I agree with you on this. People are generally very defensive about their opinions. A lot of people (and I'm not say all
) seem to think their own opinion is the truth and whatever other people think is in invalid. I like discussions, whatever subject, but more often than not it ends up in a 'fight' or a 'I'm right and you're wrong' discussion. Which is not a discussion at all.
I think it's good everyone has his or her own opinion. But as soon as people start to attack other people because
of that different view I take my leave.
If I may add, charl_huntress, and don't get me the wrong way, I'm not trying to put you down or offend you in anyway: It's not only the supporters who are defensive about their opinions. It's also non-supporters. I've seen it happen many a time (not just on this forum) and it bothers me greatly. People should be allowed to voice their own opinions with out being offensive or rude to one and other. An honest and fair discussion is never wrong.
