Thread Name: BS: Fighting fair in arguments
Subject: RE: BS: Fighting fair in arguments
Which goes back to what I said in my first post about arguments/discussions/controversies:

"On the one hand they can be fights, trying to beat the opponent regardless, anything goes. Or they can be collaborative exercises - either collaborative in the way that in a formal contest or game your opponent is actually in a deeper sense your partner; or in the way that different people with different ideas can be involved in a joint project.
