The other relevant quotation, I believe, is:

Do not argue with an idiot they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
—Mark Twain

That’s great! There’s also the Biblical version:

6 Do not answer a fool according to his folly,
or you yourself will be just like him.
5 Answer a fool according to his folly,
or he will be wise in his own eyes.
—Proverbs 26:4-5

Yeah, maybe a little contradictory, but arguing with idiots is a no-win situation.
