Gittin Daf 31

Rav Huna and Rav Chisda were sitting and Geniva passed by. One of them suggested rising to honor him, for he is learned. The other replied "Mekamei palga'ah neikum"? Should we stand up for one who instigates arguments?! We can learn a very important lesson from this; even though Geniva was learned, they would not accord him honor because he was bothering Mar Ukva. How much more so should we be extra careful not to instigate arguments.
please also see further explanations given below on the Ohr Sameach website.
