Default Re: Button steal hand leads to heated theory argument

What about calling, 3 betting, or checking to GET to showdown for another reason.

The pool of players that play that HG 30-60 are pretty small... I think it's important to let players know that you can't be check raised / bullied off hands.

Right wrong or indifferent... the players in that game know that I'm the aggressor... I'm GETTING to showdown. For that reason I get more action with my big hands... and I feel like people don't try to "get" me to fold by making "plays"

Yeah, those are meta-game considerations and require more information than we have here. Such things are variation plays for image and outside what would be the standard theoretical way to play a situation. If you folded to a couple of check raises recently then that would be cause to maybe call, like you say.
