Especially when they are inflexible in their points of view, thus making things worse.

Mooby and Lotus just stay out of debating with the enemy and your worries will be gone

I'm guilty of that so I guess i grind your gears? While I read the post in the locker room and keep up dated on what going on with the team I just don't post very much in the off season. I probably don't post as much there as I did when I joined but its a great way to keep up with the team.
I guess I need to go over there and start a new Manning thread or Who Shhould Be Our QB thread.

In a forum clearly marked 'Debating with the enemy'......

There's a fine line between debating and instigating.

And how would you suggest (other than 'don't') we broach a topic worth discussing (in my opinion and other judging by the responses) if we don't 'instigate'?

Do you suffer from 'hurt feelings' much?

You're accusing me of suffering from hurt feelings yet the tone of your posts suggests you're the one actually getting upset about this. I guess I should be asking you the same question. Actually the question I really want to ask was how were you ever a mod?

Where in my post does a hint of hurt feeling occur?

'Tone'. Trick, please!

Why not go to PM and save wasting space on this forum, mooby, eh?

Oh, and I have incriminating pictures of some of the original Mods. They let me Mod until I realized it's actually no fun.

There is a difference between debating and instigating.

Debating involves respecting that perspectives other than one's own may have merit and, on that basis, having a good faith discussion.

Instigating, in this context, means insisting on poorly-considered perspectives without respecting the views of others or even, sometimes, respecting relevant facts.

How would I even know the views of others if the question hasn't yet been posed?

As for 'respecting relevant facts', you seem to have a knack for telling people in this forum how something is without deigning to substantiate your position. Argument from the position of authority, common with a lot of very poor teachers.

Please PM me if you have a personal issue with me not showing the correct level of perceived respect, don't waste this forum for personal attacks.

Thanks.

There was no personal attack in what I wrote. You, however, launched a personal attack.

You completely missed my point.

Point missed.
Just because you couch your insults in flowery prose (as you did in another thread) doesn't mean it's not meant as a personal attack.

Try to be less of a hypocrite.

I didn't miss your point, I just have no respect for you.

Given that my point was about respect for others (hence my repeated use of the word "respect"), yeah, you missed my point.

BTW in that other thread I did not insult you. Someone just took it that way. If I wanted to insult you, you would know it. There would be no ambiguity.
