GAGgers have you ever gotten into a fight with another member on this site?

I've been some internet fights, sure. I try and stay away from getting too heated though. It's not worth getting angry over.
Then again, it also depends what you mean by fights. There are different types.
1.) The Good: Engaging in a healthy debate with someone. Expressing personal thoughts with evidence to try and show the other person your view.
Frequency: Happens quite a bit. I don't mind getting into these when they happen because healthy debates help me out as a person see different views better. These are good for GAG.
2.) The Bad: Engaging in a debate where the person halfway does ad hominem arguments in their opinions. They may stray from the subject material and throw in off topic stuff.
Frequency: Happens often but not as much as healthy debates in my opinion. I'll respond to any points made in the claim, ignoring ad hominem parts to an extent. I try not to resort to the same level since personal attacks just weaken an argument.
3.) The Ugly: Engaging in a true internet fight that is mostly insults. Anything from name calling (i. e. Moron, idiot, faggot, etc.) to generally insulting responses with no value fall into this.
Frequency: I've dealt with 3 or 4 people who have done this to me on GAG. I try to defend myself without resorting to insults myself and will report the antagonistic bait posts. I'm not dealing with that crap lol. It is best just to flag and move on after a point.
Ooh and special shoutout to the only person I blocked so far. After some other insults, namecalling, and then deciding to make a rude meme out of my profile pic, he officially made it on to my block list the other day. :D1
I can't count the number of times and the number of people... Im currently in one right now... and the idiot blocked me just so they could get the last say... so i assume i won that one?
I mean... I've gotten into it with @Mesonfielde @dangerDoge @BertMacklinFBI but arguing with guys is no fun... it ends too quick... and thats how we make friends... lol2
Yes I have xD2
On my first account in the early days I got into a few arguments but in the end I decided I was been negatively affected by getting involved rather than having some temporary feeling of being proud of myself for standing up for myself in a row - So my peace of mind always comes first and if I even get a sniff of a impending row, I will walk away.1
Some people have tried to get into one. Generally one of these questions about subjects where people have their principles that they defend with lots of emotion.
Like the freedom to carry an arm, or oil pollution / use of fossil fuels. Or some war their country is fighting :-(
I generally first try to be kind and ask why the person is so uncomfortable about me saying something. But when they don't stop fighting, I simply stop answering their comments.
Generally that works. I've never blocked a user :D0
Tons of times though I normally do not start them, most of the time other people do though I wouldn't call it fighting since I am usually just sitting here relaxing playing along lol, I have to admit I somewhat enjoy it, though putting annoying members in their place is always satisfying.1
Define fight. I've never been emotionally unhinged when having an argument on GAG. Not really. I've felt passionate about some of the issues I talk about, but that ddoesn't mean I'm fighting. Nor does the pervasive use of curse words.0
A few. Generally I try not to though because some people have little to no interest in having civil and reasonable discussions, so in most cases, I just don't bother.1
I stop fights before they start. I like to have intelligent debates though I welcome those with different opinions than my own1
Several times but not for long. A couple of days tops. Nothing extreme. I think we all have had arguments online.0
Every now and then, but it's okay. It's part of life.3
well wouldn't say it's a fight because I try to avoid those... but it can happen that a troll or idiot comments on my opinions, then I'll discuss for a bit but if I see that I'm talking to a wall or that he is just trolling then I don't waste any more time on him0
Yes I punched someone over the internet2
No not me ever. I do not ever want to be on any site where people fight.. I would just leave it if that were the case.. I like this site a lot and have always felt very welcome here.. it makes me smile every time I visit here0
People live close enough to get into fights? Maybe i'm too new here.2
Nope, some people are quite opinionated and have to be right, but I have never had anyone say anything nasty to me.
Overall I think people are pretty easy going.0
oodles. a lot of people on here can't take any sort of criticism well or opinions that disagree with them.0
Nope. I've had people mad at me that rage, so I just keep responding with insulting nonsense until they wear themselves out. I wouldn't call it a fight because I'm never engaged in it, I don't even read what they write, and it doesn't bother me at all so it's not a fight... I even wrote a program to do it for me and have had people argue with a computer program for several hours while I went off to go grocery shopping, for a run, or to wash my laundry. It's sort of funny. :D0
Unfortunately, yes. People only want to hear what they want to hear, you know?1
No, not really. If they use aggressive vocabulary or give offensive opinions, I just block them. I'm not here to change anyone.0
No, when you get to be as 'old' as I, the one rule you know to live life by is 'to choose your battles'
Arguing on a net site is the epitome of wasted energy0
There is a lot of trolls on here sadly. I come on here to try help
People but get abuse sometimes. X0
Like nearly every day lol:P0
only verbally they are now blocked. since then its been pieceful0
All the time0
Nope, never that serious over the Internet.0

Lol I don't think I can even take this question seriously... All the time. All the time 😂
I would have to say the worst one was when I and another GAG member got into it... Shee left an irrelevant opinion to a question and was trying to be a smartass so I stood up for the QA and asked her what was the purpose of it and that resulted into her leaving a rude comment insulting me and calling me out of my name as well as leaving this rude message (below) and then blocking me so she could have the last word 😒
"Enough of your disgusting, dramatic, hypocritical mouth on my post. Don't approach me with that entitled attitude then maybe we can have a discussion. But if you choose to be a nasty, stereotypical ghetto black bitch then you don't get sh*t from me. You're already average with f*cked up hair. At least try to have a more appealing personality, sweetie."0
Yuuuus I stupid 27 y/o guy Oh and another white supremacist guy but apparently I'm not the only one who doesn't like him.0
so many times XD
I hate arguing tho, so I just let them talk and I say thanks after they insult me, ain't nobody got time fo that0
lol, many many times.0
Yes an emotional! ;p0
I wouldn't call it a fight, more of a heated argument, and yeah, its inevitable. I am pretty strong in my opinions and when I see ignorance (in my opinion) I can;t help but set them straight (give my opinion). But there are some completely ridiculous arguments I have gotten into on this site.0
Yeah there's always some dumbass who needs to open his mouth or they get offended by your viewpoint and will say something. I just ignore it now but I've been in a couple0
Multiple arguments. Sometimes people dont understand that we have different perspectives and feelings towards things. You can debate it but it will get heated or come off as personal when you make that person's feelings seem wrong because yours as 'right' in your perspective. This could go as far as people's personal experiences to how sensitive some subjects are towards people.0
Ummm yes just like 2 days ago I had this huge fight with some psycho all because I didn't find a girl she thought to be pretty pretty. And even after blocking her she made like several other accounts and kept harassing me.0
Oh you bet.0
I've had many heated debates with people here.0
hahahahahaha. no. never. ;)0
No, I just stick to myself. Their have been a couple of people that have tried to start an argument with me on an opinion I posted a while back. Lmfao all they did was try to insult me and type in CAPS. Pffft. 😂😂😂
I don't care 💁0
Yes, I do not think it's a website thing I think it's an Internet thing. Some people like to start drama0
Humm no, not really.0
Nope, I haven't.0
Every single day0
