The state of being an ass comes from within, not from your answers to
questions.  Look within to see if you're being an ass or not.

Hint: "claim" is pretty -- well, ass-ish.

Now if you're actually asking me for advice on how not to be an ass
(which is a pretty damned quirky thing to be asking of me!), I'd suggest
the following:

        If you don't know the answer to a question, just STFU instead of
        talking just to hear your own voice (or typing just to hear your
        keyboard click)!

I hope you find that helpful.  Please enjoy the rest of your day.
