Quote:
By calling someone a name, what some people attempt to do is encase their opponent under a label deemed by society to be negative, minimizing them and whatever they were standing for. In reality, by doing so, they are allowing themselves to being labeled, and also lose both the high ground and the argument: no one has ever called someone any of the words specified above and received a response along the lines of, “You’re SOOO right. I am EXACTLY what you just called me. Tell me ALLLLL the things I’m doing wrong.” Calling someone a name equals an immediate forfeit and the validation and lionization of the other side.



I think it was the late 90's when I started using Chat rooms and discussion forums as part of a daily activity. And since that beginning I have witnessed people routinely lose arguments the moment they start name-calling. If you have to resort to calling someone a dumbass or loser or idiot or left wing or anything of the sort, you really don't deserve your right of freedom of speech.


I am a firm believer in the little saying of sticks an stones may break my bones but your words will never hurt me. Big believer in that. However, that is something we teach children because it is expected that children will resort to name calling. We do not expect grown adults to behave as such.


This is why when I see users of this very website calling each other names as if it were their birth name it really eats at me and really upsets me.


I think it might be time to start using the suspension feature of this website software rather than being so lenient with everyone.
