The question that will ACTUALLY ALWAYS start a flamewar

Why can’t anyone come up with a good question? It’s not at all difficult to start a flamewar.

Examples:
Abortion: right or wrong?
Mac or PC?
Should Marijuana be legalized?
Should gay marriage be legal?
What’s your religion?
Does god exist?

Those are all really incendiary topics, which, when brought up, always end in a flamewar.

Note that these questions are merely to illustrate a point, and you should not attempt to answer them, nor should you become offended. As stated previously, these are merely to illustrate a point.

Actually, I find the best question to start a flamewar with is “What is true metal?”

@ShadowFury

Those are all too easy, plus (besides the PC vs Mac debate) none of them really have anything to do with intern3ts.
I was talking about something that would be relevant to the interests of most people on KYM in a context that most of us would understand to be a incineratory topic.

Oh, and @HackerOnHacker. Dude, don’t even start that crap. You’ll start something you can’t stop.

Hmm…
7chan or 4chan?
Anonymous or Anonymous Borg?
Furries? ←Not really effective on KYM.
Boxxy or Tabby?

All I can think of at the moment.

Lastly, HackerOnHacker is a girl.
Inb4 no girls on the internets.
