Paul’s One Big Question for October 22, 2018

“Arguing with a fool proves there are two.” — Doris M. Smith

“Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.” — Mark Twain

 

Aside from any possible entertainment value that might be found in arguing with a fool, is there any good reason to indulge in the practice?  Are Smith and Twain right?
