The most pointless exercise in the world is to have an argument on the Internet. An even more pointless exercise is to have said argument and not get your point across, leaving your opponent arguing against a straw man.

@thorthenorseman clearly you don't argue with yourself endlessly. It's like the internet except every shitty thing you says stings you too.

@skypage For me, it's often some person disagreeing with a rant. I'm attempting to vent frustration and someone thinks I'm not entitled to feel frustrated at all.

@thorthenorseman I had successful arguments over the Internet, it's not pointless.
Albeit most of them were technical…

@xrevan86 If you learned something, it was probably a discussion or debate, not an argument.
