Let's not feed the troll. His belly is full already. We should have closed down the thread when it started. Partially my fault there.
In general when someone's first post is designed to spark a debate, that's trolling. It's like throwing a grenade into a movie theatre. Just report the post to a moderator and leave it alone.
Now it's not the topic that is trolling but the way he presented it. If someone wants to discuss aspects of this topic, please start another thread.
