On Topic: I dislike arguments. I like debates. There need to be rules. There needs to be no gratuitous insults. If insults or jokes further the debate, so be it. If they are an attempt to harass someone or prove one's own perceived superiority, you.
I want an argument. The nastier the better. Subject-irrelevant
I want a nasty argument - It should relate to a pre-existing stance
I want an argument with an edge- no ad hominem, though.
I hate to admit it, but I am more attracted to a dispute.
It doesn't matter to me if it is an argument or neutral, if the subject is interesting
I won't participate in a dispute unless I am awfully sure, and so I find arguments limiting
I tend to avoid most disputative threads.
I despise argumentative threads. They suck.
