Say what you will, the guy played it straight (very little lateral motion), conceded defeat, and took it like a man. Don't see a whole lotta that in this venue. That fact should be noted and given high marks, IMHO.

Did I miss something? Did Botnst concede defeat? Is the reason for his absence that he is at a Re-Education Camp?

Whatever, he conceded the argument and played the good loser. I see nothing to gain by playing the poor winner now.
