I will bail if it is obvious it is just going to end up in a fight or if someone is baiting me with their comments.

I'll leave the conversation if the attacks or name calling begins. I won't put up with that from anyone. I think name calling is so immature. If we can't agree to disagree, then the conversation ends.

I've already made my comment on Bud's post. I'm tired of listening to people's ****. It's come to a point where a person can't even choose a political party, because let's face it, the fighting is 99% about politics.

Bud is an ****. Not as much my opinion, but his own opinion about himself.

Yes exactly! They don't produce anything or make any money. They basically just deal in other people's money while making a lot of their own money and getting a retirement fund that the rest of us could only dream about. I'd better bail now haha before one of us mentions the T word (hehe)

If I feel that I lack the ability to keep calm and keep my big mouth shut I will walk away if someone pisses me off. It is more for my benefit than it is theirs.

I agree although on rare occasions someone will get a basic comment, often something I've said in humour and turn it into a long back and forth conversation so they can use it to reiterate their position on something controversial, have the last comment and use me as the vehicle for all that. When I sense those, I bail immediately.

I don't call it bailing..

I call it knowing when to quit (sometimes not to even bother starting) because the other person keeps going on and on, like a rabid chihuahua barking at his shadow..

In response to “What is?

to be rude and attack the other person directly instead of retort. Worst tactics include: namecalling (LIBTARD!!) Deathwishing, Threatening with bull, Making horrible jokes, mocking upbringing, forcing untrue stereotypes (feminists get this ALLLL the time!) "Feminazi, You want men to die!" I just spent two years morning my father thank you

In response to “to be rude and attack the other person...

Retorting can be good for the person retorting... After that...hopefully they can come to a calm place...and either take a moment to say something nice about the other persons POV...yes, there IS that...and if that fails...agree to disagree...

Janet...some people come with so much of a different background than you do...but if they live in this world it's difficult not empathize with yours.

If this fails... All I can say is that some people are SO BITTER and SO ANGRY for some reason, there really is nothing one can do... It's too bad they take their opinions online instead of a Therapy Group...where they should be.

What do you think?

I agree, but also sometimes when you're upset, it's better to walk away instead of saying something your might regret later.

But I always like to try to end all negative convos on positive notes or attempting to find some common ground of some sort.
