StudlyScrewRite said Most gay men are an unhappy lot whose only pleasure is running down other people, usually with name calling or personal insults.
Name calling and personal insults are things to which small-minded people resort. I post on and read several web sites on several subjects. My perception is that name calling and personal insults are not more prevalent here than on sites than on sites with a significantly smaller percentage of gay posters.
If you're smart, there's rarely if ever a need to resort to such tactics. If you really want to get someone, simply point out the flaws in his arguments. Sometimes all you need to do is ask a few questions, simple questions. When someone can't answer those simple questions, you know you've won. If that person simply ignores your simple questions because he can't answer them, you've proved all you needed to prove.
There are plenty of people here who rarely if ever insult other posters or call them names. You may not notice them as much. I think they're actually the majority here, but many of them are not among the most frequent posters and perhaps they're generally less noticeable.
