Some people are confrontational, while others do everything in their power to avoid it. Others stand up for what they believe in, while others tend
to follow the crowd. I definitely agree that some people are more prone, than others, to argue. I know some people that will keep their true
opinions to themselves, just to prevent a discussion from happening.
Not every discussion has to be confrontational, but sometimes we do not have the choice.
Quiet, Shy, Timid, etc., are all attributes of people who may fail to debate or discuss issues openly while in public. I think ATS is the perfect
tool for those who feel timid in public. With the protection of their computer monitor, they are able to voice their opinions and concerns, with
complete knowledge that they can click the X and ignore the unfortunate argument that may follow. In reality, it is slightly tougher to just walk
away from an argument.
I think ATS shows a relatively accurate curve of members who are confrontation, others who avoid confrontation, and others who can discuss openly
without it becoming confrontational.
