Just relax a little and understand not everyone is attacking you, so ...[text shortened]... to say. It just takes away from what you're saying, and blunts any point you're trying to make.
"You need to get over this habit you have of jumping all over people who are basically agreeing with you."
no, i don't need to do that.
" He was just adding another spin to it."
nope. he threw a word salad to sound intelligent. he went about clinton supporters (because they are relevant to this thread) then immediately said the points raised in the article are invalid because he, a zambian living in South Africa (if i remember correctly) didn't meet any trump supporters acting that way.
so in fact, he didn't agree with me, and what is worse, he didn't agree with me in a stupid manner.
"Just relax a little and understand not everyone is attacking you, some are actually agreeing"
if that's what you got from my reply to him, perhaps you should read it again. along with my op.
"I've gotten the same treatment from you for merely agreeing with what you have to say."
i don't need you to agree with me. i want from you, if you choose to reply to me, to form a valid argument. i want you to not be stupid.
"It just takes away from what you're saying, and blunts any point you're trying to make"
this is what i am talking about. if you are saying something stupid i am going to point it out.
my arguments stand on their own. or don't, you are free to attack them. if you say something irrelevant to the discussion or something flat out stupid and i point that out, it in no way diminishes what i said before. because i am responding to something irrelevant, remember?
