    I've been hearing a lot about abuses in this forum lately.

    It's a debate forum for crying out loud!

    If every abuse was reported we'd all be banned. If you don't like it, or can't take it, then leave, or don't debate with the one you don't like.

    But quit crying and running to your mama. Stand up like an adult. Or leave.

    Adults don't insult eachother.
    And we who are here to debate aren't here to take insults.
    Those who are here and think it's a competion of insulting, and he who wins has the Truth in his hands. Not the case. Everyone insulting another has immediately lost the debate.
    The interesting debates are between two grown ups. Because they don't have to insult eachother.

    What you think your hearing may not be the whole story as you may not know all the facts, so I don't think it's a good call on yours or anyones part to say anything goes here on this forum. This is supposedly a religious forum and we should hopefully be respectful of each other as adults and expect that from each other. Harassmennt of any form is never acceptable whether you agree or not. If a person feels he is being harassed that is his right and personal opinion to object that and not yours to say it isn't.

    I am a mature adult, and your breath stinks like garlic and fish.

    Then put on a dress 😛

    That's just because you suck at being insulting, set your bar higher my friend.

    I agree for the most part with you, I am just busting your chops for fun. But a bit of fire makes the debate more colourful, and less bland...😛

    God bless us all 🙂

    It's the spirituality forum, not the religious forum.

    I'm in the middle on this. if someone poses and idea or concept they need to understand that it will be challenged. Is that harassment? No. Some are quick to think that however. I can vehemently disagree with someone yet keep it as civil as I can. The flip side of it is people get very charged up on the subjects.
    Overall I agree though with OP

    I should dig into your forum posts and see what I can find. 😉

    But you're right about one thing. When someone resorts to insults they automatically lose the debate.

    It wouldn't hurt for some folks around here to take a class in logic though. It's been so long. What are there? Five fallacies?

    There have been many niggles between certain people on here in the past, I wont mention any negative names, of course, but I will say, at times, I find a "slap in the face" a gentle reminder that perhaps some have not been behaving like adults and of course there will always be those that subscribe to "an eye for an eye".
