is to elicit angry responses from the community?
Why are you interested in ways to anger the community?
It's the best way to see true colors.
I disagree. I do, however, think that it's a great way to alienate yourself from the community and get yourself banned.
This one might be off to a good start.
Speaking of showing true colors...
I know what you're asking Math. In this anti-teacher environment we now live in, it isn't hard!
I don't think it's the questions, it's some of the response-posts that get angry replies.
I don't know how you can see really true colors here. I mean do you ever truly get to know some one here, online? Nope. People let you know as much about them as they want, (obviously that makes sense) and it's very easy to hide, or even make up things. So how would you get their 'true colors' ?
You can't Ling, and anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional. I know what Math is getting at. Our average American public is very anti-teacher because, you know, we belong to those evil unions and worse, we have that HUGE RETIREMENT to look forward to!
It seems to me that the OP wants to get angry responses not from the community at large but from us here at A to Z.
This is probably the best question you can ask to alienate the most people. We are a generally conservative bunch of friends.
And why would anyone set out to anger people??
And wouldn't you know it....much easier than even I imagined
OK Math, you tricked me! Now I'm ******! Let's step outside and settle this RIGHT NOW!
Just got back in. Where were you, you coward?
Seems like a typical response.
What a weird question Are trying to see who can have a heated discussion without taking it personally or without resorting to angry posts?
I guess I need some clarification
This is a reasonable response, but a terrible answer
Gosh I feel like the Riddler.
Dude, I was just playin'! Joking! Chill. I thought you were one of the good guys here?
You disgust me.
Any question that seems to threaten someone's deep rooted beliefs. better answer? Teachers don't seem to like change
Not really though.
That's a question type. You have to be more specific, but it shows improvement
Is it ok for me to pump at work?
There we go. Make sure the question details contain plenty of provoking details, and you'll go far kid!
What's the quickest way to lose any credibility with a group of professional educators???
Answer: Not having a sense of humor.
Just playing devil's advocate here, but i think that Mathemagician was being a bit tongue and cheek with the post. Just trying to keep the peace! ]

.....by asking what's the quickest way to elicit an angry response?
Sorry....a bit confused....are you just trying to be factious or actually asking a question?
Triple like Alice's question and adding my own questions...
What purpose is this debate supposed to serve? Are we supposed to think it humorous? No one seems to be laughing.
I disgust you? Hell, I disgust myself!
Sense of humor? How dare you suggest we have a sense of humor? I'd rather let these impossible jobs eat me alive, put me on ziggy boom pills, lose sleep, and end up wearing diapers and sucking my thumb on mental disability!
THEN, I would be qualified to get promoted! hahahahahahahaa
What do you give out on the first day of school?
Whose job is harder - elementary teachers or secondary teachers?
Do you tell your students your clothing size?
Should students be required to say the pledge?
Atheists v. christians part 394
Have you ever been personally victimized by [insert screen name here]?
Maybe you should ask what WOULDN'T antagonize people... sometimes the most random topics turn into personal attacks...
I think these are some award winners right here! And I couldn't ask what wouldn't antagonize people without it antagonizing people :lol:
I'm personally offended - you just tried to get me out of my "serious zone" for NO good reason!!!!!!!!:help:
I was taking a drink out of my water bottle when I read this :lol:.
I think we should seriously take a micro-look at what the impact is of deciding whether to give a student a C- or a C or a C+. Sounds like a barrel of fun to me!
Also along with one of silverspoon's "Supply and Demand: Why Elementary Teachers Should Make the Least Amount of Money" and "Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks: Forcing Some of the Direct Instruction Out of the Classrooms of the Silverbacks"
