I think it's partially the growth in lazyass debating and people not evolving from the playground. If you say, 'most Muslims are moderate,' the retort would be something like, 'So you support raping women?!' or 'Typical Liberal!' neither of these counterpoints are implied by the opening statement.

It's not only ATS either.
