The semantics on this board is killing me

These semantic debates are not productive, and are akin to me to repeatedly bashing my head against the wall.

Because you're not bothering to learn anything from them.

if anyone did you would be on their ignore lists

^^I don't think it's that we don't like being challenged. It's that we find semantics debates boring. Maybe they'reuseful in FORMAL philosophical debates, but most people here debate casually. Not to mention I think we can get our substance across in such an informal setting without arguing over every little word.

There's nothing wrong with debating casually. But there is when everybody talks past each other and make elementary mistakes. That's not debate, that's just time-wasting.
