Internet Arguing Fail by Thomas-C Internet Arguing Fail by Thomas-C
Cuz thats what you do when you have no more come backs :lol:

P.S- If they already have flawless grammar and spelling...maybe throwing in a couple of "darl"s or "hun"s to sound older and more sophisticated then the other person :#1:

EDIT: And I think people are missing the point of the statement lol. Just cuz someones gramar or spelling isn't perfect/2nd language/typo etc. does not mean that the view they have is invalid, if all you can pick on is their spelling then they have made a very good argument and obviously you have no relevant reply other than to change the subject and nit pick on minute details.

Think of it this way- IRL, If you are having a class debate...would it be ok to start correcting your opponents speech because they have a slight slur or a different accent, and completely ignore their argument? lol

but I liek doing that :noes:

I do tend to correct people's grammar in arguments, mainly because I hate it when native english speakers type in text type, but I usually follow up with a real argument afterwards

like, I don't go up and say UR GRAMAR SUX. U LOSE TEH ARGUMENT :dummy:

For example: I am so proud that anything that I say is gold and anything that other people say is shit no matter if I am the wrong one... The only way to "hack" me is to find my defects to prove that I'm faulty... So to correct my Grammar would be a way to get a oportunity to make a point... But correcting grammar doesn't work as a argument, that's just a gimmick, a dirty trick that is used to disqualify the opponent, and as you know disqualification works very well on a society... If you can't say anything smart, start to disqualify your opponents because you'll have the might of the society to do so... All that matters on "Flame Wars" is to "state your moral superiority" and to humiliate your "opponent"... That's all that matters on Internet Arguments... People feel anxious if they don't argue... I know that because I feel anxious... Because I couldn't master the "calm heart", I couldn't get rid of my voice that only distorts people and makes me ashamed... I am diseased...

jk =P. But I agree- correcting someones grammar/spelling in an argument or debate is weak, whether it's a flame war or not.

This is so true. I'm Dutch and I get compliments for my English on this site but each time I am arguing and I am apparently winning they change the subject to UR ENGLISH SUCKS!. :lol:

Reminds me when the topic South Park oc's came up, someone attacked me for it and I corrected them since their arguement didn't really make any sense. She then totally ignored the subject and started bashing my English. It was so sad.

I know someone who uses the term "Darling" or "Hun" when in an argument/discussion/debate with someone else over the internet xD

But yep, correcting their grammar is the best way of pissing them off or winning an argument :lol:
