    I don`t know why people can`t put their point forward without resorting to personal insults. It seems to be happening more and more just recently.

    The maturity level is astounding. Argument failing? Call them a moron. :rolleyes:

    Everyone is entitled to their opinions. But please, state yours in a respectful manner. That doesn't mean if you disagree with someone that you can't say so. There is a difference between "I don't agree with what you said, here's why" and "You're such an idiot, I can't believe you could actually say something like that, you should jump off a cliff".

    Miffy sometimes it easy for people to take something you say the wrong way. Let me give you an instance, the other day I actually called someone a *Silly cow* within a reply I made. Then when I read it I thought *shit* better change that, however I would call a friend a *silly cow* but being on here you just dont know how the other person will think.

    Exactly. If you disagree with someone on a particular topic, then it should stay in the thread, and not extend to judging the other person outside of that opinion - and especially not sending them abusive PMs.

    Yes, but I`m talking about blatant bitching.

    Girl with sharp teeth, agreed, that is really out of order, but you would have been better off reporting him than taking the bait, surely?

    You should be able to put your argument for whatever it is you are debating in an eloquent, succinct and coherent manner, without moaning or complaining about other people or anything else.

    You should respect another person's arguments, even though you might not agree with them.

    Instead of disrespectfully and immaturely shouting at them or calling them names, you should find arguments in order to rebut their arguments. This is what debating is all about.

    When you move away from debating, the thread loses its meaning and so the debate disintegrates.

    Everything considered, perhaps someone should chair a debating thread in order to avoid it shifting from merely debating into unwelcome, irritating and unrelated arguments?

    I didnt think sarahisgreat came across as thick in any of those posts, and I know girlwith sharp teeth is anything but thick. That wasnt what the debate was about. The problem was them just slagging each other off unneccesarily in those posts and causing a very good and interesting and thought provoking thread to get closed down. We have precious few decent threads as it is.

    Some people don't get a message until you lower yourself to their level.
    When someone is an idiot, they're an idiot.
    No reason to hide it.

    I was about to say the same thing, some people can't handle a proper argument and if that is the case I reserve my right to call them stupid and I see no reason why that should end the 'adult' debate or in this case why it should lead to a thread being closed.

    What should happen is the 'stupid' person should be ignored if they are incapable of taking notice of the facts or arguing thei point properly...........
