I maintain that ever taking a Devil's Advocate position is not just the epitome of lying, base, deceitful, rude, dull and treacherous. It is also satanic and prone to Destroying Your Very Soul. (Ok, I don't actually believe that, I'm just advocating it to see if anyone agrees or disagrees in an interesting way.)

Except for positions which have no valid supporting arguments. Although the practice of inventing such arguments is an interesting and stimulating one. "All clouds are purple" --Vitenka
