Journal raydobbs's Journal: Debate versus personal attacks

In a professional debate, when you break down to calling the other side's advocate names - your side loses. Sadly, that's all that seems to be left of Slashdot's intellectual crowd - defend an 'unpopular' position, and you get called all sorts of names. Really takes the fun out of a spirited discussion - and makes the whole community seem like a lost cause. Disabled comments because I really don't want your opinion on what you think my mother's relations were with the neighbor's dog or shit like that - keep it to yourself.
