If you think that if the statement is not accepted without argument then there is no point in trying to argue for it it is not a very discussive attitude.

In order for arguing to be of any use at all, some statements must be accepted without argument. Arguments don't work without shared premises.

Thus when there is a disagreement it is good to share why one is of the stance one is to be able to compare whether a common premise base can be reached or not. Treating every statement as an axiom is rather extreme.
