As discouraging as the discussions can be, I think it is important to continually think, and try to understand other people's thought process.
Now this isn't anything near a political discussion but step back & look at the # of threads over there that are more aggressive in nature than informative right from the get-go.

Step back once again & see the initial direction of the thread starter, hear the tone of the subsequent posts, & see that it's more about tearing down someone's opinion than it is in trying to convert someone's opinion.

How is that discussing politics? How is that trying to understand another person's POV?

I'd rather just invite everyone out to a bar, get hammered, & then kick the living crap out of anyone who didn't agree with me.

Now that would at least be fun...
