Arguments to avoid

A contributor to wikipedia was silly enough to get into an argument over the definition of 'weblog'... with the person who coined the term (Jorn Barger/robotwisdom) -- not that the person who created the term should own it, but if you do find yourself in such a debate, you're probably better off retreating rather than losing the respect of your peers. This is certainly a candidate for Lamest edit wars ever.

I only backed off because it wasn't worth an endless fight.

However, to this day, I know my position on that matter is factually correct. Sometimes, one cannot win a battle against someone who thinks they own a term (despite the fact that the term 'weblog' evolved since its creation). Especially one who never proved they were who they said they were.
