I really don't care about going into the details on a lot of nonsense, there's too much real stuff to learn without wasting time on things that clearly aren't worth consideration. yet some knowledge is useful for what is a fruitful exercise, carrying the implications of a position to their rational ends. That way, if the statement is absurd in its own right, then it can be shown as such in its own context. I often find myself getting sucked into discussions of the absurd for this reason, the absurdity is what makes the otherwise tedious interesting.
