Well if thats your example, by spliting things up we're perpetuation a digression. No?

They usually end up banned.
I'm not sure if this was a reply to me or not because I never said anything about anything being inherent. But I'm pretty unclear on what you're talking about now. Who are "they"?

Oh man...say whats your real name again?

Anyway, they, being posters that break up parapgrahs into points so they can refute them without having to take into account the breadth of the point or even realize what their arguing against.

Ah. I guess I could see that. I'd say the same thing also happens when people don't split the reply up though. I've run into plenty of situations of people doing the solid block response to one of my posts where they completely ignore points that were raised. Also, at times with the solid block method it can become unclear exactly which comments are being directed at which point.

Ah well, that's how casual conversations go, you know? Asides and tangents are par for the course.
