There cannot be debate without disagreements. One liners are almost always taken out of context to support one's argument. Quoting more than a few lines ensures that proper weight is given to the meaning derived from Gurbani rather than relying on one's own subjective interpretation. Debate should always be a means to an end, rather than an end in itself. Providing proper context for the lines quoted helps to ensure that the discussion reaches a conclusion, rather than dragging on endlessly.
