Ermabwed posted this on the EL forums years ago.

All forums should have a link to it, IMO.

Interesting read. a lot of DH2 going on in these forums. That passage in DH4 is also very true

Quote

More often than not, two people arguing passionately about something are actually arguing about two different things. Sometimes they even agree with one another, but are so caught up in their squabble they don't realize it.

Ya you'll find mixed parts of DH1-6 all over my posts. I only refrain from DH0 out of courtecy to sensitive people. As you said in another thread it's not a perfect world, and democracy invariably leads to politics, and we all know the best bullshitters win there. While a steadfast barrage of DH0-1 will not get you very far, I believe neither will DH5-6.

Take themuntdregger for example, due to his RL background (lawyer) he tends to write really long posts consisting mainly of DH5-6 (not necessarily good arguements, but he makes pretty sure you know exactly what he disagrees with and why), but people tend to TL;DR his posts, and questions why he spends so much time writing them. (http://www.politicsf...rs/flame_20.php).

Therefore I believe that the situation dictates the approach. That's just me though, I could be wrong.
