"Shouting someone into silence, does not mean you have shouted them into agreement!"

I see a lot of people doing this, everywhere on the Internet: If "person A" say something, but no-one agrees with that. Then "person A" quickly start bitching, when someone do not agree with them 100 precent. So "person A" call people "idiots" or "stupid" and so on and so forth. Instead of "person A" attempting to actually EXPLAIN why they believe whatever they are believing. After a while people just stop to discuss anything with "person A" and "person A" assume this is because "person A" was so amazing and fantastic in every debate.
