Top definition
An interesting, engaging way of deviating or wandering away from the main topic or purpose when debating; departing from the principal line of argument, plot, study, etc. in order to confuse the opponent and utilise the confusion by declaring victory after the opponent confesses they do not follow. When an argument in itself is a digression and possibly nonfactual or entirely false, yet holds the attention or curiosity of the observer.

Coined by a Finnish man, who wished to remain anonymous.
His argument was, in the end, merely digressting.
