- When people start making comments using words like implied or by default those are weasel words that allow the user to make a statement without having any factual evidence to support the statement.
- When you structure perceived opposites into a discussion like Irrational/Rational or Hate/Love or Atheist/Christians you are going to get conflict because as someone pointed out a couple of pages ago Values Dissonance.
- Matters of faith or non-faith are intensely personal and people find it difficult to remain objective when discussing them.
- Most people find it difficult to behave politely when talking about these things in a face to face environment where someone can actually punch you. It is harder here to maintain politeness.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
