When people have good evidence and reason for a particular argument, they do not attack your person.
Do you know what they do?
They give their logic and proof!
When someone resorts to name-calling – you have won.
Honestly, I prefer to not even argue. Repeat things you agree on and add: “I think it’s also true that…”
This will get you further than any contentious debate ever will.
You never win an argument until they attack your person.
