    You technically couldn't end an argument if you were ignorant, so you wouldn't be able to win or lose it.

    If that makes sense.
    But the original question was that you couldn't win an argument if i was ignorant and was aware of that and the point still stands that you can't win

    Basically, you can be a **** and think you've got away with it because you acknowledge you're a ****.

    You may win a few moral victories but you gonna lose out in life bud.

    If you were ignorant, you wouldn't know better than to keep an argument going as you ignore everything and think that you're correct...
    ...simply thinking about this is making my mind implode.

    No you use it to your advantage and ignore what you'll lose the argument on

    You acknowledge what people say but just ignore it but you're aware of that

    ^^^ you're also someone i forgot to tag in that"tag who you've wanted to talk to but not been able to" thread by FireFreezer77 or something



    I agree
    If you acknowledge what people say, you're not longer ignorant of that knowledge, even if you ignore (i.e. do not act on) the knowledge. At that point you're basically pretending to be ignorant.

    Personally I don't see that as a valid way to win an argument or prevent your opponent from winning - the other person has won, but you just won't admit it.
