When angry,emotionally impulsive people attack me, they get bogged down in their own double talk, and they accuse ME of being rude. Apparently, internet people hate politely being proven wrong. They prefer to sling mud and insults.Go figure.

The ones who do that do so because they have a big emotional (rather than reasoned) investment in their cockeyed ideology.

I know, and when I don't let them get away with it, as they are used to, they say I'm rude and abrasive. I'm cuddly, to nice people, not lunatics.

Or you could be the bigger person and be nice to everyone and forgive them for anything they say or do.....you would be a much happier person..

I never get angry at anyone. Nothing to forgive. Some STAY angry though.

I don't know. I'm polite and civil. The guilty attack with insults, anger, emotion, name calling, hate, innuendo, and outright lies, and then they get mad and say I'M rude because they get stuck in their own quagmire of hypocrisy and double talk. I don't understand.

Politics on the internet are like Monday mornings without coffee. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinim...6e42225d36.jpg

I do agree completely, that being right does not make someone rude. I have also noticed, that people have very different ideas of what constitutes being rude, right and or wrong.

Internet people who are wrong, lying, or just plain consumed very often contradict themselves and lash out when caught. I've noticed THAT!

More common than seeing a flower growing up out of the snow, for sure. :)

Right or wrong, can be accompanied with rudeness. Unless you work in politics and have for a long time, your opinion is just an opinion. You can take it or leave it and even laugh at it.

I mostly agree with you, MM. Though I would replace "unless you work in politics and have for a long time" with "unless you have actual facts". Politicians and bureaucrats tend to deal more in **** than facts.

I agree with what you replaced my phrase with. But also, it would depend on the facts and more specifically, who they came from. I've seen a few charts that were altered.

As have I, which is why I qualified it with "actual". :)

Sadly some people live in a delusional world & believe what they want to believe. I totally agree with your "explained by"...just remember some people are just bat shit crazy & its best to just walk away. I let someone on the internet the other day make me so angry that I slung my coffee cup across the room. After I realized what I did, I thought for a second & said "Oh hell no" & removed this person from my life permanently. I feel 100 percent better now.
