    Does anyone even remember what the conflict is about?

    Or is this one of those "Hatfield vs. McCoy" things where nobody recalls why they're fighting, they're just carrying on the battle for the sake of "tradition"? :icon_shrug:

    That is a great attitude, the right one to have.

    IMO, these wars escalate because people are encouraged or feel compelled to take sides.

    As always, people should follow the zen example of TK: I don't hold it against people who are friends with posters who hate me for no reason.

    Follow my lead, everyone!

    OK, I've said my piece about forum wars and I think this thread has run it's course, so I'm going to un-sticky it.

    ya mean... richtig gesprochen.


    If you lay aside the common interest Chargers / football... and assume for a minute that the majority who invest time to write about this passion have at least acquired a basic knowledge and insight in it... what remains to a larger extent in the base competition for attention and air time here is one's relating personal experiences or trying to impress others with wit or humor.

    Unfortunately one of the easiest forms of comedy to enact involves someone else's pain. Let Wilma hit Fred over the head with a frying pan and hear a nice clang... it is somehow funny. Three Stooges, Mr. Bean, Jackass... etc. etc.

    What I am trying to say is that what is always will be. It is a prevalent characteristic of the social interaction in forums, like it or not. Some people are prone for setups... others will take advantage. To resist a cheap laugh at another's expense contradicts human nature... and there will always be those who dish out better than they receive.

    Probably a good idea. The flame wars here are, by the standards on the big political web sites, essentially spats, Concs family feuds. The real flame wars out there in the Neutral Zone are far more vicious, shading into sadistic stalking and cyber ax murders. They are pursued by the Ring Wraiths, not just nasty, ill tempered, tasteless orcses that like to twist our noses.
