Online there’s always a sense of “there’s someone wrong on the internet.”
I get sucked into debates too easily. I try to avoid trolls, but at the same time, it’s fun to get into a friendly sparring match with someone on the opposite side of some issue.
As long as the sparring remains in good fun, it’s all good.
I got into one about protests in the past couple of days. While at the end we agreed to disagree about the topic, it was nice to not have something devolve into a shouting match online. I guess the biggest thing is that while we didn’t change each other’s minds on the topic, others who are reading the discussion might get something out of it themselves.
