Most people quickly learn that we are all very poor judges of the quality of our own takedowns of others. It's just a fact of human nature that we are heavily biased toward our own arguments and are incapable of objectively evaluating how devastating we really were. So the true measure of whether a post was "a thing of beauty" can be made best by third parties, to a lesser extent by the person attacked, and to zero extent by the person making the attack. And when someone needs to call attention to their own post to crow over its devastation, it diminishes both them and the post even more.

This is still really something you should have figured out by now, assuming you're as smart as you think you are.
