      "Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience."

      How many times I have had to remind me of this most important quote of all? I think of this one, time and time again, stopping myself from answering emails from an idiot I know (who I am related to).

      Everyone needs to use discretion answering idiots. If you answer them, it becomes a pissing contest, arguing about stupidity.
