    Hey guys, I've been on the web for a while now, and I've got a lil' experience.

    Here's a lil' trick I've learnt. If you want to win an argument on the internet, all you've to do is write "/thread". It's a really smart reference to coding. When you write that after your comment, that means your word is final and you've won the argument. It means you know what you're talking about and that after you've made this sharp and down-to-earth point, there's nothing else to say. It doesn't matter if other people have other ideas or different perspectives. By putting "/thread" after your comment, that means that you're objectively right and therefore there needs to be no further discussion.

    Pretty neat, huh?

    How to instantly win an Internet argument: be right and so sure of your rightness that no non-right noobs can take that rightness away from you no matter how many statistics they amateurishly Google. The statistics of your mind will always win.

    This is more like a GOTO 10 instruction than an actual tip.
