    When someone says that I'm wrong, not saying that they don't agree , saying I'm wrong and it is an opinion based thing nothing factually proven

      That's actually called Argumentum ad Lapidem. I can't stand that, too. Most of my friends who like to close an argument do that.

    When an intelligent answer is given regarding a particular subject; however, the respondent refuses to listen to the answer and insist in his/her type of inconclusive response although his/her premise is deemed to be highly illogical.

    When someone is so obsessed about proving something but don't have the skill set to logically break down reason, cannot bring up proof and WILL STILL continuously try to convince me I'm wrong by bringing up nonsensical information. Stubborn to admit that they're wrong with the proof/information they've been shown and will not back down whatsoever.

    I don't like when somebody professes to be an expert in something, but then gives erroneous information about it.  Particularly when a professed Christian says stuff that is wrong, and not in the bible.  That annoys me.

    Answering under my pen name (I am Yoleen Lucas) - when someone insists on promoting ignorance and / or stupidity.  Some people have criticized me for writing my facts-of-life book, saying teens are going to do what they're going to do anyway, and so they should not be taught anything.  I prefer to avoid arguments, but since I was extremely fortunate to get this information, enabling me to escape the ghetto, anytime someone says something like this, I get riled up.  Another thing is when someone tells me to ignore signs I see in a guy, and just jump into a relationship and not be such a cautious prude.  In that instance, I usually just let the subject drop; if they want to be such an idiot, it's their privilege - that doesn't mean I have to follow suit.  It's when they involve innocent teens that I'm more likely to pursue the argument.
