As for them having an innate need to leave stuff, I have an innate need to nick stuff from Tescos. It goes back thousands of generations longer than their need. So what? Should I?

LOL - exactly my point about why it's a waste of time to argue with someone that has an opinion they are set on already, or even those just being devil's advocate. They will argue eristically till the cows come home.

Shoplifting can be a similar urge, some people do it that dont need the item and can easily pay for it if they wanted. And you're right, having the urge doesn't mean you should give in to it - especially if it's damaging. But the treatment is the same in either case, just telling people no isn't going to work if it's a deep seated psychological urge, but working with the person to identify ways to fill or supress the urge without doing the harm does tend to work.
