RE: "Have you suffered from a mental illness?" thread argument
And just to make that clear - there is a huge difference between friends bantering and using whatever language they like and someone just plain attacking anyone who happens along.

And, as usual at this time of day - I am out until tomorrow.

Have a pleasant evening.

The world doesn't work like that. Surely everyone should be held to the same standard? That's my view anyway.

There are people who bring trouble to the forum. Many of us, not just me, give it back to them.

Those who come in here to cause trouble should expect to get a poor reception.

Still, it doesn't help your cause if you're claiming these people should be banned while being just as abusive as they are.

That's not the point. It's the fucking internet. If someone is rude to you for no reason in real life, you don't just call the cops crying for a fucking restraining order. You suck it up and simply avoid communication with that person. Is it so hard to just pretend a person you dislike isn't there? Do we absolutely have to reply to a person we disagree with?

No. So instead of fucking crying about it, grow a pair simply don't reply and don't read anything else from that person. Ta-da. Problem solved. Can't believe I had to hold someone's hand and baby-step them through something they were taught by their parents when they were three.

Reminds me a little bit of what I'm forever telling some of the kids at school: "if you can't play nicely together then just don't play with each other".

Nope, two wrongs don't necessarily equal a right.

If you wanna be a dick to people that you think deserve it then feel free. Just remember you look kinda hypocritical if, at the same time you are being a dick, you're bitching that anyone being a dick should be banned.

You're an apathetic psychopath who thinks he's better than everyone else.
