Top Ten Annoying Things About Internet WarsTurkeyasylum
The Top Ten
Certain opinions don't deserve respect. Many people draw opinions based on what the media and their peers feed them, without thinking for themselves. Others draw opinions based on faulty logic--Nazis, for instance.
I may not always respect your opinion, but I will fight tooth and nail for your right to hold it, however flawed it may be. - PetSounds
Anyway, it's true that certain opinions don't deserve respect if backed up with stupid reasons.
At least one side of an Internet war is the psychopathic one, as in the type of person who treats a certain thing like a god (see serious Call of Duty fans for an example). These psychopathic sides get enraged by someone disagreeing with them, then they often call them out and irritate them, sometimes sending death threats in extreme cases. - Turkeyasylum
Problem is, the more you fight against an opinion, the more the opposer increases their affinity for the idea.
Also, most of them are over stupid things.
The key is imagining other people complexly and wholly, and also realizing that the way you see their irrationality may be the exact way they see you. - keycha1n
This happens all the time. People cling to their opinions like they think it's facts. I would respect your opinion if you respect mine. We don't all have to have the same opinion on one thing. Heck, I'll go ahead and say that you are free to debunk my opinion but don't be clinging to your own, and don't white-knight/cradle your friends who all have the same opinion.
Basically, if everyone had the same opinion on something, it's boring. - Nonpointed
Sifting through pointless gibberish could be entertaining. But yeah we can spend time to do something more productive. It's up to the person; there's no "right" or "wrong" choice.
Sure, the wars on the Internet may be quite hilarious, but that's all they provide. They contaminate YouTube, Wikia, Reddit, Tumblr, and many other Internet locations. When looking for useful information, it can be quite tedious. - Turkeyasylum
Serious topics are the best ground for a war, but sometimes the subject of argument is pointless.
I'm perfectly fine with someone who believes something that contradicts my beliefs, but I'm NOT fine with someone who attacks people they disagree with. Here's an example:
Eileen is a lesbian girl who comes onto the Internet. She meets Shannon, who she quickly becomes friends with. She tells Shannon about her orientation after a month of knowing her, then Shannon goes on a tangent about how her beliefs are "wrong".
Wars can engulf a whole community very quickly with a topic like this, with both people starting the war getting attacked because they, well, started the war, even if one side did nothing wrong in the first place. - Turkeyasylum
That depends on the approach of participating the war. Fighting on the Internet doesn't automatically make you "immature".
This is what I'm trying to say to all of those people, but no. I'm just me, so people don't listen - AnonymousChick
Even the 'mature' ones are still immature for participating.
When a war begins, sometimes I'm a little tempted to join a side (but 90% of the time, I do not). But people can start a subwar, which would be a war dedicated to having another group of people join the war. This causes more stress than anything on the Internet. - Turkeyasylum
I just grab the imaginary popcorn, sit back, and enjoy this war! - kaitlynrad11
I wonder what admin would say about this.
It's very easy to troll during an Internet war as you can troll as a member of the extreme side of either side of the war. Often, trolls can compose of some or most of one or both sides, - Turkeyasylum
This is the only bad thing about it, to be honest.
That's basically because of hypersensitivity.
There was a report a few years ago of a person comitting suicide around my area due to cyberbullying. People can end up in depression or can feel like they don't belong when they're criticized for their belief, And often, these people are genuine people who don't care about wars. That's the saddest part of it. - Turkeyasylum
An incredibly opinionated side with a ton of support function as Internet cops, who don't exorcise crime but overthrow legitimate opposing viewpoints. These are more likely to be Internet criminals as they don't respect anyone's opinions except their very own. - Nonpointed
I seem to be a thought police.
Stay calm and make your opponent brain dead. It's best to be psychopathic.
Fighting with idiots will only drag you to their level of idiocy.
The longest thread ever was a 2010 subreddit titled "Is Wario Libertarian? " It had 12,000+ pages and moderators locked it to prevent further discussion. You won't find it because it was deleted. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
It's up to them if they'll get hurt.
It's all hilarious and exciting, but after a couple of hours it's boring. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
