Asking a question is not the same thing as giving a speech.

The set of things you find interesting is not necessarily coterminous with the set of things relevant to the topic under discussion.

The longer a meeting continues, the less value any question can add; as a corollary: past a certain point in a meeting the only thing of value anyone can say is, “Move to adjourn.”

If you want people who hold stupid ideas to agree with your nonstupid ideas, there are better ways to start than calling their stupid ideas stupid.
