  • I do agree with everything you said, but just to prevent another "help, Neo is badgering me", it's best to let that thread die. Besides, it's rather evident that you're talking to a wall - which is a really ironic statement when referring to Trump supporters.

    And you're right, debate isn't a solution to current trends, as a useful debate requires an intelligent--or at least a reasonable--participant on either side, which is difficult to find when talking to Trump supporters. However, as the impartial administrator, I can't really say that it's necessary to keep trying to educate Trump supporters in hopes that they'll finally see the truth and move away from the racist bleached orange. (Although there is something to be said that President Trump would still be better than President Pence ... It's like choosing between the plague and cholera *sighs*)

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know that in a less public place than the Avatar Wiki. I don't really mind people knowing that I side with you on this issue, but on the other hand, I really, really don't want the drama that comes with that. Seriously, where you keep finding the energy to continue debating these kind of issues baffles me :-p

    • Huh, I never knew you had a Wiki.

      I do agree with everything you said, but just to prevent another "help, Neo is badgering me", it's best to let that thread die.

      Wow, do you get those a lot? I mean, I'm not surprised, but I can't help but feel a bit guilty.

      Besides, it's rather evident that you're talking to a wall - which is a really ironic statement when referring to Trump supporters.

      I see what you did there.

      And you're right, debate isn't a solution to current trends, as a useful debate requires an intelligent--or at least a reasonable--participant on either side, which is difficult to find when talking to Trump supporters.

      Yeah, that's one thing I was thinking. I was trying to not say too much, because that would defeat the purpose of saying I wasn't going to keep arguing. But I was also thinking that if the left wasn't so bloody obsessed with debate, the alt right wouldn't be as popular as it is today. Debate itself is just a theatre 9 times out of 10, but at least it's usually harmless, not so much when reactionaries start getting a wider audience & an appearance of legitimacy from it.

      However, as the impartial administrator, I can't really say that it's necessary to keep trying to educate Trump supporters in hopes that they'll finally see the truth and move away from the racist bleached orange.

      Yeah, I get that.

      What worries me in general is that the GOP candidates seem to be getting nuttier & nuttier.

      I appreciate that, it's actually pretty rare I log in to find updates from Wikia that aren't related to either someone I've pissed off or a thread like "Why do Avatar people have blue & green eyes?" popping up.

      I understand that sentiment, there was actually a point in which I deleted one of my responses, thinking it might be best if I just ignored it, & certainly would've been easier. But the idea of letting those statements go unchallenged didn't sit right with me. I'd realized a few posts in that Saitama was too deep into the Kool-Aid to persuade, but I wanted to send some kind of message. And on a more petty note, I'd found his tendency to prod me into TL;DR debates bordering on irritating before this, so I did rather enjoy being able to flip the tables.

      Seriously, where you keep finding the energy to continue debating these kind of issues baffles me :-p

      A deep well of rage.

    • Myeah, this is my story sandbox wiki -- you never would've guessed that by it's name, right?

      Bwa, we don't get a lot of complaints in general, but there have been some - as you know, since you have the tendency to reply to those reports as well :-p

      Hahaha, deep well of rage, I can see that. Just don't waste your time on it too much. Some debates just can't be won because the other party refuses to listen.

    • I thought it was about Jimmy Carter, actually.

      I come because they amuse me, I stay because I don't understand why they didn't post the link if they wanted me to get in trouble for something.

      I've actually been trying to scale back my posting recently, because I've just got too much shit to do. But since I prioritize my posting depending on how much I have to say on the topic, it winds up being mostly arguments anyway.

    • Hehehe, fair enough. I do admit that reading your arguments is often funny to do, especially when you can just see them fall in a trap :-p just do me a favor and make sure that you keep the "cursing" to a minimum. You n know how sensitive people can be 9_9

    • That's good to hear, I usually assume they're only funny to me & a pain in the ass for everyone else.

      I have been wondering recently if I should scale back my usage of sentence enhances, but it's weird because I only started once I realized nobody else was keeping their posts G-rated.

    • I'd advice you to keep your posts G-rated the moment you really get into an argument with someone. When they can't win against you by talking, they can report you and if you then have used some "cursing", then that's an easy reason target.
