I'd prefer that not be the basis of a rebuttal since "you're wrong" is nothing more than an opinion. As far as the actual issue that was being debated goes, I agree with the poster that told another poster "you're wrong", but I don't think that's the proper way to respond to fellow user. I think a far more tactful approach than telling someone they're wrong is to make a sound argument to oppose the other user's stance. If you're incapable of doing that, I suggest you don't bother responding. Absolutely, there are FAR more egregious offenses than this, but if anyone thinks that is the most tactful way to respond to another, we'll have to agree to disagree. Let your facts speak for themselves rather than simply saying 'I'm right, you're wrong'. In and of itself, most people (understandably) don't tend to take that particularly well.
I'm not going to get into why the user that prompted your question was banned for a single day, as I'd be violating my own stance that a matter such as this is between the user and the moderator(s), other than to say that this user knows exactly why he was banned and it most definitely was not for telling another user "you're wrong". Keep in mind when you're only hearing from one person in a matter such as this, you're only getting half the story - at best.
