It's much like 'serious' actresses (Like Dame Joan Plowright, Vanessa Redgrave, Dame Helen Mirren) calling themselves 'Actors' because it gives them added gravitas and makes people take them seriously. Any old gal can be an 'actress'...it takes presence, and attitude to be an 'actoooor'.
And no, I don't want a debate about it, just adding a PoV to Wizard's long and excellent explanation.
Is your question now about 'overcoming debate'?
Or are we still on the original point of overcoming love of debate?
Because similarly, many people misquote the Bible and say "Money is the Root of all Evil" when in actual fact, it's "The LOVE of Money is the root of all evil"
So are you now wishing to avoid debate altogether, or to overcome this attachment to debate?
Say what you mean, and mean what you say....
(I think we need to clarify before we find ourselves having a play-mud-wrestle....! )
