Mostly because I hate watching arguments devolve into a mess of cursing and name-calling.
I hate it, hate it, hate it. Cursing, name calling, and trash talking are what you do in a fight. We're not about to get into a fist fight. This is the internet. We couldn't get into a fist fight if we wanted to.
I'm not going to sit here and sound like a pompous idiot trying to go into the ~art of arguing~ but if dissecting a person's argument and pointing out the illogical fallacies with the hope that they realize what they did wrong won't do a damn thing, what will cussing them out and ending everything you type with "???????????????????" like you're trying to be obnoxiously sarcastic do?
I love you guys but my goodness. When it comes to people who aren't willing to change in their convictions, NO MATTER WHAT, you leave them alone. If you can't convince them, you move along and wait until something gets them in real life so they can learn that way because, sometimes, that's the only way.
Besides, it saves keystrokes, energy, and time.
