How so? If a tree falls and no one is around to hear it fall, does it still make a sound? If there is no one to hear your argument, are you still arguing?

Arguments don’t just go away because you don’t want to hear them. Pretending they’re not there because you can’t hear them means that you just don’t want to hear them, not that you’re “above” the argument. If you’re blocking someone else for your mental health or safety or whatever then sure that makes sense, but arguments continue to exist even when you thumb your nose at them.

Except I have the right to choose if I want to keep participating in an argument. I’m allowed to walk away, blocking is just the internets version of walking away from an argument. You can not force someone to participate in an argument with you. Telling someone they aren’t allowed to block you because you are in argument is ridiculous. You have no such control over anyone.

Edit: just saying this to further prove my point. You don’t need a reason to block anybody.

I never said that. Like I said, you can leave an argument for mental health or safety reasons, or really any reason you want. The issue that I’m saying is that that doesn’t mean the argument is over.

Doesn’t mean that you loose either. I didn’t say that you said those things, I only said them to further my point. - apologies if there was confusion.

It’s okay, I agree about losing now though. Looking back I probably said that as an ego thing because just because it’s over doesn’t mean you lost it, just that it’s not worth it to continue, which is totally fair
