed to be like a red flag to 'let the verbarge begin'
Is it Christian, is it Athesism ,is it any kind of 'ism.
Its just rude and immature is what it is.
Dont you insult me ,then when I react ,ooooo look teacher ,shes not showing love ,that just immature and thats the part that is very very repetitive ,predictable and boring.
The nice thing about forums is that everything is recorded, and everybody can see for themselves who started insults, and who just replied to them
Different strokes - you know - those who do not believe will go to hell, those who do are saved.
I really am finding these religionists entertaining. Especially the female ones who are going against the word of god.
So, are you implying pygmies are immature and tend to form gangs? I would take a racial offense if I were black, really...
No Pygmies are small
Are you small and black Misha
Sorry to you if you are.
What is wrong with being small and black? Do you not "love" them equally?
talk talk talk...
do you ever get tired of the same ole attacks
do you relise how very immature and boring that is to alot of peole??
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.

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!!!!!
I know that was naughty..

Why Do Religious People Get So Angry At Atheists?When it comes to Atheism, most religious people get angry and even combative when it comes to this subject. I wonder why, especially in this day and age, one would feel anger towards another human being with a different perception/outlook/belief....

What are the most annoying responses Christians give to questions atheists ask?I'm a christian and I think that it would be helpful in ministry, if Christians new a bit more about how atheists felt about a Christian's rebuttal

Why are religious believers so bothered by atheists?Why can't we all just let bygones be bygones? Why do some believers so vehemently and viciously oppose non-believers? Why do they care so much what other people do?

How can atheists improve their image?For whatever reason, the mainstream theists in the U.S. have trouble separating average atheists from the extremists in the news. Not all atheists want to watch Christianity crumble or start their own dictatorship. But how can we spread the image of a more...
