    Attacking The Issues Together

    I, personally, don't like personal attacks because the only thing they accomplish is counter-productivity. Whenever I present an argument, (particularly controversial ones), and someone chooses to attack me personally, I know that they are either: ignorant, stupid, or both...

    True

    Hell. If you don't like my straightwardness. Don't bother to read my stories.  I don't like personal attack on me either. If you personally attack me. I will delete your comments and I will block you. So you can't attack me. Period. Thanks.

    It's Juvenile

    If I disagree with what you say, I may tell you so, but I will do so respectfully and won't name-call and get personal. I don't use personal attacks as a way of communicating. And if you choose to personally attack me, the only response you will get is me walking away. I have...
