name calling
    #3168886 - 09/23/04 06:05 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

when does it ever help a conversation?


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

hehe ^

and to answer your question, it doesnt. If you ever find yourself using an insulting or derogatory term to refer to someone here, delete everything you wrote, take a few deep breaths, and see if you can get your point across without resorting to primary school tactics.

If not, you have no good point to make, and you are masking your inability to logically debate with an ad hominem attack.

(the ad hominem attack is like the first and most obvious sign of a philosophical weakness.)

When someone uses name calling its a good sign that their motives for debate are seriously flawed. It shows that they are taking the playground bully mindset and trying to bring it into an adult discussion level.

I believe it can be an exercise in self-discipline and ego control.  If someone calls you a name and you get offended by it, then you know you need to work on taming your ego.  Now, what do you think of that, jackass? :wink:

what if name calling is all a person knows? do you automatically disregard him/her? are they all the sudden an enemy?

Im not saying that name calling is good, but you can miss out on some really interesting people.........not everyone is gonna have a lalala happy expression of themselves, maybe that negative expression that you recieve is positive to the person saying shit.

All im saying is no one will all the sudden turn nice and happy, you will run into people like that, its how you react that matters. :smile:

I agree  :thumbup:

I'm not saying putting people down isn't necessary, I'm just asking to see when people think it helps conversation :grin:


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

yes

the thing is that I don't think words are inherently bad.

it depends on the intent behind the words. :wink:

but obviously this question is irrelevent, cuz you would know how to answer, if its a friend, you would know that the/shes joking, even if he/she serious, who cares, if its someone you dont know, and you know they've offended you in an obvious way, just walk off

Whats the problem?
these things dont happen that often, dont worry about it,

lol
pees :smile:
