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

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

    • That’s great! There’s also th' Biblical version:

      6 Do not answer a fool accordin' t' his folly,
      or ye yourself will be just like that scurvey dog, avast.

      5 Answer a fool accordin' t' his folly,
      or he will be wise in his own eyes.
      —Proverbs 26:4-5

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