And requires a great deal of reflection to answer honestly.
And where to begin?
I am going to give it some thought and get back to you.
While I do that, I will leave you with a question.
Am I ...
Oh ehh, I dindn't think about that, hope I don't joke to much. Making an ass of myself so early on in the discussion
Some more thoughts though:

It is quite common for those engaged in a discussion to admonish those who don't accept their views as not having an open mind. However, could it be that when they tell us to have an open min ...
I guess sometimes this might be true when someone who think he or she is really open-minded, is just being politically correct. This can be very problematic, because being politcally correct in the West is probably very different from being the same in China or somewhere else, i reckon. It's like the person just repeats some widely agreed-upon values and "truths" from the country that he or she lives in, and thinks "surely this have to be universal?!?"
But I think someone might utter this out of pure frustration as well.
Another supicious behaviour, i think, is when the debators starts dragging in long and teadious articles as proof for their viewpoint and starts banging each other in the head with even longer and longer "proofs", the one more teadious than the other and noone seems to read them (no wonder). And then instead of debating the newly arrived information they start accusing each other of being too covardess to admit fault or brainwashed and unwilling to read,and with the insults the nasty bit begins: the usual who killed who, who killed the most, who's got the dumbest president(ehh...america, hushhh! ), when it happened, why and so on....Or the worst one of all...; they say your english is bad(Auch! that really hurt )
Could have been a discussion about flowers for all I know. Could this be symptomous behaviour?
