    Ahh, but I disagree.
    If someone has a valid point to make and reasonable skills with which to make it why would they resort to low brow behaviors that diminish the chance that someone will take their point seriously?
    From any reasonable POV they wouldn't.

    Colorful creativity or breaking up the monotony.

    They may very well view the person to whom they are making the point with contempt. The point is that insults in no way change the actual message. If I am imparting information to someone, whether I cal him "Your Highness" or "Dumb Ass", the information is the same. Whether the receiver chooses to accept it is on him.
    Gentlemen and ladies, I hate inflation, I hate taxes, and I hate Communism. Do something about it. Ronald Reagan's instructions to his first assembled Cabinet.

    Yes. Quite sure. You seldom raise interesting points. It matters little whether you attempt to insult someone or not.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Period. End of lesson.

    Most. For example I would guess most would find me the least disagreeable of the two of us. Do you disagree?
