In many cases simply by showing your disapproval you open up the thread to new possibilities - it's just important to learn to recognise the difference between a statement that closes the discussion and a statement that promotes the discussion; E.g;
Avoid the closing statements - they are made by people who have already made up their minds and are posting only in an attempt to sway the other person to their belief, or in otherwords - promoting propoganda.

Surely there will always be attention seekers and individuals who miss the real point, but unless there is some sort of collation of accepted ideas, then this useless pseudo intellectual war will continue ...
