    that's absolutely true too and happens quite often to me.

    I prefer to debate in order to understand the other person's perspective and to explore the ideas more thoroughly. That doesn't mean I'll never "go in for the kill", but that is not the style of debate that I prefer. It is much more enjoyable when neither side feels like they have to win.

    I'm not one to just ignore someone being obnoxious, unless I consider them to be a complete idiot. I've considered making an exception to that rule, though, for people who seem to be just trying to make an impression on an audience, and who think they can therefore get away with talking in circles, and other techniques that the casual observer of the exchange wouldn't notice, unless they really looked closely at the debate. I also lose respect for people that go back and edit their posts well after I have responded to them. ( I don't always quote people exhaustively to prevent that. )
    I try to ignore, but sometimes have to respond. Do people really edit their posts a la 1984? I do this to correct spelling errors.

    As far as debating goes, I'll stick with my point for as long as possible, seeking to correct any misunderstandings. I do change my stance but only after a long drawn out debate (much to the obvious frustration of others). Nevertheless I am capable of changing.

    This is a big difference between P's and J's I guess. I tend to just spontaneously switch sides.

    Yeah. I'll wait for a second and figure out which side is being under-represented, then I argue it to the death. Once I finish, I'll switch to another under-represented view.

    It's one at a time with me, though.

    I am not a fan of debating with most people, though it seems that many take an expression of disagreement as an intention to debate. I'll only be interested in continuing it if I think I can see something new and the other person is being rational. Many enter debate, fragile ego and hurt feelings in hand, and will be driven by those needs first. I can't be bothered because they'll call day night if it suits their aim to be considered . . . at which point I lose any shred of respect for them and return their level of poop on a platter to get them out of my presence immediately. That is not so much a kill as a toss.

    I really enjoy debate with individuals that can clearly state their points. I typically go straight for the kill when it's someone I wouldn't want to discuss with, in depth.

    Same.

    But sometimes I enjoy it with people who can't clearly state their points, especially if I swayed them in any way.
