    Is it an art or a skill? And is it really fine?

    Is an argument a little bit effective or a whole lot effective?

    And furthermore I disagree because you could have said something else entirely.

    Ineffective argumentation? Too much speedwork, not enough weights.

    It went to bed shortly after it started. But I'm up and awake now... sort of.

    Perhaps we should stick to something we know [instead]. 😛

    Rule of thumb #1


    Try to avoid contradicting yourself.

    If you find yourself arguing both for and against your own point, then it is probably best to segway into something completely unrelated. And use a lot of $50 words, erudite sounding words... this can often work to throw the hounds off the scent.

    Because you spelled segue wrong, your whole argument is invalid.
