Ohhh, I know what you mean. I don’t even reply to those divisive Facebook statuses even when they’re really, really rude or disrespectful unless I know the person really well. They drive me absolutely crazy, but I figure they’re doing it for attention, why give them what they want?

Honestly, thats when you just say that you’re an adult and you do not engage in petty arguments online. I have a vey good saying to explain the situation, but it could be offensive so I wont post it. I agree with lilyfaith. Why even get involved?

I am like lilyfaith in that I actually try to stay away from that as much as possible because discussions on certain topics just don’t go anywhere. People usually won’t agree to disagree either. Sorry you went through that. I too dislike when that happens.

I, personally, love debating because most of the time I do learn something new and might even expand my horizons (though I typically won’t do it on Facebook) but nasty, snarky, just trying to aggravate arguing is something else entirely.  Ugh.  That’s so obnoxious!  I’m sorry.  🙁 

ETA: Just had to google Godwin’s Law.  I didn’t know what that was either and I can totally see it being true.

If anyone ever posts something controversial on FB or instigates a heated discussion, I back away … fast. FB is just not the place to comment on such things, you know? Plus, because it’s online and not face-to-face, people are just more apt  to be snarky because they’re hiding beind a computer screen. I just don’t see the point in arguing on FB!
