Not a good strategy. If somebody is being a complete asshole, it's
better just to say that they have good ideas, and you'll take it into
account and that you appreciate the feedback... 

Works far better...

Well, I guess that's a truly important fact, seeing as how you are the

Well, if you want to go look, go download some of my code and look at
it. I don't really have any feeling that I have to prove anything to

And in general, I don't go around thinking anybody has to prove anything
to me. I tend to give people benefit of the doubt. And in general, I try
not to go around behaving like some kind of complete and utter fucking
prima donna.
