Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I tend to regard everyone as a 'threat'. I'm rather sensitive to confrontation. I don't always show it, and I'll usually give as good as I get, but it took me a while to get over the 'burst into tears' reaction. As it is I still flinch internally.

    Oh I rather like confrontation, so long as no one's going to get injured.

    So did you hear that 9/11 was actually done by the reverse vampires in conjunction with the Rand corporation.

    I think I was just hit too often as a child to really enjoy confrontation. I enjoy challenges, and passionate debates, but not so much anything beyond that.

    That, and you liking confrontation doesn't particularly surprise me.

    Alright, Mike. Invitation sent. It's the one with the weird name you've never seen before.

    I enjoy confrontations because I look at them as opportunities to prove myself. With that in mind I project a strictly non-confrontational persona. Because I like surprising people.

    See, that would be someone getting injured which isn't really so much fun. Although if someone punches me over an argument I see that as proof that I've won.

    Oh, I haven't had a confrontation result in violence for.. eh... 6 years now? Maybe 7. But that instinct is still there.

    Debate is fine, though, as long as the person I'm debating can maintain an objective opinion and refrain from insults.

    ---

    Due - There's a difference between confrontation and debate. Though I tend to project a 'don't mess with me attitude' as well, although for different reasons. 1, the way I walk throws people off because of years of martial arts training (never mind the fact that I'd never hit someone unless they attacked me first). 2, I'm blessed with an almost unnatural amount of the gift of gab, so when I do talk, I sound knowledgeable to the average person, so that tends to intimidate people (annoyingly so). 3, I'm weird, so that again tends to keep people at arm's length.

    I heard that Cheney actually shoots and cannibalises the corpses of friends on hunting trips, then blames the result on "hunting accidents".

    I define it as such since the vast majority of people are offended and turned off by aggressive argument styles.

    I mean anything that involves a significant level of anger and an intent to fight, not discuss. If someone's just yelling, or talking angrily and overriding anything the other person has to say without trying to communicate, I'd call that a confrontation.

    Mike - Heh, it was a good wedding. The fact that Dyr's so damn cute helps. You should see Rad's wedding photos.

    Also, yes, I recommend at least finding a consistent lover, if not actually getting married. It doesn't make life easier, perse, but certainly more bearable. :^:

    Well then maybe they should stop being wrong and acting on wrongness in ways that hurt innocent people.

    Oh. Got it. I like confronting angry people who have the intention to fight while remaining calm and expressing whatever sentiment I have coherently. It's fun.

    So yeah I enjoy confrontation.
