    Civility? If there is anything that we have learned from the Civil Rights movement, it is that irrational anger towards groups we hate is a wonderful thing!

  2. atheist says

    I dislike the pretense that one is overly concerned about civility. If one is having a conversation with others where there is basic respect present then “civility” will be created organically. If one is having a conversation where basic respect is not present then a forced “civility” will accomplish nothing useful.

    Wow, I can’t believe I had a problem with ALL of the points in that well-meaning-but-misguided effort.

    Civility is a good thing, but it doesn’t mean squat when you’re dealing with consistently uncivil opponents. It also doesn’t mean squat when you make it all about superficial rules like this, while ignoring much deeper and more destructive forms of incivility, like lying and manipulation.

    First of all, it seems stereotyping is a-ok in the world of Physioprof:

    Like anyone gives a single flying fucke about some goddamn austrofrench cheese-eating aristocrat fuckebagge’s motherfucken name???????

    I don’t think I need to articulate further what’s wrong with that sentence.

    Secondly, it’s “dumb shit.” Two seperate words. It’s not a noun. I’m not sure what your problem is with civility, but with the state of your grammar, I’d say it’s the least of your concerns.

    Grammar is for fuckenardes.

    I will be polite once, then any further civility is only earned.

    I promise I will not tolerate ignorant asshats who only want to destroy people in sacrifice to their selfish delusions.

    My goodness gracious. I, for one, am absolutely appalled at the current state of intertoobz conversation. There are far too many people who answer deliberate, bald faced lies, with mountains of data and copious links to more date and analysis supporting their positions and demolishing the asshat’s. This results in a lot of wasted time.

    Never say, “Please read the linked article, think about it. examine your position vis-a-vis these DOCUMENTED facts and rejoin our discussion”, when a simple, brief, “Fuck you, you fucking troll piece-of-shit.” will suffice.

  8. NoAssume says

    @Democommie: OH GODS NO. (or are you being satirical? Or is the good Comrade being satirical?) I agree that wounded calls for ‘civility’ are often totally pathetic and/or a red herring, and anger can be empowering, but I also think that one should generally err on the side of gently encouraging restraint when one can stomach it.

    Furthermore, it’s not conducive to actually reading what somebody is saying all the way through.
