    Why do you argue on the internet?

    Yes. Why? EDIT: I personally enjoy arguing from time to time, and sometimes I get caught up in something dumb, but I'm starting to learn to let it go when people say things I think are dumb. Typically an argument like the ones you see in cong is something I go out of my way to avoid.

    Where lies the line between mental illness and personality?
