So for anyone who’s known me for any length of time you know that I love to debate, but even more than that, I love to bait people.
I know it’s a bad habit, however when you debate in topics like religion or politics, you usually come across people that will quickly turn what should be a good thread into a personal attack and resort to profanity and name-calling…
Essentially proving some well noted people in history right. For example:
Joseph Cook said, “A single profane expression betrays a [person’s] low breeding.” Alexander Pope said, “To swear is neither brave, polite, nor wise.”
A couple more of my favorite quotes include Eric Hoffer who said, “Rudeness is the weak [person’s] imitation of strength” and I don’t know who said, “Profanity is the last refuge of the truly ignorant,” but I totally agree.
Anyway, here’s the scenario. A friend of mine posted a pretty cool graphic about the economy and I disagreed, because the numbers were a bit off, however one of the people who started commenting, off the bat started with accusations and swearing. I replied to the post as intelligently as possible, (yes I did call him an a$$ for it), and the whole thread just took a dive bomb from there…
That’s when I decided to bait him to see how low he would go. In short I reduced my age to about five and pulled out all the playground pre-pubescent stops.
You’d think that AFTER I pointed out that I’m going to record it for YouTube that he would realize that I wasn’t actually serious… that’s what I get for arguing with an idiot.
I’ve blotted out his name to protect his identity.
I warn you… It’s NOT pretty! (Click on images to view full size in a new window).
“Tis sad but true. There are people out there who have nothing better to do than pick fights in political thread by way of name-calling and profanity. One would THINK that after I said it twice I was going to post on youtube, 9gag and blog about it he’d stop right?
NOPE!!!! The argument continued on…
This is why you should never debate with idiots…
