Usually only the strongest will WIN ALL arguments, through:
1. authority and Power - USA, North Korea, etc
2. laws and orders - Singapore (i can only think of 1 place on earth)
3. talents - top of the fields, Warren Buffett, etc
4. actions - Mother Theresa, Gandhi, Mandela, etc
5. beliefs - religions
However, it is also nature's will that no one will WIN ALL arguments forever because no can win an argument by himself, only through the acceptance of those listening to the arguments.
always the Light, .... always.
On the other hand, 打是情，骂是爱。I have seen many love blossom from arch rivals. Somehow the emotions stirred during arguments is too hot and passionate that it develops into affection. Even competing companies merge or form joint ventures. So what divides us today might bring us together in future. Never say never. Let a quarrel takes its course. Never kill off something too early. Mitigate only when it is coming to a fight.

i'm just pointing out that the evidences you have produced, inference does not count. you are not allowed to , for example, in a court of law, infer the possible reasons if a defendant decides to not produce his own testimony, and the lack of it must not be taken into account. i hope you are clear with this point.
facts and only facts shld be presented. thats all i am saying. and so far, the only piece of solid evidence was teh statistics, hope you understand what i'm getting at. opinions and stands change with evidence produced.if you provide more compellign evidence, i will be swayed to your side of the argument. take a step back, look if you have made any clear bias and then change your pov. most of us are stubborn, and this is one good time to review if we had been stubborn in our stand.
and as for the noise part, my oversight. i probably crossed over with another person's comments by accident or something. for that i apologize
hope this clarifies.

just give up....it's impossible to win arguments in an online forum. both sides are simply too proud to accept defeat! and there is no judge to say who has won the argument.
the only arguments than can be "won" are in a courtroom.
