When someone in the audience tried to insult the visiting lecturer, the visiting lecturer turned the attempted insult into a compliment. How come?

This sounds vagely familiar, I think I've heard a similar puzzle before. However, I don't remember the answer.

Does this happen as a university?
the visiting lecturer: H/A/M? F?
Is the visiting lecturer a professor/researcher from another university? a scientist? a politician? a famous person?
the "someone": H/A/M? F? a student? a professor? researcher?

Is it relevant what the visiting lecturer was talking about? A controversial topic?

Was the insult related to the person of the visiting lecturer? To what he was talking about?

Can we call the someone Cindy? And the visiting lecturer Marco?

Did Cindy insult Marco while he was talking? Afterwards? Beforehand? Did she shout the insult? So that everyone could hear it?
Was the insult related to his physical appearance? His voice? His theories/opinion? His argumentation?

Did Marco ask if there were any questions left? And then Cindy insulted him? Did she say that his argumentation was hard to follow? That one of his arguments is wrong?

Did Cindy say something generally insulting (like "You're an idiot")? Something that insulted Marco's views ("You'd have to be an idiot to believe that)? Or something that just disagreed with the views in a way that wasn't entirely name-calling (like "I don't know how anyone could think such a thing.")

Anyone who considers that a n insult won't last long on the lecture circuit. . .or anyone else, Having people one (or more) of your arguments is wrong is a hazard of belonging to the human race.

Well, there are different ways of telling someone that their argument is wrong...

Did Cindy interrupt Marco?
Is it relevant whether Cindy knew anything about the topic Marco was talking about? Did she?
Could this have happened if Marco hadn't been a visiting lecturer but one who is always there? Did Cindy hear him for the first time?
Is anything else about Marco relevant? Age? Race? Religion? About Cindy?

Is the setting (lecturer+audience) relevant? Or could it have worked if they were two friends disagreeing on something? She only attacked his arguments, correct? Did she use an adjective to describe them? Is her criticism some sort of well known fallacy?

Did she specifically mention his arguments in the comment?
His reasoning?

Since she didn't use an adjective, did she call him something? That implied an insult to his reasoning?
As in "You're a ____"?

Did her insult involve an obsolete or older meaning of a word?
And he chose to take it as meaning that older meaning?

Did she call him a pedant?

RECAP & HINT: Add this to the puzzle description: Cindy's intended ins ultimplied that Marco was a something like a "wiseguy" & he took it literally--as a compliment. Think of another word she might have used. She didn't use that word but finding it would make you ORT (on the right track.)

Mr Know-it-all? This (or your next guess) is the relevant expression she might have used. She didn't use it, but she said something that implied he was a glib know-it-all, It's a common criticism, What is it? or know-all? See previous answer. clever clogs? No, I never even heard that delightful expression before. Thanks for introducing me to it!!

****** SPOILER ***********
When Marco gave a lecturer once, he did his best to answer a series of questions from hostile questioner Cindy. "You've got an answer for everything," Cindy finally said. "Why, thank you, Marco replied "I try very hard to be well prepared, and I'm flattered that you think I've succeeded." And thank you, Shez, for solving this puzzle. Please see my new one!
