How do you know if you've won a debate?

SpiritualEyes 2009/05/01 15:41:20
If the other person creates a sock puppet profile and stalks you.
If you get blocked.
If both parties learn something from each other and agree to be friends.
If the person who you are debating with agrees that they were completely wrong in their old belief, and agrees to bow down and believe as you believe.

    They back off.
    They start using insults only, without furthering the conversation.
    They refuse to answer a question and refuse to further the conversation.
    They tell me I'm too stupid to understand their argument, and leave.
    They tell me I wouldn't understand because my lack of bias in their god's favor.
    They say that we should agree to disagree.
    They tell me to read a book, or go read several links that argues for them.
    They block.

    If you get blocked, they openly tell you to stop or that they're sick of it, they delete your comments, or they just shut up all together.

    When they block you because they cant come up with answer only an insult then they run and hide behind their block button.or when they block you and piggy back off another persons reply just so they can insult you I call that a HIT and RUN....

    On SH, the usual way to know if you've won is when the other person attacks you, then blocks any rebuttal, though making a sock puppet and stalking you is also a sign you've won.

    In front of 250M to 360M people, you raise your right hand and, after being sworn by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, you repeat these words: " I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

    I think that means you won.

    office president united ability preserve protect defend constitution united won

    I usually engage in long debates that end with the other person not bothering to reply to my comments.

    What does that mean?

    I have had conservatives do that to me.
    In fact, I only block after being blocked.
    This is not a liberal or conservative issue. It is an asshole issue.
