I used to love a good, juicy controversial issue. The points raised on both sides prompting you to think and reassess what you know about the issue. The debate.
Nowadays a just hate it. It just seems to bring out the ugliest in people. And what with social media, the most ill-informed ignoramuses have a platform and a means to connect with other such douchebags.
Its makes sigh with exasperation. I can't deal with it. I either need to switch off the computer or scurry off to a safe corner of the internet like my favourite beauty website or blogger (of course) and this isn't good! I'm not challenging myself to look at the issue at hand in a subjective (well, as subjective as I can get) way, I'm not researching matters that wouldn't have occurred to me otherwise. In short, I'm stunting myself.
So I guess need to come up with a way to tune out the losers in order to hear the intelligent discussion. Tips from you guys would be helpful :)
Anyone feel me on this? Or am I the one being intolerant...?
