When you say something controversial, of course people are going to want to fight you. When you say something everyone just nods along with, there's not a ton to say about it.

Zero.
Spoiler:
Because when you answer with “Hello?” you disqualify yourself.
Spoiler:
For real though, re-read that thread because you missed a lot of key facts. Reading comprehension is critical to actuarial success.

I think a lot of people come here to let off some steam. We get our "argue" out of our system with random internet trolls rather than coworker, family, and friend trolls in our real life.

If you believe that, you have to answer "Hello?" for life. Or else you owe me your signing bonus. Them's the rules.

I mean, you at least owe me an apology for misrepresenting me. It feels like you did it on purpose.
