Weak Sauce Quasi-concessions You Hear in Debates/discussions
- •"I don't disagree with you."This double negative will not confuse the fact that you're agreeing with me. What it says even more clearly is that you find it so repulsive to have to agree that you'll resort to language that helps not to hurt your own sensibilities.
- •"Fair."This is a way of saying that you are the bastion of fairness and that in contrast to all other points, you're willing to allow this one concession to the rest of my incorrect point of view.
- •"I'll give you that."This is my favorite. Atomic levels of condescension.
