Ok, If you have ever argued on an internet forum, why did you do it?

I do sometimes not because it's fun, but because it sparks interesting conversation and debate.

or do you do it just to get your rocks off?

Because if I see someone say something wrong on the internet, I just can't handle it.

Sometimes I get in the mood. I'm not a big enough asshole to keep up with the other big assholes though.

I usually argue with my mates a lot on MSN. And I used to get into a lot of arguments on CoD about whether or not a shot could be construed as a Quickscope or not

I like to see other peoples' opinions on things. I try not to be disrespectful or confrontational about it.

I fail to see why internet arguments are different from real life arguments. Internet is where it's at, bitches.

On the internet you're not face to face. People have no shame in what they say, its much easier to completely shit on someone you've never met and will most likely never see than to do it to their face.

One of these:

1. I wanted to look and feel smart.

2. I legitimately wanted to argue a certain opinion to encounter counterarguments and strengthen (or possibly weaken) my view.

3. I was legitimately offended by someone's post and opinion.

Mostly number 1. There's been a few number 2 and 3s here and there.

Edit: And it's number 1 for about 95% of users here in The Pit. No matter what they say in this thread.

Edit: ^ Not for me. I promise.

I will admit, I also used to do it to feel smart, until I realised what a ****ing idiot I am. Now I legitimately like to see other's opinions.

Nah, you're cool bro.

I mean, sometimes I see users have the same argument over and over and over again, where they use the same posts verbatim in an argument where they pretty much know they've won right from the beginning. and I'm like "...Shit." I doubt they're doing it for some selfless quest to liberalize others.

I don't argue (most of the time); I debate. They're much different.

I was going to say something similar but I thought somebody would call me a stupid pseudo intellectual.

I only do it when I feel like pissing someone off or if someone else starts it.

Only when someone is saying something which I strongly disagree against. I think it's pretty pathetic though haha
