I have a tendency to become wildly bored late at night... so I trawl threads looking for interesting things to read.
Ok ok, I lie! What I'm actually looking for is heated debate, controversial issues, people spouting off their opinion and POVs and getting entirely off topic in some cases (c'mon, who doesn't love a good tangent?)
I love reading great arguments where it teeters on offensive (eg - not being totally PC). I love reading peoples opinions and world views, whether they be main stream, alternative, or just plain nutty... it fascinates me! Gay marriage, abortion, adoption, religion, errr even politics - if I can stay awake for it. Bring it on, and lets make it juicy please!
I'm not talking about a plain old sh!t slinging contest. Arguments with substance is what I'm looking for. Intelligent, insightful and passionate debates.....
However, I get the feeling that people shy away from controversial issues. This saddens me as it makes for sparse reading material.
Surely I cannot be the only closet drama queen out there??? *knocks on screen* Hello?
I haven't really posed a question so far. So here's one for my magic 8 ball:
Do you think lively debates should be encouraged on public forums, and people need to (for lack of a better phrase) 'harden up' (or smarten up) to opposing opinions?
Should I be shot for secretly loving the drama?
