Don't blame me if you don't feel superior or holy during a debate. That's on you, not me.
I was expressing my opinion, I didn't feel superior and I was lording over anyone.
Your problem lies in the fact that my opinion differs from yours, so to validate your opinion over mine you revert to character assassination.
Bull...I dont want to feel superior during a debate thanks XD
Your opinion differs in the same way that Richard's does to mine, all I said was that HE expressed it in a way which didn't get my back up because HE didn't come over all "holier than thou" like you did.
That means that I actually THOUGHT about what he said.
Maybe you could learn a lesson or two from him. Your attitude is the type of attitude responsible for making others hate vegans and close their minds to the vegan message. Richards' attitude is one which will encourage understanding and make people open and receptive to what he says.
I'm not reverting to "character assasination" as this is only one aspect of your personality, but you really don't have much tact or negotiating skills when it comes down to it m8. Richard basically said the same as you, but in way which makes me know i would like him if I ever met him. However, your tone and the way in which you expressed yourself make me suspect that I wouldn't exactly "warm" to you. I hope that you don't go out on protests talking to people with that attitude because I'm sick of trying to undoe the catastrophic effects that "holier than thou" vegans have on spreading the vegan message.
