ok since there was a thread about people wanting a different discussion here is one
When you have an opinion and someone comes disagreeing with you do you bother to reply to their message or you simple ignore it and let then happy with their opinion ? i rarely reply to their messages because if i know something a lot of people never like to admit they are wrong and will keep saying they are right no matter how many fact's you bring to the discussion because a lot of times what i see is someone says he is right the other one says he is wrong they continue to argue later they start calling themselves names and in the end no one wins just a waste of time.
So yea do you bother to convince the people ? if yes how many times to do you bother to replay to the other person before giving up as there no point in continuing ?
I'll try to make things clearer but in the end it's up to other people on how they take the discussion.

Some are just stubburn and ignorant, no matter what you say. You maybe right but the conversation only goes one way. Which really isn't a true conversation.
Agree some people won't admit they are wrong no matter how many times you bring fact's i guess being ignorant is one of the reason's
It depends on the topic and then on the individual involved for me. I like to have my opinions challenged, respectfully, and like to challenge other people on their opinions. Allowing an open challenge and discussion on the opinions you hold is the only real way to learn and grow in my opinion.
If its a topic I'm passionate about I'll provide an argument, usually with links/facts, to back up the opinion I hold on a topic. I'll debate differing opinions with anyone who can do so with an open mind. The moment what I said gets ignored or the responder tries to loop back around what I said to what they originally said I peg them as a person who does not want a debate, but instead wants to just repeat their own opinion without backing it up, and I'll walk away.
