    this a better place to be. Or to improve the discussions and arguments that we engage in. Lets face facts there are people who enjoy be provocative purely for the sake of being provocative. These folks are different that the "devils advocate' or people who use the Socratic method. They enjoy throwing verbal or rhetorical hand grenades or stink bombs just for fun. They contribute nothing of any real value and tend to have poor skills in a debate.

    Let's not encourage them to continue. Rather let's encourage them to be better. Better thinkers, better advocates.
