Wow Junior, thanks for the tip. Are we experiencing a bread shortage/gap?

Since I enjoy pumpernickel and rye the most I guess I better go grab some before it disappears from the shelves eye popping

In relation to the above image it always seems curious to me that open discussion between parties is always viewed as the way any differing positions can best be explored, yet somehow doing so on the 'net is supposed to magically suspend that dynamic.

If anyone can explain the difference between how holding a conversation in person compared to doing the same thing in this medium is different I'd certainly be curious to read that (*facepalm*)

From my own perspective, I can't recall ever changing my opinion from a discussion I have had on the 'net, but I have considered things and formed opinions not previously held from such discussions. I can say the same thing for face to face discussions though, so I have to ask the same question as Mrkim - why is there a difference?

There is no difference, some people just think there is. Probably because they can't read a persons face on the internet during a discussion. Words just aren't good enough for some people.

The internet is not real life, nothing here matters.
You can only change the real world if you make your opinions heard in the real world.
Making and or winnnig a point in the internet only changes the internet, not the real world.

By your same reasoning 'berto I suppose corporate and government conferences held online which can offer input from all across the globe would similarly be viewed as less than real. Or perhaps the twitter and facebook forums that lead to social upheaval to the point those in power have shut down the 'net as a means of heavy handedly controlling citizen participation are equally inconsequential, right?

I'll have to take exception to that whole line of reasoning since the dialogue being held is far more important than whatever medium is used to allow the dialogue to take place. Secondly as has been evidenced in recent times, without the internet as an alternative medium for discourse some events themselves would have been minimized if not totally shut down completely, thereby again reinforcing the overall importance as well as the validity of these avenues for communication winking

So I guess you think there are no real people reading the internet. Words are words even if they are on the internet. Books change people, newspapers change people so what is the difference between books and newspapers and the internet? Is it the paper material which changes people or is it the words? It does not matter where the words appear it is the words which move and change people not the medium. Anywhere 2 or more people gather can be a discussion place even this little ole website. All that matters is the ideas the words express.

...just chill the fuck out and eat a sandwich...
I think the point of the graphic above is not that people shouldn't discuss things, rather just don't be a dick about it...

Take your discussions anywhere you happen to be and don't worry about it being the internet.
