Subject: RE: BS: Do You Ever Lose Your Temper?
Nobody ever wins a debate. That's the real world. One party might succeed in silencing the other, but there's no particular reason to assume that's going to be the one with the better case. And the person who is silenced will virtually always continue to think they were in the right.

That's the difference from a discussion, where people can actual modify how they see an issue.
