The Eight-Fold Path of TV-Humiliation

Recommended Posts

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, I feel so enlightened that you have felt us worthy to share your perspective.

Is it their reluctance to be wrong, or others insistance on being right ?

Phase four..?
Really? It was intended as phase 6!
It was just a question, so good thing you clarified your intent.

To be fair to the OP this thread title shouldn't have the words TV in it cos not only do forummers here behave like this here they do that in other places too in fact all forums with heavy traffic have ppl that behave exactly like that it's just human nature.

Never thought of that. You might be right there.m

There's a classic No.3 that posts regularly. If his responses/denials/accusations have less than three irrelevant questions in every post, I feel kind of cheated. whistling.gif

It's not just internet forums, it's about human interaction. The study of styles of debate and argument styles are well defined and documented.

On a side note, I thought I'd made a mistake once, but I was wrong.coffee1.gif

Partly true, but the interweb really changes the nature of human interaction.

I can say in 10 seconds what it would take me 20 minutes to type. And during those 10 seconds, I can read feedback from facial expressions and body language, and head off in an entirely different direction based on that feedback.

Not to mention the anonymity afforded by a keyboard.

Are you sure you were wrong? That doesn't sound like you.

yes human interaction but there is a difference in human behavior on the internet vs face to face and ppl tend to be more civil face to face as not doing so could sometimes erupt into something physical. Also ppl tend to get into more intimate/intellectual discussions with strangers like i am sure most of us are here with one another. You wouldn't do that outside the internet.

I read SOME of the OP and only thought: no different than real life, just a whole lot worse online for more than one reason (nature of the beast?)

Step 9 can go two ways:

9.1 The thread descends into a diatribe on how immigrants are taking over the UK.

9.2 It is somehow all Obama's fault

I honestly think ThaiVisa would do well to get rid of the General Forum altogether. It's mostly aggressive, arrogant and nasty and it's the first sub-forum most site visitors go and it does not provide a warm welcome.

It's a shame, because the other sub-forums are quite the opposite. Friendly, informative, fun and interesting.

This is not aimed at the OP by the way, or any particular regulars here.
