I see a lot of people generalizing every kind of argument to "chest thumping" and " immaturity". No. Sorry, but you'll never get anywhere in life if you can't stand up for your sake and argue about it.


Arguing is one thing and healthy way of resolving any issue! I agree. But to result in name calling and putting someone down is what I'm getting at. Telling someone to hurt themselves or others is not healthy! I'm saying that if you can be above it instead stooping to your attackers level then it's better to be the bigger person. But nonetheless thank you!

Arguing or discussing in a civil manner are different.

Arguing I feel has a negative connotation compared to say... debating or discussing.

Well Kasama, a debate is arguing. Literally. A debate is just the proper word for what many people call an argument. Discussion on the other hand, is not primarily based on opinions or trying to prove your point.

I agree with you, a debate is a more appropriate way to say argumeng but depending on where you draw your definition.

It could be considered negatively. Arguments are usually emotion driven, right? You wouldn't refer to two of your family members quarrelling as a debate. You would call it a family argument.

Informal tone and the fact that you wouldn't consider it serious.

A debate has a more serious tone and requires some form of intellectual capability.

Everyone and anyone can argue, not everyone knows how to debate.

Maybe discussion doesn't really fit, my mistake.

That's also my meaning as well. It's how you decide to carry out the "argument" it's about tact and yes where to draw the line!

Bumping for what I've read in forums over the last few months. So many need to see that if you can reply to someone that's negative with something positive they have nothing else to go on. If you don't give a Debbie downer a reason to keep the argument/debate going it makes you better person. So many are ready to be ugly to someone to make themselves feel good. I'm not saying you have to be nice to everyone, I'm saying that if feed it then itll keep coming back for more. ;) Thanks again for the idea sizzle!
