Why do some people feel compelled to be utterly obnoxious when debating or examining a premise?Here's a site where civility is de rigueur. See the diff?http://www.debate.org/debates/Grammar-makes-little-differenc...PREMISE: Grammar makes little difference to a phrase's meaning and clarityInstigator: I will be arguing pro, that correct grammar and spelling make little difference to a phrase's coherency. I will take the burden of proof in this debate.Con: As we're discussing the impact of grammar on meaning AND clarity, proving that correct grammar and incorrect grammar have a significant impact on just one is going to be enough for you to negate. However, my opponent must be able to defend both if he is wanting to win this debate. Also, since my opponent's definition of little is, well, vague, I will attempt to prove that incorrect grammar has a noticable impact upon a phrases meaning and clarity. If there is no noticable impact, then you affirm. However, if there's even the slightest notable impact, you negate instantly. Also, since my opponent did not specify the range of error in grammar allowed, we can presume that any and all gramatical errors in any quantity are allowed for me to use.Instigator: I thank my opponent for his response. I would like my opponent to know when I'm referring to grammar; I am talking about practical cases of error. Nearly all of the errors one would receive on an essay they turn into their teacher would not change the meaning of the paper; correct or incorrect.***Instead, we get crap like the prior post: disrespectful, belittling and demeaning and designed to make IGU feel like the smartest guy in the room. Pfffft!
