GUEST,Futwick BS: Obsession with being 'right' (139* d) RE: BS: Obsession with being 'right' 19 Apr 13

From what I see, it's not that being right is so much the problem with Mudcat as it is that when one member gets a wild hare up his ass about another member, he simply refuses to ever again have a civil discussion with that member. I've looked at plenty of threads where certain posters (some of whom are still here) follow another around on every thread and antagonize that person instead of letting the argument die on the other thread. They want to carry it to every other thread where they find this other member posting no matter how innocuous or harmless this other person's posts may be.

I won't mention names because it will only start the very arguing I'm decrying here due to the fact that somehow these people seem to have a lot of support from other Mudcat members despite having done nothing to deserve it or not having anything any other Mudcat poster hasn't done.

Yes, we're all afflicted with the need to be right all the time but, as others have stated, it's human nature. But once you have a difference of opinion with someone--LEAVE IT ON THAT THREAD! Don't drag the argument and shitty attitude with you everywhere you that other person posting (and you people know who the fuck you are so don't sit there nodding your damn heads).
