|I also note, however, that the nastiest questions get replies, whereas some polite questions just dangle over there.|
That's because the fundies aren't really out to communicate anything --- they're mostly out to feed their massive martyr complexes and brag about how repressed they are . . .
A cyber-friend of mine on the DebunkCreation list did an experiment once that illustrated the point. For several months, whenever he wrote a message to a creationsit, he would flip a coin --- heads, he was nice and polite, tailes, he altered his nice polite message by gratuitously adding some insults and swear words.
Guess which got the larger number of creationist replies . . . (twice as much, IIRC) . . . .
