    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.

      I agree with Lita, a healthy debate is always good, it's a form of communication.

                    LOL

                    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. lol

                    Having a different opinion to the christianist opinion is OK too you know. wink

        Different strokes - you know - those who do not believe will go to hell, those who do are saved. lol lol

        I really am finding these religionists entertaining. Especially the female ones who are going against the word of god. wink

      So, are you implying pygmies are immature and tend to form gangs? I would take a racial offense if I were black, really...

          What is wrong with being small and black? Do you not "love" them equally?

            Absolutely nothing. I've known quite a few happy sheep. Being small and black hasn't bothered them half so much as the stigma would suggest smile

    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.
