    I'll admit that being willing to lose isn't necessarily a great trait for everyone. It's not a decision I make lightly, nobody likes getting their ass kicked. I just weigh the costs versus the benefit a little differently than many people.

    Edit: I understand that you weren't really in a position that losing would be beneficial in any way. But in some cases, it can be. War just isn't one of those cases.

    I don't argue to be right, I argue to be proven wrong. Because I'm aware that the collective intelligence of the community likely has more to offer to me by enlightening me, than I do to an individual by "winning" an argument with them.
