A back-and-forth conversation means just that...and not bailing the minute someone really pisses you off. (+15)
says Sukiesnow on Feb 17th 17 (#805386)
I never bail, I'll talk to anyone as long as they stay civil...
says JD on Feb 17th 17 (#2499946)
You do...sometimes fading into the background is another alternative...:)
says Sukiesnow on Feb 17th 17 (#2500021)
No I don't....
says JD on Feb 17th 17 (#2500025)
I will bail if it is obvious it is just going to end up in a fight or if someone is baiting me with their comments.
says Tiffanee on Feb 17th 17 (#2499956)
I'll leave the conversation if the attacks or name calling begins. I won't put up with that from anyone. I think name calling is so immature. If we can't agree to disagree, then the conversation ends.

I try not to jump. But if they same arguement goes round and round , i generally bow out

What does darling Janet call them: Circular Arguments..:)
says Sukiesnow on Feb 17th 17 (#2500018)
I've already made my comment on Bud's post. I'm tired of listening to people's ****. It's come to a point where a person can't even choose a political party, because let's face it, the fighting is 99% about politics.
says Synyster on Feb 17th 17 (#2500008)
I've got him blocked. He's a bully.
Yes...fighting and politics...lol... No one ever fights about underwear. Just sayin.
says Sukiesnow on Feb 17th 17 (#2500016)
Bud's not a bully ... his opinionated just like everyone else on here.
Haha Sukie ... I would never fight about underwear, especially women's underwear.
says Synyster on Feb 17th 17 (#2500020)
I love that word: underwear. Everyone has it.
Bud is an ****. Not as much my opinion, but his own opinion about himself.
says Sukiesnow on Feb 17th 17 (#2500022)
I'd just vote down for someone's underwear
says OzSurfer on Feb 17th 17 (#2500045)
Well It's better then up or even on.
says Synyster on Feb 17th 17 (#2500047)
I've just been hanging out with my teenage nephews, it's funny how I go down to their level rather than they come up to mine
says OzSurfer on Feb 17th 17 (#2500058)
It's much easy and you don't need to think much.
says Synyster on Feb 17th 17 (#2500060)
Exactly! Actually I've noticed that politicians adopt the same principle
says OzSurfer on Feb 17th 17 (#2500063)
They do, they really do. What other job has full benefits, endless days off, a huge salary and their contribution to society is nil?
says Synyster on Feb 17th 17 (#2500069)
Yes exactly! They don't produce anything or make any money. They basically just deal in other people's money while making a lot of their own money and getting a retirement fund that the rest of us could only dream about. I'd better bail now haha before one of us mentions the T word
says OzSurfer on Feb 17th 17 (#2500087)
says Synyster on Feb 17th 17 (#2500093)
If I feel that I lack the ability to keep calm and keep my big mouth shut I will walk away if someone pisses me off. It is more for my benefit than it is theirs.
says Lil_Princess on Feb 17th 17 (#2500030)
It's probably a generous mouth...and sweet.
says Sukiesnow on Feb 17th 17 (#2500048)
It could be Sadly if I get fired up it goes well beyond "Well Bless Your Heart"
says Lil_Princess on Feb 17th 17 (#2500104)
I agree although on rare occasions someone will get a basic comment, often something I've said in humour and turn it into a long back and forth conversation so they can use it to reiterate their position on something controversial, have the last comment and use me as the vehicle for all that. When I sense those, I bail immediately.
says OzSurfer on Feb 17th 17 (#2500055)
I don't call it bailing..
I call it knowing when to quit (sometimes not to even bother starting) because the other person keeps going on and on, like a rabid chihuahua barking at his shadow..
says DandyDon on Feb 18th 17 (#2500237)
Lol...chihuahua...cute but not my fave dog.
says Sukiesnow on Feb 18th 17 (#2500319)
Calling names like "racist" "Hitler" "NAZI" and "anti-semite" and so forth lose the conversation.
says Cezar on Feb 18th 17 (#2500378)
Generally fade-out... I agree...
says Sukiesnow on Feb 18th 17 (#2500686)
thats not the internet debate way
says TomboyJanet on Feb 18th 17 (#2500665)
says Sukiesnow on Feb 18th 17 (#2500681)
to be rude and attack the other person directly instead of retort. Worst tactics include: namecalling (LIBTARD!!) Deathwishing, Threatening with bull, Making horrible jokes, mocking upbringing, forcing untrue stereotypes (feminists get this ALLLL the time!) "Feminazi, You want men to die!" I just spent two years morning my father thank you
says TomboyJanet on Feb 18th 17 (#2500688)
Retorting can be good for the person retorting... After that...hopefully they can come to a calm place...and either take a moment to say something nice about the other persons POV...yes, there IS that...and if that fails...agree to disagree...
Janet...some people come with so much of a different background than you do...but if they live in this world it's difficult not empathize with yours.
If this fails... All I can say is that some people are SO BITTER and SO ANGRY for some reason, there really is nothing one can do... It's too bad they take their opinions online instead of a Therapy Group...where they should be.
What do you think?
says Sukiesnow on Feb 18th 17 (#2500698)
I agree, but also sometimes when you're upset, it's better to walk away instead of saying something your might regret later.
But I always like to try to end all negative convos on positive notes or attempting to find some common ground of some sort.
says Zolfie on Feb 18th 17 (#2500809)
I don't mind opposing views of how I might've been with a situation but, if my conversation partner chooses to read me the riot act in a blistering way, I sure as hell won't stand by while they scream and drool and flail their arms - screw that infantile bs.
