Nota Bene

This is what I learned this past weekend.

When describing someone who plays devil's advocate, just for the sheer fun of being contrarian, one often says that such a person enjoys baiting another.

When describing someone who is an expert in the field, one often says that such a person is a master.

When describing a person expert at playing devil's advocate, however, one should probably not say that the person is a master baiter. Just sayin'.
