The rules are quite simple: you must either agree with the person who posts before you, or disagree.

If you agree, you get a point.

If you are the first to disagree in a line of posters who agree with each other, you tally a point for each post with whom you disagree back to but not including the last person to disagree. (This may include multiple, non-consecutive posts from the same person--one point for each post; but you're not allowed to agree or disagree with yourself in consecutive posts.)

Of course, disagreeing may well incur the wrath of everyone else from whom you've just taken the potential of garnering a whole slew of points, but such is the hazard of being the voice of dissent.

So, agree, or disagree?

I butt-in to drop an argument into the middle, then excuse myself without further discussion.

I'm on the fence about it.

I concede on principle, but consider certain types of arguing to be moving away from a productive area of discussion.

I'll just flat-out agree, because I want my measly point.

yes, it's called 'The Game Of Agreement'.

Here, let me explain:

The rules are quite simple: you must either agree with the person who posts before you, or disagree.

If you agree, you get a point.

If you are the first to disagree in a line of posters who agree with each other, you tally a point for each post with whom you disagree back to but not including the last person to disagree. (This may include multiple, non-consecutive posts from the same person--one point for each post; but you're not allowed to agree or disagree with yourself in consecutive posts.)

Of course, disagreeing may well incur the wrath of everyone else from whom you've just taken the potential of garnering a whole slew of points, but such is the hazard of being the voice of dissent.

So, agree, or disagree?

I disagree.

If we ignore him we all might go to more high quality threads
