Dealing with Difficult People

Alice in Texas has a very wise blog post on "the difference between a person seeking an honest debate, and a person trying to force their idea on you," and how to deal with the latter.

Basic tactic: "State your difference as clearly and concisely as possible. Don't state your position, just the difference." Then let go, and let it drop. Alice goes into further detail, worth checking out!

Here at Let the Finder Beware, we've been exceedingly fortunate in the commenters we've drawn, and we've virtually never had any problems in that department. (Knock on wood!) But anyone who's been around in the blogosphere for long has seen how the blogosphere seems to draw more than its share of the type of "difficult people" Alice discusses.
