    Talking Information, Discussions, Debates and Fights

    Quite often I've seen someone suggest a thread is a fight, or being 'catty' (BTW I despise that term being applied to women, as an implication of female only nastiness when it's male cats that right more than women), being b1tchy (another term I hate, but I digress) when really people are just having a discussion with opposing views, or a debate.

    Often a healthy, vigerous or heated debate isn't a fight and isn't personal. I think often people are too quick to jump to the view that people are being 'catty' or b1tchy. Either that or I am quite obtuse.

    LOL you ws reading the same things as i was typing in today i think hehe ( i didnt use the c word once you would be so proud lol ) Yes i totally agree discusion is good always good, I laughed today i was accused of looking for a fight and i wasnt but then i ended up assmuning the other one was so in the end it was a case of pot calling the kettle.

    So yer i think sometimes we all think we are discusssing and the other is looking for a fight.

    and you being obtuse no way that is not your style in IMO the oh mighty peace keeper and the defender of the under dog maybe but not obtuse

    Some people can't handle difference of opinion and take it as an attack, and make it personal, when it isn't.

    No, I don't think so. People have suggested it, but I don't think the mods are keen.

    I don't know if this is referring to a specific thread (if so, I missed it) or about bh in general.

    I think it can be nasty sometimes, for sure, but other times people take offence or take you the wrong way.

    A specific thread brought it to mind, but no it's a general comment that comes up when a discussion thread has different opinions or beliefs being posted.

    Yes, some threads do get nasty or personal - and quite often that's understandably when the mods step in.

    Maybe I have thick skin, or maybe I have a 'thick head' lol, but it takes a fair bit to rile me up in online discussions.

    I kind of expect that a lot of people will disagree with me actually because I have some very different views about some things. ie, I'm a Christian.

    Disagreeing and voicing your opposing opinion I think is quite healthy and can help ideas grow.

    Depending on the subject, I think you can tell when a discussion turns into a debate and then sinks to becoming a fight.

    Elijahsmum, a debate section has been requested and denied.
    Which is a shame I think, considering soooo many topics get debated for educational and entertainment purposes in the media.

    An adults only section was requested and denied, but eventually the mods agreed to trial it. Seems it wasn't such a bad idea after all as we still have an adults only section. A poll helped, too.

    I think a debate area would be great.
