Shit talking

Alright, I just want to say I really like this forum and the discussion here is great. But, now I keep seeing more and more shit talk. Yes, that's going to happen and yes, it will happen more as you gain members. But, is it necessary? Is there anybody else who feels the same way I do?

Like, say somebody argues with what I say. I'll just clearly state what I meant and problem is solved plain and simple. Where as with somebody else it's "**** you, you ****ing retard." and what does that help? Nothing. Everybody wants to look good and most people want to be liked, okay, that's understandable. I want to be liked too. But, calling people retards wont help.

So, I just wanted to let people know my thoughts on this. And, for the people that feel the same way, I think we should try work together in the future to cut this right down to a minimum. Yes, this is a Mixed Martial Arts forum but nobody will respect you if you don't have class. And, if you don't care about being liked or respected, that's your decision but you can still have respect for others.

the fact that we all love mma should bring us together and stop the fighting. sure we all disagree with each other, most of the threads are opinion based...it happens. but people gotta learn to disagree respectfully and back it up with intelligent thoughts. getting rid of spammers and giving out more warnings should do the trick. hopefully everyone starts getting along.

I agree 100%. If you can't support your side of an argument with logical reasoning and without resorting to attacking the other person's intellect/masculinity/race/etc. then you don't really have anything relevant to say so don't bother.

The best threads are when people think about what they say first and then say it. Who knows, you might even convince someone that you're right. Name-calling certainly won't accomplish that.

I agree 100%. Although I think people who troll need to be called out. Like those who go to the UFC Section or PRIDE Sections and say constantly how UFC(on UFC Forum)sucks and is second rate or vice versa. There just trying to cause problems without the language and I think thats just as bad.

I think the problem is that we're probably 99% guys here, and we're all competitive.

That and the fact that some people are just not intelligent enough to form logical arguements.

I think mods need to be a little more firm with those folks missing a chromosome. This place is a real success story so lets weed out the weak.
