By inference proponents of non-consensual PvP in a discussion are 
also likely to be immature, exhibiting inferior emotional development, 
or, as has even been suggested on past threads, sociopathic.  

Well I suppose both sides can insist on discussing it. ;)

Is it theoretically possible that there are many more immature 
anti-PKers than immature pro-PKers?  
Is the inability to deal with or handle harassment, violence, or offensive 
behavior without recourse to authority a sign of immaturity or stunted
emotional development?
