This is one part I do not get, what do you mean by empty posts?? But for me, I usually leave my computer online and then check back every 30-45 minutes or so.Originally Posted by Setsunayaki
I totally agree with the ego thing, because I have seen this a lot at this certain other forum. But for me, you just simply have to deal with it and know that you are right in your own heart. That's what I do. But I do want to advise you that on certain issue, even verification by professors and friends and family do not mean a whole lot. For something like history debates, I usually factor in the factor of how history is look upon in everyone's point of view.I remember once when I typed and posted something in an online forumboard, Checked with a few professors, including my father about it. Knew about what I was saying and because I didn't proof outside of logic to a man with 5000 posts, when I had 7 at the time, He managed to turn the entire forumboard against me to boost his ego to another level, but lucky for me, through that I was able to see who were weak minded, strong minded, genuine and folly as people.
As for the how many times I posts in any certain thread, I will continue to posts as long until I get my point across. It's kind of hard to say "I'm just gonna post 3 times, and that's it." It's hard to judge who's immature, except for those who are really obvious about it. I always keep my mind open to everything, because everyone's entitled to their opinion no matter how far-fetch their ideas might seem.
