Remember to

NOT FUCKING ENGAGE IN PUBLIC DEBATE ON THE INTERNET

because the people challenging you don't actually want to learn, they just want to feel superior and prove their point.

@nawi @one yeah, but a debate rarely stays fair on the internet
@absturztaube @one The art of debating, tell your point without insulting.

@nawi @absturztaube It's not about insulting. It's about just wanting to destroy people.

I love debating because I love challenging myself and exploring new possibilities, but it seems like people only want to debate to feel superior to others, not to learn and change their world views.

@one @nawi if you want a healthy debate on the internet, you have to use a platform, which has rules for that. for example, the comment section of an online magazine here in switzerland does excatly that. and the discurs in those comments is really good

@absturztaube @nawi "Here in Switzerland". I didn't know you were Swiss. I thought you were German.

I fucking love Switzerland. I want to move so bad ;_;

@one We have a cook, lets have a Linux / BSD security camp ... @absturztaube
@one @nawi > adopt/marry me?
maybe, but then you first have to stop delete and redrafting :blobcatwink:
@one

> ... feel superior to others, not to learn and change their world views.

Could be. IIRC our last debate was not like that. You have your point of view, I have mine, we could accept each other and booth live with it so, its fine.

@absturztaube Sadly yes.

@nawi @absturztaube Yeah, you're a cool guy. I like talking to you.

Sadly you're the exception more than the rule.

@nawi @one eeyup. this art certainly got lost with the rise of FB and T
@one
Solid advice

Also these people most likely have you blocked depending on your choice of instance. We are all better off ignoring them tbh
