We have all had heated discussions, especially on religion pointing out our point of view (or experience).
It also depends on the receiver, which is best to air on the side of caution as not to hurt anyone's feeling or ego. With that said we learn a lot from those who are like minded but we learn so much more when we are challenged by someone who is not as like minded in our own view.
I have had in depth discussions from two people in particular on this forum. One ended in respect on my part but they chose not to respond to me although I feel mature enough to handle what they have said to me. The other person I also gained a great respect for them and I feel it is mutual as we continue to comment and are cordial with each other. So I learned we all feel intensley about what we know, don't know and think we know.
All in all this is the greatest learning forum in my opinion and that I know. And no one better say different. (Just kidding for those who took me seriously). Like I said a lot has to do with the emotional make up of the person you are having a discussion with. I learned you air on the side of caution.
