Survival on NationStates
Three Simple Steps to NationStates Life
As you may have guessed, this factbook is about arguing on NationStates. I learned the hard way that NS arguing is not equivalent to real-life arguing, although both have the same objective: Who's Right?
As in real life, here on NationStates arguments can be separated into three distinct categories:
DebateOne side thinks he is certainly right while the other side thinks the exact same thing. These arguments are characterized by long posts and complex debate. Each side will do his best to make the other side's arguments look bad.These arguments usually take place on the NS forum and sometimes on the RMB.
-I know for sure that I am right. Right?
Wrong! Your opponent is saying the exact same thing to himself. Always have an open mind.
Remember: One or both of you is wrong. There is a chance that you are the one who is wrong.
-Ah ha. I caught my opponent. I purposely misinterpreted his words and made him look bad. Aren't I great?
No, you're not. This is exactly what can cause the argument to become Nasty Ad Hominem Slander. If your opponent does this to you, try to ignore it as best as possible. Sometimes it helps to make a response that is somewhat humorous. It varies widely on the circumstances however and sometimes, there is little you can do to prevent the argument from becoming Nasty Ad Hominem Slander.
-This is awful. My opponent has destroyed my argument. What should I do?
Well first of all: What shouldn't you do?
RULE #1: Do NOT turn the argument into Nasty Ad Hominem Slander. This is unfortunately how many people respond when proven wrong in a debate.
RULE #2: Do NOT leave the debate when you feel that you are defeated. This is very annoying for your opponent and it also wasted all the time you spent in the argument trying to find the truth.
-But, what should I do?
If you are sure that you are right (like everybody and his brother is), then do a quick search of the internet. Can you find something on the subject? Look on the other side of the issue too.
-I did that but it still looks like my opponent is right.
Ok, then. Admit that you were wrong and change your position on the subject. The latter is very important. Do not come back two weeks later to restart the argument after everyone forgot that your opponent won.
-If I am wrong, how do I admit it without looking stupid?
It really depends on your opponent. Some opponents will try to take advantage of the fact that you were wrong. They may use it to ridicule you. Judge your opponent first. If he is a reasonable guy, then don't try to hide the fact that he convinced you of his position. Your opponent spent a good portion of his time in the argument.
-I've proved my opponent wrong many times but he doesn't seem to care.
Yep, that's normal, unfortunately. In a debate, you are mainly arguing to convince others, not your opponent. The argument probably goes in one ear of your opponent and out the other. Make sure you are not treating your opponent the same.
Nasty Ad Hominem SlanderIn these situations, one side no longer cares who is right and is simply interested in ridiculing and slandering the opponent as much as possible in an effort to gain popularity.These arguments take place on the RMB and sometimes on the NS forum. They never take place via telegram since no audience exists to applaud the slanders.
-Our argument has turned into Nasty Ad Hominem Slander. What do I do?
Try to avoid getting into the mud. Point out that your opponent is only attacking you personally, ad hominem, and not attacking your argument. It may be necessary, depending on the circumstances, of course, to leave the debate until your opponent cools down.
-This was a short section. Why didn't you spend more time on it?
Because there is not much one can do when a Nasty Ad Hominem Slander breaks out and whatever one can do is totally dependent on the particular circumstances. Objectively speaking, this shouldn't be classified as an argument although many people use it as such.
-What do I do?
In these types of arguments you should always stay on topic and address your opponent's arguments. Try to keep your responses short and to the point. If you and your opponent are unable to agree on the issue in a couple of posts it will probably (not necessarily, but probably) become a debate.
-What shouldn't I do?
RULE #1: Don't try to make fun of your opponent! At this time, your opponent is open to your argument and making fun of him will only close him down and most certainly cause the argument to turn into a debate.
RULE #2: If your opponent seems to be ignoring your arguments, the discussion has already become a debate so these rules no longer apply. Don't try so hard to keep yourself in a friendly argument that you allow your opponent to take advantage of you. In other words, don't shy away from answering your opponent's argument as clearly and succinctly as possible.
-What if my opponent proves me wrong?
That's wonderful! You should accept your opponents points and thank him for clearing up the issue for you.
-Who is my opponent?
This is a very important question. Always ask yourself this before starting an argument. Is he a friend of yours? If so, then the argument should be conducted in a less restricted and more loose manner. Is he someone who you disagree with often? If so, don't immediately turn the discussion into a debate. You still have a chance of concluding the discussion in a friendly format.
Remember: These are all suggestions. It really matters on the person and every person will be slightly different so the best I can do here is give you guidelines; you'll have to use your own judgement.
Final Note: Once a friendly argument turns into a debate, it is extremely hard to get it back down to friendly status. Also, you've more than likely, lost your chance to convince the opponent of your position.
