Does it annoy you when people don't admit that you were right?

In other words, when people skip over a point in an argument that proves them wrong... or if they just ignore the entire argument.

I can kind of relate. In an argument with goodmale, I don't think he read even one of my arguments. I found that to be frustrating, since I'm putting in the time to read his poorly made arguments, and to think about the things he says to create my rebuttal, and to be callously disregarded and to have them not even read is low.

Ignoring what you wrote and denying that they lost are two entirely different concepts.

I began with, "I kind of understand" and the description doesn't disagree with my argument.

You must not have read what I typed under the title.

I read all your arguments. I reply to all. So you can't say I don't read your arguments. I am a good debater.

Side: Nah

Goodmale, goodmale, goodmale.... You give me head aches. we've been over this. After I refuted your points, you raised the same points, in a different way. I then refuted them, again in a different way, Then I believe once more before I grew tired, and added in a random sentence, than immediately following that random sentence, I asked if you caught that sentence. You went on to raise your saem points, again in yet another way. I called you out, stating you don't read my arguments so theirs no point, you raised your tired points again. I gave you three attempts to repeat the wacky sentence in that perfectly structured argument, before giving you a new wacky sentence, followed by an attempt at getting you to repeat it. You copy pasted my whole argument, then i said "Repeat the wacky sentence, or I will know you are not reading my arguments, and will not reply to you." You neglected to, again.

That is an exact play by play, and if you want the proof, it's all in the link. The debate where you neglected reading my arguments, and continually posted the same tired argument.

At least be humble in your loss. Don't be a poor sport.

The humble man is just the one without anything to be proud of.

Why be proud of a failure? Be humble in defeat so that people know you aren't an asshole (not you in particular, btw).

Side: Yep!

yes and no, Example If I am trying to debate on something that I have not much understanding on. I could be wrong but still I keep debating with someone that has more experience with the topic. So I am not annoyed if he stops arguing with me because I don't stop. Example is over. I feel the same way when people try to argue with me on something that I know more about and there just doing it because they don't want to say I been defeated. Thats why I don't post anything on something I don't know much about.

Side: Yep!

Definitely one of my pet peeves .

It annoys me when they give up at the first hurdle. No backbone. Rather fight a narcissist and have them spit in my face telling me they would have won if life was fair than fight a coward who is so humble and friendly that I wonder why they even consider themselves worthy of debating to begin with.

When people can't admit that I'm right, it means that they can't admit that they are wrong. If they can't do that then they are going to have a very frustrating life because the facts won't change any more than they will.

People who refuse to admit when they are wrong become their own worst enemies.

It doesn't really bother me. Especially with type of people out there who suppress the truth with unrighteousness.

What makes you think that your version of the truth is the right one?

This is true of everyone, not just true of the religious.

It's not really my version. It's someone else's truth who actually proclaimed it to everyone else. And it's absolute truth.

Side: Nah

Not really. In my experience, it's very rare for even a very skilled debater to actually sway his or her opponents position. I've conceded debates before, but it's a rare occurrence.

For me, there are two kinds of debates: subjects I'm passionate about, and intellectual exploration. For the latter, the debate itself is generally its own reward, and I don't need my opponent to tell me I was right. For the former, the intent is never to sway the person I'm debating (usually a fruitless endeavor), but rather to gain popular support; if I've put together a lucid argument that is largely airtight (big if there..) then I again don't need my opponent to tell me I was right; if I was, the audience already knows.

Actually, I lied, there's a third kind of debate: silly ones where I feed the trolls. When I look back on those, I'm always genuinely sorry, but I keep doing it, always getting caught up in the amusement of the moment, so it's a hollow apology.

But when you've obviously disproved their point, like with a link to a fact, does it bother you when they ignore it?

Side: Yep!

When they just drop it and don't concede or anything, that doesn't bother me.

When they respond by trying another angle, that doesn't bother me either.

But when they stick to their guns and refuse to acknowledge a good point, or worse try to state that a relevant point is not in fact relevant and doesn't count, I'll admit to getting a little irritated.

Of course, some would suggest that I've never disproved anyone regarding anything :P

Side: Yep!

People will always be idiotic :)
