Not everything is worth debating or discussing or analyzing or what the fuck ever.

I totally agree. But we do owe it to be civil to those who haven't been uncivil to us, and if you really are so right then it shouldn't be hard to say why. The more outlandish summat is, the easier to debunk it in a few short sentences, as has been done well on this thread. But I think that just throwing personal insults doesn't debunk anything, and just turns a forum into an infantile shouting match. Folks here, yourself included, are smart enough not to do that, and still not have to wade through extensive debates.

If you post something here it's presumably because you think your perspective should be heard more, that the world would be better if they understood that perspective. So doing things that switch folk off when easy alternatives are at hand kind of undermines the point of posting anything in the first place.

One of the main points of having discussions in public is to inform the thinking of the reasonable people reading, and it helps to keep them in mind when you're writing.
