Dale,

I don't know if you realize this or not, but making a case for why marijuana is not a polarizing topic for many people, and yet without being a tool about it(!), is a completely possible and reasonable thing to do. But apparently, whether it is arrogance, a childish nature, or whether your personal and relational skills are just that severely limited, even for a grown man, you couldn't disagree with me without laughing at me, calling my friends and family "asshats," and advising me to pull neocons out of my "underware" (which is not even a word, bud).

In fact, I knew that there were most likely some scenarios in which I was wrong and that I just wasn't thinking of them. And that is why I said (and I quote, once again), "But then again... I don't know your situation. So take my advice with a grain of salt." Seriously... it is pretty clear that what I wasn't thinking about was the fact that each of us hang in different circles, therefore I cannot make the universal claim that this topic is 'polarizing.' Did you notice how easy that was? But hey, whatever response you have to give that makes you feel like more of a man, right?

...

Also, here is the definition for you, according to google: "Divisive: Tending to cause disagreement or hostility between people."
When all that you had to do was point out the flaw (which I friggin' invited!), your natural reaction was to do so in a condescending way.
And, the next time that you think that your actions have been incorrectly labeled, rather than reworking the definition to fit my perceived intentions and using it as a defense, try looking it up to make sure the label doesn't actually fit. Because in this case, the label fits, and your obvious attempt at accusing me of conveniently redefining the word 'divisive' only proves that you have to resort to manipulation to discredit me. Also, here is another helpful hint: try not adding to MY argument in order to help yours (ie. I don't have a problem with marijuana, but somehow I magically developed one in your rebuttal).

Lastly, there is no 'chip' on my shoulder. I simply don't enjoy being insulted and belittled over such a small issue/opinion. I can't even believe, right now, how much time I've wasted arguing with you... But you know what? I'll give you the benefit of the doubt... rather than assume it was arrogance, childishness, or that you are that lacking in the 'relational skills' department, unless otherwise corrected I will assume that you've just forgotten the difference between Call of Duty teamspeak and the DP forums.
