    Actually, that's complete bollocks and we both know it. I was unfailingly polite in our debates. You're the one who threw his toys out of the pram and got abusive. You may be able to rewrite history in your own mind, but the posts are there for all to see.

    Today while I was walking down the street I was thinking of giving my dogs a bath.

    Today I was walking down the road wondering if the arguments would stop. Then laughed at the thought, and how rediculous it sounded.

    Here we go again.Even now that we don't debate and try to talk calmly you're doing this.You're trying to piss me off.4th Musketeer you pissed me off with your posts back then and that made me feel angry,somehow like the others you made me feel as if I was "suffocating",you can accept that or not.In order for someone to make me angry it takes some irony,nasty sarcasm and some mockery.

    I don't just get angry out of nothing :S

    Maybe the debate section should be changed and become strictly Fantasy.

    Perhaps that would be the best solution for all of us.Because you can't seriously get mad if you debate about who was the best of all Morgoth or Sauron or who is the coolest one Frodo or Harry or who wrote the best fantasy series etc.

    But when someone debates religions and someone who doesn't even believe in God or hates the Churches comes and openly says something like "haha you suck because you believe" or "i find this ridiculous" and the other guy gets angry and then the other guy gets angry as well and more people are dragged into this etc. etc.that's not good for any of us.

    Because let's face it,there are people who don't believe but KNOW how to respect the other person's beliefs and opinions or be subtle when they refuse something and there are people who simply act like 1917's Bolsheviks.



    Besides this is the premium Fantasy Forum.

    To Foin, there are some threads like that in the Polls section, which turn into light-hearted debates. I always saw the forum as the more serious stuff at the top of the page, and less serious stuff at the bottom.

    I f***king love Raff's pictures and stuff that he posts. The win is huge.

    Yeah we start with the "Funeral Announcements" :D then proceed to the Welcoming thread where we must look serious (as if...)then we go on with a bunch of relatively serious threads...and then the debate :eek:

    What I also hate about the debate section is that everyone talks normally in every other section.You know...simple language...jokes...normal stuff.Then suddenly when they enter a debate they all start using these...scientific terms,complicated language,heavy english o_O and it's as if everybody wants to sound like a scholar or something.It's hillarious from one side...but from the other one it's confusing.Well at least for me.

    I mean come on....I've seen phrases there that made me lol and say "come on,are you kidding me?"

    Use of lots of rarely heard,complicated,serious words and terms in small sentences can make you lol!

    I do enjoy seeing Turambar and Crusader engage into debates....well up to a point then i get either lost or too bored :S

    The bane of debate is religious dogma, which strips the individual of his/her humanity and leaves
    a mindless automaton spewing prejudice under the guise of enlightenment.

    I'd rather risk a little anger, for the chance to gain a little wisdom.




    and like it or not, foi, I use the same vocabulary in debates as I do out.

    Serious business calls for a serious vocabulary. It's like, super serious. :p


    Like that, yeah. Good job with the example Elladan. XD
