Attributed variously, including to George Carlin. May have been mentioned before on this thread, possibly even by me. Applicability to some of the discussions on this forum is a matter for debate.
Two similar quotes:
Never argue with a fool...
...Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.
...He may be doing the same thing.
The first gets attributed to Mark Twain, I don't know about the second but it might have roots in the Proverbs of Solomon. It seems idiots have been arguing for millennia, so why did anyone bother making the Internet?
