One more thing. If—and almost with 99 percent certitude, WHEN—the other person becomes irrational, do not continue to use facts and logic. Facts and logic are useless against irrationality.
At that point resort to non-personal mockery. I.e.: laugh at the irrationality itself, not the person. This is the tactic they truly cannot tolerate. Some of them would be happy to waste your time forever—but they are NOT happy at seeing their efforts publicly mocked. It drives them crazy.
Also, there are a few bona fide antisocial sociopaths out there. Once you’ve identified a person as such, it’s best just to avoid them. Their whole purpose is to be 1, noticed, and 2, nasty. It’s not even productive to mock such a person; being resolutely ignored bothers them far more. Fortunately, most people aren’t malignant sociopaths.
