Explained by LorraineTwevlehundredRaineTwelvehundred...

I get sick of arguments here or in real life. Usually walk away to a more harmonious location.

I enjoy a good "debate" with opposing views. Sometimes, my perception can be changed if presented with credible facts I wasn't aware of. Sometimes I can cause people to take another look at their own perception of what they think. Nobody really wins an "argument".

I leave the arguing to other people.
I have better ways to spend my time.

I never feel the need to have to prove anything to anybody... other than myself.

Plenty of things, I see no reason to back down, me not wanting to back down from a debate is not a bad thing to do.

I disagree.
Ignorance and naivety are both due to a lack of education.
Stupidity is continuing to act contrary to education.

A child may touch a hot stove because they are ignorant (how hot the stove is, or how much it will hurt).
Once they learn that lesson, they are stupid if they continue to touch hot stoves.

I do my damndest to stay away from that stuff. Like Jim, I occasionally don't mind a nice debate but I back off from any arguments. If I wanted to argue? I would just bug my ex wife. I'm not into arguing....man. It has no place here as a website should be enjoyable for all.

HaHa i usually stay close to former loves one is a carpenter I call upon for all my work. Another I see sometimes and I can tell he is happy to see me by his eyes. One has moved to Spain so him i don't expect to see ever. I do talk to all by Facebook. but my ex husband I have never seen since court. Think he is afraid of me, cause I would probably just say hi. long time. (eek)

Sometimes I will walk away, as winning isn't my top priority, but sometimes people need to take a stand against vicious people. I don't like to argue either, but when pushed too far, I won't back down.

You can learn a lot from a good debate. Sometimes I feel confident in my position but at other times I want a 'sanity check'.

Saying "you're right" and then walk away is the quickest way to make the other person stop arguing. If it really matters, just don't say it.
