    Well, Murphy's Law says, "Never argue with an idiot; people might not know the difference."

    Remember Victor Victoria? In one scene the Robert Preston character was arguing with the waiter.

    "You are a horse's ass!" Preston said.

    "Oui, Monsier. And it is a moron that argues with a horse's ass."

    At which point Preston and Julie Andrews explode with laughter.

    Hazel, stop being an attention whore. How about blogging some of these issues so we all know what the hell you are talking about Captain Mysterious.

    These issues are often very easy to find, just look at a few threads.

    Kids, would you please play nice? You're gonna make Daddy drink. And when Daddy drinks, you KNOW what happens next. That's right. The beatings start.

    This is the most thought provoking thing I've ever seen on this website.

    There is one exception that I can think of. One should argue with Creationists and Intelligent Design proponents, Anti-Vaxers, HIV/AIDs deniers, and Global Warming deniers. You won't convince them of anything because they are idiots, but those within earshot who are undecided will be affected by your argument. This is important because it is the great undecided whose vote mostly influences public policy.

    This is the reason I spend time on science denial forums arguing with idiots.

    Yes, the right wing political animals here are a bunch of idiots.. They scratch their own backs, and give loving approval to it.

    In order to argue with an idiot, you should know the subject matter. And the loser is the one who begins the name calling.

    Logic is a thing they never know. When the argument is all feelings and very little logic, it doesn't take much to prove to yourself they are wrong, but the arguing person will never know this.
