    Not if it is a topic that has qualities and quantifiable views from both directions. I do not usually ask the question but the more all parties learn about the views, statistics and over all stances bring light and knowledge to the question asked. The more informed an individual is about all sides of a subject is essential in any debate. In college writing courses you may have to take an opposing view per the professor for just this reason, it forces one to do much more research and gain a greater understanding. I cannot agree with your statement of "quintessentially rude". I come to the forums to expand my knowledge as well as enjoy myself and am under the impression from many of the debates I have partaken in that a large quantity of the people on this and other forums do the same. I view this as a contribution not a contradiction. To be honest it can take much more of my time to play the devil’s advocate than to simply concede to a point of view. I do not get rude, or attack anyone I simply argue a different perspective.
    Take it how you will.

    I don't think that it is rude, pfires, if you argue a point to the best of your ability respecting rational persuasion and bringing nothing but facts that you can substantiate. Because, in that case, it doesn't matter what you are arguing but how you present the belief as worthy of human consumption. Good debate is healthy. People gotta learn to stretch their minds - they won't break.

    Still, thinking is a dangerous thing. Especially if one thinks that they know something when the correct post is, "I really don't know". But how often do you see that on the internet?
    But this site has a feature that apparently no one has mentioned: the "ignore" list. I'm sure that my literary style and wit has earned me a place on a few; and I'm no stranger to its use. So if you're offended beyond just skipping, banish the offender to your "ignore" bin. You'll still see their name when they post. You just don't have to smell their presumptuous, uneducated
    To put a user in your ignore list, just left-click the offender's username hyperlink and click, view profile. Once there, in the upper left, click, Add to ignore list. If the dolt says something quotable, one of the more respected forum members will quote in response. Otherwise, it's one less irritation to thin skin.

    You shouldn't really let the same questions cycling around bother you. It's not like there is just one idiot asking the same question over and over, and some people arent really internet savvy...I know im not. So the next time you see "WHAT GLOCK SHOULD I BUY NEXT!?!?" dont let it get under your skin...just read another post.

    And if one is arguing a point that one does not personally espouse, it is common courtesy and consideration to let every one know that.

    I agree with that 100 percent. No problem playing devils advocate. But if you don't state that and I see conflicting ideals from the same person in different threads I will the think: Troll, or moron and I won't beleive anything they say which negates any real factual information they might have. And if they give a "this happened to me" story I will ignore it.
