Child Ballad 45 - King John and the Bishop:

"Brother," quoth the shepeard, "you haue heard itt,
That a foole may teach a wisemane witt"

Not that I claim to be wise, of course, but that is why I don't like ignoring people. Even the most extreme fool may give me insights I have otherwise missed.

But I can still be very selective about what I choose to respond to. Invitations to battle, for example, are things I try to decline.
