    Part 2 - 3) Because I want to have a dialog rather than a debate, nothing ever actually gets deliberated or considered, discussed, what have you. It just gets battled over.

    Because I’m what is referred to as coach (I work in industrial safety), what I do for a living relies almost entirely on my capacity listen, to empathize, to understand the other person's view, etc., and I fear that the antagonistic and demeaning air of this place (the "forge" of reason indeed; I happened to be fond of "hear the other side" when the vote to modify the site's slogan came about) is completely corrosive to that, so it's best that I keep it out of my life.

    Sadly, this site has a severe problem, but as we both well know, we can't ever correct a problem if we can't even admit that the problem exists.

    Part 1 - I appreciate that, Chuck. And yeah, I'm pretty much done with this place. I think I've gotten as much as I can get from it given the overall negative and combative atmosphere that kind of taken over in the last couple of years. In the beginning it was pretty fun to get downright muddy and dirty while arguing over this or that, and eventually that actually gave way to trying to make the conversations more productive and interesting. But nowadays it's just too easy to get all worked up when it seems like someone is speaking to you like you're an idiot. So I think I'm through using the energy it takes to contribute because:

    1) It happens ALL THE TIME that people go right past anything that's said and jump right to "you don't know how to reason properly", "you can't grasp the simplest and most basic concepts of logic", etc

    2) It's mostly the site's highest representatives that do it the most and the loudest
