Who is spoiling for a fight?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26821points) January 4th, 2015

Lately it appears there cannot be a thread, serious ones not the fluffy games, where someone seems to be taking digs, cut, or slights at another Flutheronian. Are there Flutheronians that are just spoiling for a fight, and the context or subject of the question has little importance than a catalyst for them to squabble with another Flutheronian that has a different to very different from theirs?

Can it be a food fight?

Seriously, I must have missed this thing you have perceived. People seem to be getting along rather nicely lately.

If anything, it seems lately to be less hostility floating around this site.

Glad I missed those threads! I’ve been in some pretty interesting discussions lately.

I have noticed it and I am probably partially to blame for it. The holidays just put me in a massively pissy mood. Now that I can go 10 months without any forced family interaction I should be in a better mood.

I think its improved lately, but there are bound to be some floating pissants poised to strike with their empty gestures, that’s just the way of things.

Seems pretty tame to me lately.

Compared to the days of everyone arguing over whether there is a God or not, this is nothing.

At least no one calls anyone by nasty names yet.

Unless you are quick, you won’t see it, those types of things usually get zapped fairly fast.

@ucme It seems you are @Hypocrisy_Central
Really? Should I care to do that, I know what buttons to push, it isn’t that hard. Maybe I am the only one that sees it and others are comfortable with the snide remarks I see, but I know what I see for me; it may be different to you. After all, most of it is perception anyhow.

I have no desire to enter Tina Turner’s “nutbush”...once in, there’s no way out!

You’re not witnessing anything special, nowt exclusive to your mindset. That shit has been evident here for fucking years. So boring & tedious that it passes by largely unnoticed now, at least to me, become immune to the miserable whining fuckers.
So yeah, move on & forget about it, for it is a quest which will mark you out as even more idiotic :D

I think you are consistently looking for unpleasantness where none exists, @Hypocrisy_Central.

“Maybe I am the only one that sees it…” pretty much nails it. You seem to be one of the few left actively looking for a slight.

You’re the only one I can think of that can’t even consistently play nice on the “fluffy games” questions. I mean, really, how much more petty can you get?

After all, your question is about pettyness and the purveyors thereof.

Maaaan, I had this dream last night where I got kicked out of Fluther, and the person who did it also said I wasn’t allowed any pillows. If that happened for real, I’d be looking for a scrap for sure.

Well, I was about to let that soliloquy pass as the wind, but if one is going to attempt to call me petty I have to point out the larger glass windows in the larger houses. There may be petty people but I am not one of them, you might ask those who can’t answers simple questions, unless game questions are the top of their food chain. I play the game with the same flavor questions get asked, at least I am following the rules of the question as oppose to trying to redefine the question or make up my own rules.
