I am going to say this, but I will probably not going to fix anything here:

I will try to shout, so I apologize in advance for my shouting.

DO NOT GET PERSONAL.
ATTACK THE ARGUMENT, NOT THE PERSON.
LISTEN FIRST, ARGUE SECOND.
RELAX, THIS IS NO BIG DEAL, WE ARE JUST HAVING FUN WITH TOYS.

For some reason I see people going after each other in a very aggressive way. I don't minde since I grew up with 6 other brothers and sisters and 120 first cousins -more or less- and a mother with high voice and low tolerance... and I am the middle child, so, I do like arguing and being correct at the end of it all, but will never go after someone on a personal base.

What is personal?
-You are fat
-You are old
-You are an idiot

-Or any comment on the persons personality, character or personhood as opposed to an attack on the argument which is valid in my opinion.

We can all be wrong at one given point, and we should say we are when we get there, but I know it is hard to capitulate, so we continue with the siege until last man is dead..

We never listen, we never consider the other person's arguments or image samples.

So, lets try to attack the cases, not the lawyers, ... por favor? thanks
