“All internet debates, without exception, are entirely futile.”

“There's no point debating anything online. You might as well hurl shoes in the air to knock clouds from the sky.”

“[Forums] quickly conspire to create a "perfect storm" of perpetual bickering.”

“Just another needless belch in the swirling online guffstorm.”

“Anyway, if we must debate things online, we might as well debate that. It's not like we'll ever resolve any of that other bullshit, is it?”
