Subject: RE: BS: Fighting fair in arguments
In addition to the excellent observations above, I''l add that there are a lot of people who use arguements as a as an opportunity to vent their own personal demons. We have a family friend who, at gatherings, has an observable pattern of slipping into a conversation circle and making an abrasive, baiting remark and immediatly escalating social pleasantries into hostilities--It can be on any subject.
