Whatever the outcome, we both have to agree on it. I am not going to argue until the other person caves out of fatigue. I don't have to 'win'. Winning makes the other person a loser. I don't have loser friends and I don't date losers.
I agree - can't be arsed reading the whole thread, but your view on arguments is ace.
Argue to get to the bottom of a matter, rather than to pointlessly win whether you're in the wrong, the right, or neither.
