Can't we all just get along?

Like, I understand this is a debate site, and many people here have slightly inflated egos, so I know that clash and disagreement are inevitable, but really now: can we not just debate and argue in a respectful way.

I've seen just about enough mud-slinging back and forth, here.

We can try to, but people like 000ike and Jimtimmy will constantly battle each other out. Oh, and include Gileandos with his passionate, overinflated religious views as well as others.

This Conservative influx has been like lighting a match in a chamber of pressurized methane, the uproar was unavoidable.

Interesting how this thread was relatively ignored for the clash-oriented threads elsewhere. :/

I really am starting to appreciate this. Before I thought it was just over the conservatives vs liberal voting blocks war that is allegedly going on, but after seeing all this race stuff going on with JimTimmy and a couple people try to shove their political endorsements down people's throats, it really is sad to see...

And this now has new relevance since DK is going. I would like people to stop fussing with each other and actually get their point across--not an insult, a point.

I kinda think the drama is interesting. And I think alot of people secretly like it too. Humans have always been attracted to drama. That's why junk like jersey shore gets so popular.

I agree that Jimmy does like his Ad Hom, but he's not the sole driver of the ad hom epidemic. Ike is doing his fair share, also.

Consensus, would be the death knell of this site. However, bad behavior just degrades the site, but so too does the vast quantities of ingnorant and foolishly closed minded posts that seem to have filled this site.

DDO has suffered a significant degradation of intellectual excellence over the last year or so. This is not a right-left thing, not at all, because I've seen people who claim to ally themselves with both sides, who cling to emotional rhetoric, and shallow arguments. There was a time when the arguments got incredibly heated, but only required sharper and deeper arguments, not immediate polarizing. I admit I have fallen into this from time to time recently, because the frustration with the people who are arguing is just too idiotic to warrant a response with intellectual gravity.

I would like to see a return to a time when we were forced to do more research to support our arguments and positions, instead of the simple disimissal and identification of moronic arguments and positions.

My posts are not about endorsing Ron Paul, my posts are about the New World Order and part of the solution is Ron Paul because he is the only anti-NWO candidate.

I find it funny that people who don't understand Ron Paul just decide to hate him. You need to learn things about Ron Paul. And what in the crap do you mean by "are complete d*cks towards anyone who doesnt agree with them"?

A lot of debates are respectful, not sure what you're talking about. I mean, it's easy too differentiate between the respectful and the rude people. I bet, you don't consider whom you're debating and so find yourself in uncomfortable, hostile debates.

Well take Geolaurate8 over here, in his thread about how Ron paul will win UnStupendous Man gave his two cents over the matter then GeoLaurate8 turned into supreme dick mode and went ahead and called him a "NWO mind control slave puppet." without being provoked
