Asking to be called Doctor makes you pretentious and/or douchey.
Using it in an internet debate... well he kinda retracted that so I give him a pass

WTF base damage
Actually, PhD holders have as much right to the term "doctor" as MDs.
Doctor was originally used to describe people in teaching positions.
The reason you might come across PhD holders being vocal about it is because people don't generally default to calling them Dr unless they know the person's title. These people work hard for the degree, so I can't really knock them for wanting to be addressed as Dr. Although there are ways to be less snooty about it.
MDs don't have to worry about this. They are always addressed as doctor by default. They might be vocal if we all stop calling them "doctor." Who knows?
If I had a PhD, I wouldn't want to be addressed as Dr. Although I would want it in my written titles.

Medical Doctors never requested that sort of thing but the profs were always all too eager to mention their PhD. (How do you know if a prof has a PhD? Don't worry, they'll tell you..)
/ex Pharmacy jocky, didn't call the PharmD's docs either but I did use the title on the phone with physicians.
