We just had a very civil (well, by SF standards) exchange in CE. Not that anything was accomplished, but at least everyone was communicating. Downright enjoyable.

What's the difference?

Are you serious? A significant proportion of the stuff you said to Rach today was simply a regurgitation of the same vile vitriol that had people on here yesterday calling for you to be banned or timed out.

Then, when I actually tried to engage you respectfully, you had nothing but nastiness for me.

This is quite the little witch-hunt you goons have organized for yourselves.

(Here, I'll save you the trouble of answering this question: Sure gay people can get married, they just need to marry someone of the opposite sex.)

Also, be careful with that "no one" stuff. Do you know what happens to gay people in Iran and Saudi Arabia?

Who gets to define these "fundamental human rights"? Isn't that part of the problem? All these other people that disagree with you are getting to do the defining, and you have no better justification to be the definer than they do. In fact, in our paradigm of representative democracy, they have a better justification, i.e. majority position. Think on that and then think of how dismissing this concept would put everyone on the same level, in attempting to construct a society and/or change certain aspects of one.

So I'm making calm posts in earnest, and your only answer is to mock me = "civil" and "enjoyable"? I could stipulate that you no doubt enjoyed it, but civil?

Normally, I'd not bother with this crap, but as you've already attempted to get me banned today...

Pio, I meant what I said. I really did enjoy the discussion, and I wasn't mocking anyone. I don't know if you ever venture over to democraticunderground.com (probably not), but trust me, you guys don't even know what a heated discussion is. You should see some of those dems go at each other, sometimes it can peel your eyeballs.

Done.

Edit... it was a joke, but it won't be taken as a joke by the person at whom the joke was directed. SO, withdrawn.

Bringing this to the attention of the mods.

Every gridlock argument in CE occurs between people who believe in natural human rights and those that don't. The pragmatists can argue amongst themselves what will best serve humanity, and the rights-believers can step in every once in a while and tell them they don't really have that authority, but until the fundamental disagreement is resolved, all the conversation that takes place on top of it is pretty stupid. IMO.
