>I personally salute the moderator's decision of bringing clarity

I would also, except that clarity cannot be achieved in debate unless
you _accurately grasp, reproduce, & criticize_ your opponents'
arguments.  Straw persons prevent us from achieving clarity.

The moralist dichotomy of the virtues of manual labor and the vices
of mental labor a la Rousseau also diverts us away from clarity, not
to mention Marxism.
