I remember back where “winning” online arguments happened when one party insulted the other using poorly constructed Latin from a web-based translation engine or by falsely claiming “I’m in Mensa, how about you?”

Things have progressed but not evolved, only transitioned. Now to win an online argument one need only state “You use rhetoric and don’t think for yourself” or just full-tilt embrace ad hominem like so many translucent maggots feasting upon the bloated, diseased, unrecognizable carcass that was once American civility.
