@VasiliyZaitzev this sounds like my Civil Procedure class where the whole point was to dodge the issue and argue about things like jurisdiction and standing. An excellent example of this particular brand of bourgeois-gayness is how in the run up to Roe V Wade the supreme court would stall the plaintif untill she gave birth and the dismiss her case on the grounds that since she's not pregnant she has no standing in an abortion case.
@GaiusTiberius Only in a case where participants are attempting, in good faith, to arrive at the truth and illuminate it. For guys who are just flexing their "internet muscles", typically because life isn't meeting their expectations in other areas, then you basically have three choices:
Engage them from a higher level, which is like having a discourse about the necessity for rationality and restraint with a rabid badger; not only is your opponent unqualified from the start, he's only out to injure you.
Snap back at them from their level, which is like competing in the Special Olympics; even if you win you're still retarded.
Or disregard. I've got nothing to prove, so I just can't be bothered. Someone wants to congratulate himself because he imagines he's dunked on me? Fine, let him. I've got my life and he's got his.
