    Most languages include a verb to be. Those who advocate E Prime consider this verb a Bad Thing. Trolls find no clear arguments why this verb might actually "be" a Good Thing, and would ask others to comment:

    Factions might actually consider to be to mean something different based on their factionally defined attitudes, e.g. Pinks might think of it as based on social capital and trust, Greens might think of it as a form of ecological wisdom and refuse to accept that things "are" except via an ecological lens, etc.. It is not clear if becomes, remains, equals is any better.
