I'm afraid that you have overestimated how far removed we are from monkeys.  When we run out of sticks and rocks to throw, it is time to throw poo.

It's uncivilized in the world of proper writing and debate to cuss but yes it's fun and trash talking is an art unto itself aka the ad hominem attack.

From Wikipedia:

"Abusive ad hominem (also called personal abuse or personal attacks) usually involves insulting or belittling one's opponent in order to invalidate their argument"

 

As rational and self controlled people we can look down upon nasty behaviour but still we have emotions and anger can find it's way into a arguement.

I agree with you Mira, we are adults and many result to just name calling, when i do it its for a reason, not just because i ran out of materal to use for an argument of anything
