For a topic on which we all agree, in principle, we've sure managed to have
a nice, friendly argument going on here.

I think you may have spoiled it all by that last line of yours.  What's to
argue, or even quibble about there?

Even the metaphor is appropriate, since the Dodo went because of predation
from animals that wern't part of the native animal population they'd evolved
to interact with.

Some would argue that the Blues is in as much danger from its fans as its
foes!  (gotta leave room for another argument here...)
