I wonder .....

I don't get it.... been reading discussions (if I may call them that) on the blogsphere, and I am gobsmacked.... Can't we discuss things without snapping at each other ?!?! Can't we voice different opinions without biting each other's heads off ?!?! Can't we disagree without being so aggressive ?!?!? Sarcasm... hostility.... mockery... it's all there ... and it's awful ... I wonder if these "discussions" took place in real life ... would those involved be behaving in the same way ?!??! I wonder ......

i wonder ya me , if you were talking about something i had seen before.

well i hate arguments , because it brings hatred , even if i can't hold it and stop arguing,

prophet Mohamed (PBUH) said a hadith by what it means that about elgadal thing , But i guess unless if it was in religon and should be done in an adequate manner , because at the end your motive should be fine , not only preserving and keeping up your ego whether you are right or wrong.

I have been seeing actually some arguments in the real life when i worked on issues that i may call not essential , like football players and which is best and i was astoonished that people were going to make a fight on that one day ! but any way it worths to try to be ok in arguing or even leave if not essential or importnat because of its reward

well, that happens, unfortunately...

in real life, not that much i guess. it's just that some of these people only have the courage or can only have the freedom to express themselves thru writing.

well, just my two cents worth.

thanks a lot, Me, for stopping by my blog and taking time leaving a comment. have a great week! ;)

I'm 41 years old and I've never had anyone talk to me in person the way some people have in online forums. Maybe the relative anonymity of being online encourages people to act in a way they know they shouldn't, but wish they could?

I have to say, the most abusive people seem to congregate on the same blogs, though... where they spend all their time abusing each other! On most blogs, there's just a little rudeness once in a while, nothing too bad.

Yep roora, I think I am talking about something you've seen ;-)

Bokbok, yep you're right, I guess some people wouldn't have the courage to do something like that in real life.....
Thanks for stopping by here as well :-) see you around your blog soon again...

Welcome to my blog Craig...this thing of anonymity encouraging "people to act in a way they know they shouldn't, but wish they could" is sooo true... but in the end...even if the others don't know them... they know themselves and they know what they've been saying... doesn't that bug them ?

Mesh keda ya Do ? It's awful...feel free to use whatever you want of my blog as links on your blog ya gamila
We Rabena yehdy :-)

Girls, excluding Craig of course, gentleman.

First to the girls.
I guess we all got a taste of the same medicine. Thing is from my point of view. I hate arguments more than anyone can ever imagine. But sometimes you just cannot see something wrong and be silent about it, like falshood or wrong misconceptions about religion. Where other opinions are concerned, everyone has the right to express themselves as long as they are not being hurtful or rude i believe. So far I haven't been through so much agitation in my entire life more than i have from one single blogger and his/her topics. Mostly concerning religion. Correct me if i am wrong. When Islamic thoughts and concepts are badly tampered with, I believe that a true Moslem cannot just walk away. Something positive with proof has to be written to refute wrong concepts. At least for none moslems to know that this is not the true essense of Islam. This was how it all started out with me personally.

But what i realized is some people really just do not want to seem wrong, no matter what, even if it is at the expense of ruining the image and essences of the most beauiful aspects of religion and human rights of freedom and justice.

I'd like u to know that I was not being disrespectful. I meant no harm at all in anything i said. and i do not wish to continue the discussion any further at haal's blog. You asked me a question there and my answer is a very long one but since u are Christian, it will require lots of reading in Islam and having conversations with Moslem scholars from u before I say anything for you to fully understand what i mean. And i cannot ask you to do that, it maybe too much to ask.

A democratic government for me is one that cannot be in existence today unless so much reform takes place in the hearts of those who rule and the hearts of all or at least most mankind. Democracy means so much Craig. It existed long long time ago to the fullest, but slowly and gradually disappered as people's faith got shaken.

Hi Dalulla,

I didn't consider anything you said to be rude or disrespectful. SOmetimes discussions get a little hot. I did think maybe you thought I was part of the "opposition" in the discussion, so you treated me that way. But that's no big deal, I do that too from time to time when I feel like everyone in a discussion is against me :)

I am glad you understood i am not against you or anyone for all i care. Every one of us just has differences in thought and opinion and i think that is alright as long as no one says something abusive to the other:-)
