What strikes me a lot in SC is that many of the regulars are motivated by winning arguments... There are obviously a lot of tactics to do this, not all of them are within the bounds of addressing the question, some involve personal insults and often go beyond what would be said face to face... But the most interesting aspect of this is that I dont think a single argument has been won despite the amount of effort poured into attempting to do so... if indeed anything can be won in this medium, by anyone. 1) As a poster, is this something that you do? 2) Is anyone comfortable with being proved wrong? If not, why not? 3) Does this attitude scare off people from the rest of the forums? 4) Is it posssible to win an argument, if so how? By which standards can we judge whether an argument has been won? 5) Has anyone ever won an argument in SC?
