Just because I stopped responding to you doesn't mean you "won" the debate. It means you are too insipid to respond to anymore.
Ever had this happen?
You are attempting to have an intelligent discussion and get called names or told you are being influenced by some random propogandist (Rush Linbaugh or James Carville, insert any name here).
Then when you stop responding the attacks get really ugly with a smug, "I am right because you're not responding anymore"!
