  1. The other relevant quotation, I believe, is:

    “Do not argue with an idiot they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.”
    —Mark Twain

    1. That’s great! There’s also the Biblical version:

      6 Do not answer a fool according to his folly,
      or you yourself will be just like him.
      5 Answer a fool according to his folly,
      or he will be wise in his own eyes.
      —Proverbs 26:4-5

      Yeah, maybe a little contradictory, but arguing with idiots is a no-win situation.
