I have, perhaps unfortunately, sometimes felt compelled to reply in some of those threads, especially when the religious fanatics start peddling their unsupported and unscientific beliefs. Generally I prefer to avoid those topics online, however, since they tend to raise one's blood pressure and they certainly solve no problems and change no-one's mind.
This mechanism gives me an excuse to "just not go there" (literally) as some additional steps are involved.
One could call it a sort-of forum version of "count to ten before speaking"! <g>
