Comment by grinchler on Is arguing worth it? If so, when and when not? Also, how do I become less arrogant? · 2014-11-30T07:03:52.802Z · LW · GW

Half the time my goal when someone is wrong on the internet isn't to convince them, it's to convince anyone else that might be reading. But in part that's because most of my internet arguments take place somewhere like reddit instead of somewhere like Facebook. Convincing people who are just passively reading is easily, and it helps to modulate your message so that you don't end up getting combative (the biggest risk in arguing with people on the internet who keep being wrong).

This was mentioned last month, but The Metropolitan Man by alexanderwales is nearing its conclusion. It's a Superman story from the perspective of Lex Luthor, set in the 1930s as a period piece.
