Why do people have to make mean comments when disagreeing? I hate that. And there's not much I hate.
It is hurtful, careless, and closer to evil than brilliant. ( I told you in the title I was of the Stupid kind; Stupidus Homo Sapiens, in fact, the
Sapiens part is over rated and serves only to not having to categorize me at the level of a can worm, if I make sense. )
But it's way cooler to be a badass with a wonderfully constructed rhetoric or simply be as blunt as a sledgehammer. ( I know the difference between a
sledgehammer, a sledge and a hammer, I looked it up on Wiki. )
So you can bash on inferior people like me. You see in the lines above I can pound myself. I could spit on you too, if I wanted to
I read how we are more awaken then all the sheep surrounding us but in truth, we are
the sheep. Because we perpetuate amongst ourselves what
we denounce to see outside.
We say TPTB hides things from us. When a poster here simply insults another member for the sake of insulting, instead of challenging in an
intelligent way, or even better, to teach in order to correct what is wrongly perceived or understood, it is ALL of ATS that hurts.
Why? Because it shows the mentality of the caveman. Or that of a primate, your pick. Does ATS really need to look that stupid? If we don't even
take care of our own, here, whatever battles we think we will have to fight is already lost as we keep on dividing ourselves. Or yourselves, if I'm
not considered part of the lot. Whatever.
There exists a thing such as disagreeing in good terms. Sadly, it must be an incentive, the insults, for many brilliant mind, or informed ones, to
remain as lurkers.
I know mods will come here and say that there a rules, we can report a "bad" post... but what use is it if you report a post that looks like;
You're an @$$! E=MC2 because scientific data says so with...
The poster may be making a valid point, but the-
You're an @$$!
...part is tolerated. Which encourages posters to act in such a way. Even if a point is valid, if it is spouted with insults, it should be
removed. Period. Only then will people start to act in a civilized manner. Otherwise, it's a compromise that leads down the slope.
Don't anybody look at the world? Bah! What am I saying. I'm s'posed t'be m'ntally ch'llenged, right?
