  • Why do you people post?

    Wow so i have been getting alot of heat for some of my posts and i have to say Im surprised.

    The most common argument used to dispute me is: "Your only 19 you dont know what you are talking about"

    Listen intelligence has nothing to do with age. There are just as many stupid 30 or 40 year olds as there are stupid 19 year olds.

    I want to know why people keep making threads and then freak out when someone disagrees?

    I seriously think that you guys need to remember that we are all supposed to be mature gamers and are supposed to respect each other. Its easy to tell when you have won a debate cause people resort to personal attacks.

    First it was the cops page then it was the UN page. If you dont want to hear opinions that may differ from yours then dont start threads.

    How many stupid 19-year-olds do you think turn into non-stupid 30-year-olds?
    How many non-stupid 19-year-olds do you think turn into stupid 30-year-olds?
    What does that tell you about the prevalence of stupidity in 19-year-olds versus 30-year-olds?

    I understand your sentiment but I think your statement is wrong.

      I think you're both confusing stupidity with lack of wisdom.

          Chris, as I wrote to you in a PM, you have to also look at a person's replies/comments from a different angle, don't automatically make it seem that they are attacking you...come back with facts and opinions rather than say "you are confusing what i said." Explain to us what we said and what you meant to say.

          If you don't take the time, and don't present your ideas for these debates then, you are going to get responses that you may or may not like, and you are going to become more frustrated and overreact.

            Because, even after detailed explainations, you still continued to be hard headed about it. Which is what I did, and most others do at age 19... at age 19 you have all the answers, but none of the real world life experiences to back up your ideas... again, I was the same way at 19, and my father and older co-workers told me the same thing... one day... one day life experence will change your views... but your 19, you don't believe that.... nether did I.

            Enjoy knowing everything while you can, revisit this post in 10 years. ;)

                  It's also a matter of respect or should I say a lack of respect when someone disagrees with your opinions. You turn it into a personal attack against you and you begin to insult other peoples intelligence. Using terms like "ignorant, stupid and you should read some books". You are dealing with some of the most intelligent people I personally have ever had conversations with and I have been proven wrong more times than I can count by them but it takes a willingness to LISTEN to what someone is trying to say. I have also learned a great deal from some of the very people you insult. I have no problems admitting when I am wrong but I am also stead fast when I truly believe I am right but I always try to do it with respect until I am not shown any in return.

                  Edit: I think Magnum said it best when he mentioned life experience.

                        Don't let them get to you, Chris. Being 19 hardly invalidates your opinions or knowledge about the topics discussed here.

                        At least they will never hate you as much as they hate me :)

                              Anyways, I know what you mean, chris.
                              But see, I'm bad in a different way.
