> _if they want to indulge in 'worthless debates' they should be allowed to._

Calling a debate "worthless" is not the same as disallowing such debates.

Just like one has the right to engage in debates (worthless or not), one also has the right to call out such debates when they are deemed worthless.

Tilting at windmills, don quixote?
