I don't quite understand why I've been quoted right alongside kaelis' boiling-rage-insults. I really don't see any other word available for expressing what I intended with the appropriate emphasis. "Being correct does not give you the right to be a rude, abrasive, and generally insufferable person." doesn't seem to have the same ring to it. To be honest, I was hearing the word "asshole" thrown around when I was in the 1st grade, and it's probably the least offensive general insult I can think of. I could take the silly route that seems to have been paved by the slackers and say "asshat", but it boils down to the same thing, and I don't see it as being any different from the original word in the end. Kaelis, on the other hand, seems to be striving to be as rude as possible while staying within whatever unwritten rules this forum may or may not have.
On that topic, your bringing this up seems to me to come off as an attempt to impose some kind of restriction on the content of this forum by way of a sort of passive threat to tell parents to keep their kids away from the place. In my opinion, shielding children from the vaguely taboo doesn't necessarily result in any particular betterment of the resulting adult, and this constant "won't somebody think of the children" thing has really gone overboard in many ways. Nevertheless, that's neither here nor there, and won't get me any points from some people. Typically though, this kind of discussion isn't likely to happen in the more technical resource oriented sections of the forum, so perhaps you could just keep the virgin ears away from the more free-range sections of this forum, (such as general, off-topic, and news) as they're the typical drama feeding grounds anyway. At least, until there are more detailed rules to lean on.
The point I was getting at before was that if you believe that you can be an asshole to anyone who is wrong, then you will naturally be an asshole to everyone who disagrees with you in any way, and whether the truth is really on your side becomes irrelevant, because, honestly, how often do you believe that you are wrong? I think this is important because it's essentially the reason I've given up on the irc network here that I used to feel comfortable in: that the people there seem to accept this kind of mentality, or at least don't challenge it actively enough.
