1.People who resort to name-calling
When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. -Socrates
One of the things people notice about me is that I focus on the arguments that someone presents and not the person; also known as playing the ball not the man. Of course, I’m not perfect but I do make an effort to stay civil in what I write.When a person is name-calling, they have abandoned intelligent conversation in favor of emotional outburst. In an indirect way, they are informing you that they are not interested in problem solving, compromise, personal improvement, meaningful debate or mutually beneficial conversation.
Experience has taught me that not being civil almost always derails any rational exchanges. I find this behavior highly offensive and have to stop myself from responding with the same tone of the original poster. I've always believed that people use name-calling as an argument when they cannot support their point of view and wish only to intimidate their opponents.Name-calling is one of the most common tactics people use to hurt others or disparage them. It often occurs when someone has an emotional argument to make with little or no supporting logical argument.When people don't have any substantive arguments, they resort to name-calling.
I have to admit some of the troll questions are hilariously funny and I often enjoy them. But the majority of them are blatantly racist and often sexist.
3. Racist People
If the first words out of your mouth are to cry ‘political correctness!’, … chances are very, very high that you are in fact part of the problem. - N.K. Jemisin
Language has long played a role in race relations. The words one uses have the power to offend others or honor them. Given the importance of language, it’s no wonder that in the 21st century, Americans still debate whether slurs such as the N-word should be used, the appropriate labels for racial minority groups or which expressions to avoid because they have roots in racism. Using inoffensive language isn’t just about political correctness, it’s about valuing others and building bridges with people from a variety of ethnic backgrounds.
