The original question from Larry was:

"Why does the Argentine tango spawn such passionate controversies?"

If Amaury's answer is correct and that the controversies reveal more about the participants than about the dance, does that mean the question can be re-phrased to:

"Why does the Argentine tango attract this type of participant?"
