What makes people want to personally attack and denigrate another person's viewpoint in the
Motivations are different for everyone. Ego, waking up on the wrong side of the bed, passion for the subject, ignorance of facts, a love of debate or drama, a need to be "better than" someone else, even a misguided desire to help people because you feel your way is the best way to live. There are many motivators that can cause people to act out. Another big reason is that some people feel threatened by different ideas that they don't fully understand. The bright side is that we don't burn people for heresy and such anymore - now we just brawl on internet forums .
This is a great question gm since you are one of the main one's who does exactly what you are describing. Going as far as personally attacking someone and telling them they need psychological help because they disagree with your point of view.
You are a liberal, I am a conservative. Of course, we are going to disagree. But, the personal attacks are going way too far. You would think someone who portrays themselves to be as intelligent as you do that you would be above this type of behavior. I suppose not.
Yes, sometimes I can be highly vitepurative and vitriolic. For that, I deeply apologize to you and wish you and yours a Merry Christmas. Very sorry for this egregious behavior on my part.
As can I gm. None of us a perfect by any means. Wishing you and yours a very merry Christmas!!
There is a great saying: When you point a finger 3 more are pointed back at you.

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.
