Probably because it takes two to start a real flame war.
Sometimes you do see one side of the debate flaming, and the other side showing
restraint.

To tell you the truth I think moderation is okay in such cases, there is no
reason why one should put with being called and idiot and not respond in the
same tone. It is not easy to be civil when arguing with a savage.
