Is it more mature to walk away than it is to staying involved in a petty bickering match?


There are all sorts of people in the world, and it's safe to say that we all don't get along - especially on HP. There are one or two people who I've interacted with here who seem to want nothing more than to put other people down when they disagree, and I've told them that I choose not to interact with them anymore. In response, one told me to grow up. Is it more mature to simply walk away from interactions with those people, or is it more mature to bicker back and forth with them endlessly and never accomplish anything?

    I've done that. They still maintain that is because I'm intimidated by them, but who cares? If that's what helps them deal with their own negativity, that's their own prerogative. Reflects more on them than anyone else, I think.
