( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I agree, XP is essentially pointless.

However, when you disagree with someone, do you just tell them you differ and leave it at that?

When someone is presenting a point or attempting to persuade a group of people, I feel that if my opinion differs strongly from theirs, my opinion should be made aware of as a differing point of view. Not because I'm egotistical, but because in a open forum like this one, everyone that visits has an opinion and is entitled to let that be known to others.

Usually, if I approve of the node (++, not moderation) I leave a comment to the author or let them know somehow. If I disagree or dislike what someone has posted, I either talk to them or downvote.

The voting is just an aside; the exchange of information between monks is what's important and what should be the focus of time spent here.
