Trouble is, and I'm guilty of this too, is that people are so intent on being right that they will spend a lot of effort searching for and providing "backup" for their opinion, while spending very little time actually studying the backup provided by others with a differing opinion.
Most of the time it just seemed like a lot of people saying... "me, me, me"...
"no! me, me, me!" ... "NO! ME, ME, ME" ... "NO!!!! MEEEE, MEEEE, MEEEE!!!!!"
SNAP! LOSE IT! HEADFAKE!
Ding, ding, ding. From the limited time I spent in the politic's section, that is pretty much the impression that I got. It made my head hurt too much. =/
