Jim,

All I'm saying Jim, is that you can hold up a mirror without being the mirror. And the more you're able to do that, the less rude/attacking responses you're going to get because
1) you're going to look like you're open-minded and in search of answers, too; and
2) people will look stupid attacking you for no reason.

Turn with the energy of the conversational-punch, rather than try to conversationally counter-punch.

... Or I could just be talking.
