What is the deal with people losing an argument and refusing to concede when they are bested, by saying, "Well, I gues we'll just have to agree to disagree . . ."

What a cartload of hot dark steaming, fly-attracting, flecked with little kernels of undigested corn, and maybe some peanuts ew, big soft nutty POOOO!


If I am wrong I'll admit it, OK? I will publicly concede your point. But if I have not, then don't you dare take that superior attitude with me. I know this is the anonymous internet, and names will never hurt me, but so help me ME I'll conversationally WHACK you over the head with a rhetorical lawnchair, you sons of an unwed mule!

This whole tolerance/acceptance crap has gone WAY TOO FAR! If I know that you suck, then you're pretending we are both big sloppy wet-kissing best girlfriends is morally disgusting to me.

I will belabor you publicly for trying to weasel out of a fight you're losing, you lingerer in parking lots. Know that you have earned MY ETERNAL IRE!

You trying to pretend to somehow rise above my attitude makes me say "rise above this, you sniffer of other peoples' bicycle seats!"

Ah, I sense a bit of tension and hostility. I disagree with you, strangecraft, but I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.

We call it a corny nut roll where I am from , and just because you may be more articulate in expressing your thoughts , it doesn't ALWAYS mean you're right . I'll have to disagree with your agreement to" agree to disagree" is a losers last recourse . agreed ?

It depends on the reasons for 'tolerance'.

For example, some believe that they have to be tolerant because 'what would people think if I said what I really think ?'. Others believe that they should be tolerant because that is the way they have been brought up. Some others are tolerant because of political Correctness. And then you have those whose consciences teach them that acceptance is the way to go - that every human being is an individual and deserves respect.

If people wish to disregard my opinions, I won't force them - I respect and tolerate their views. I give my information and let them choose what to make of it.

I never agree to disagree. We either agree or disagree, but that doesnt mean that we aren't able to discuss things like decent human beings.
