    What is up with saying that people should agree to disagree? It bugs me like crazy! Its totally pointless!

    It makes sense to agree that a conclusion cant be reached at the moment and that you dont want to argue but why agree to disagree? If you agree do you say lets disagree to disagree? Why not just say "I think your wrong and I'm not gona back down from my opinion"?

    I think it's fine to say. But since you dont agree, let's agree to disagree.

    *I'm alright w/it, it makes perfect sense to me. I do not care to fight about it though, so let's move on to another, more pleasant subject...*

    Nope. *Agree to disagree* rolls way better. :)

    No, it's not. It means I acknowledge your viewpoint, but I also acknowledge that we're not going to agree.

    There is this concept called "courtesy". There's a connection to it.

    We will never agree on this. I think we should have a very long debate about it. Let's start with a definition of the word agree.

    I think we'll have to discuss the race of the word "agree" first and foremost. ;)

    I never understood what it meant until a few weeks ago. Now, I wish we had a phrase like that in Turkish :p

    I so wish to agree to disagree :D

    I'm not allowed to argue anymore.

    Not quite. Relativism says everyone is right. Agree to disagree says "I think you're wrong, but we can ignore the issue and be friends anyway." This is much better...and real "tolerance."

    Meh. Agree to disagree sounds a lot like "whatever man, every one can have an opinion" to me. :D
