I was thinking it might help if we had a discussion of our tactics for keeping cool in debates when taking the side of vaccinations being the best option. We all know there is a fairly combative atmosphere on the debate threads, but I think we do better to stick to the facts calmly as much as possible. And I'm sure that will help the moderators.
Now I'll admit I struggle with keeping cool sometimes when I'm repeatedly being accused of ignoring facts, or with the (what I interpret as) repeated attempts to provoke. At MDC those posting in the vax boards in a "pro-vax" manner do seem to be in the minority, so it can feel a lonely place sometimes when you see all those "likes" on the nasty (but inside the UA) posts - although makes me all the more thankful for those who do jump in to try to defend me!
Anyway, back to my first point - one tactic I have is to not immediately respond, but to read, go away and consider and return to post. I think I'm lucky in a sense that I'm online at really different times to most people here, so I can usually have the boards to myself for a little while (e.g. in the morning in the UK).
Any other suggestions?
