Default Thoughts on E-Drama?

I'm really confused about this one. Some people just like to butt in on topics, and give their opinions about things. This is perfectly fine.

However, when OP or another person comes back and counters said person's opinions, this person comes back and OMG! WHAT IS HE TALKING ABOUT!!!!? and duly sits in front of the computer for... I dunno, hours?, and types a really epic multi-quoted, multi-answered reply for everything that got rebutted. Every answer is lovingly given a jab here, or a touch of sarcasm just to prove how intellectual they are (and how smarter they are than OP/Person, probably).

Now, I know I'm probably guilty of doing this a few times, but I always cooled down within a few hours, re-examined my post, and probably edited the whole thing out to apologize for being stupid. After all, opinions are just opinions, no?

So yeah, thoughts?

Personally, I don't like if a member bashes back about a opinion if they are the OP.
I mean seriously? You ask a question and we give you an opinion. It's not like we are saying we are correct and everyone else is wrong.

Like you said, if you feel you have bashed and have the guilty feeling about it. Going back to re-edit the post to sound more sincere is good. You at least know it was wrong to bash back at someone when it's an opinion.

Personally, I don't have the time and definitely cannot be bothered to argue with some stranger halfway across the world on an online forum, of all things.

Hell yes, I always hate it when a good discussion thread gets mauled by horrible drama.

Then the OP of those threads go on a ragefit about how everyone who posted are immature retards whilst oblivious (ignorant) to the fact that actual on-topic well-composed posts exist between the drama-queens' colorful bashings. >_> Then they carry on about how useless the thread is, while it could really have developed into a decent discussion.

Thank God for the computer screen, time to boost a bit of e-peen size amirite? >_>

I only retort to strictly opinion posts related to my own if they are just babbling nonsense. If it's a subject that has no right answer and is just "Oh, I like this because..." or "Oh, I hate this because..." kind of thing I'll rarely bark back at whoever questions my opinion. Far as responding to people who are giving their opinion while distorting facts, those people I'll chew out whenever possible.

Still, I've never gotten angry on this forum. I'll type profanity sometimes in my posts for effect but I'm in a pretty null state, believe me. I just like writing and replying to things that I already have a pre-built view on and it is very natural so I don't have to spend more than a couple minutes typing up a response even if it's paragraphs long.

Don't believe I've really spent much time retorting to anyone's posts in this forum if it wasn't related to Lunia though, heh heh.

I laugh when people break apart a post quote by quote and write a paragraph to argue each quote xD Its rather time consuming

A better word would be epic.

Anyway back to topic, e-drama is sort of like the rest of e things. People sometimes either have nothing better to do (which is sad) or never get to experience drama IRL (even sadder). So yeah that's about it. Sad people do stupid things. Why can't we be happy D:?

I am guilty of this. sometimes I have very little to do, or don't want to do anything but I am feeling up for some debating, you shouldn't delete your opinions you should realize that your opinions are your own and others will not always like them and will challenge you own them, you can put up a fight as long as you want to or just end it pc or non-pc (i like non-pc).


but people do care about their and other's opinions and will take it much too far. war far.

Ugh, i just went through a crap-load of e-drama between family on facebook. Honestly, i think that sometimes becomes the worst.

to sum the drama up:
Spoiler!


As for multi quote responses, I've done that quite a few times, but usually it's not drama related (not on my end at least) I try to leave them for debates where a poster makes a reply with multiple points and not replying like that tends to make me leave things out. (sometimes multiple parts of that multi-quote response are that i agree and why) But typically as soon as it turns to drama, i TRY to just leave. (although sometimes its more fun than a barrel of monkeys to sit there and read the hilarity that ensues
