    Turn around and walk away. Argument ends. Done.

      Yes Tim. This is the best way to avoid arguments. But what if you would really like to win that argument?

      I understand, yes one may say that is avoidance. To answer I would need to know what the argument is about. To me an 'argument' is more personalized & much less factual. Writing an argument is something entirely different. You present both sides.

    If I ever revealed to someone the tricks I use to win an argument, I would have to kill that person. : )

    I'm guilty of using 'big words' to knock the other debater off balance. It's a common practice to try to sound 'smarter' or to confuse. However I only do it when the other person resorts to personal attacks. Extremist debaters often resort to using your name to similar results. "Oh Dremer, you just don't understand. Try reading a book, Dremer." It's an attempt to treat the other person like a child and imply their ideas are juvenile. At that point, the gloves come off.

    I only debate on things which can be proven one way or the other. Google has resolved most of my arguments! smile
    I never waste time trying to get people to {change} their beliefs or opinions. A (feeling) defies all logic and reasoning.
