Do something funny with the host's name (we've covered that already a few
times), so the host feels inferior and you look like a very WISE person:

Lesson #2

If the host is sending messages about being afraid to take sides, for example:

>>3) I am interested in the exchange of ideas, but I am on no one elses
>>side. This statement of identity is mean to make this explicit.

(1) Intimidate, like BIG Brother:

>Hey, pal,

(2) Make an impression that your side is much stronger, so you don't care
where the jerk is. Make a joke out of it, so the SOB will quickly crawl
back to YOU without loosing face (that's what he cares about most if he
mentions taking sides). Don't leave any doubt that the sides HAVE to be taken.

>we need more people like you who are not on my side!
