Whatever people are getting out of the thread, it is a troll thread so the op can get some sort of jollies.
Our hands are all moist and slippery with all the assistance we have given.
If someone comes along and presents an argument that forces me to reevaluate my thinking on a given issue, especially one that I feel strongly about, I view that person as having done me a favor. At the end of the day, if I'm honest with myself, I will better understand the issue, whether or not I'm ultimately persuaded by the argument.
I think the idea that the people reading this thread are vulnerable little children capable of being led by the nose down the garden path is insulting. You sound like cult members, anxious lest you be corrupted by the Internet.
