As most regular patrons of the pulse notice, I often take extended absences from posting on these forums. Beyond the obvious reasoning for this, I too, have grown weary of throwing my opinion into the abysmal sea of other opinions and observations, often made by people who are 100% convinced that they are right and are still, in this age and place of enlightenment, arrogant and stubborn.
This rings with me. I too have been guilty of arrogance, but have tried to curb that. In fact, over the past year I am sure that the regular contributors here have generally become less arrogant and more open to others' opinions. However, there is still a great morass of differing opinions and misunderstandings, which I find more troublesome than arrogance. An arrogant person can be shamed if they understand they have been proven wrong. But an arrogant person who repeatedly misunderstands an argument, can not.
