    They're all grammatically correct. I prefer #1.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Why inflammatory? That's what Julius Caesar said to his troops before the campaigns against the Gallic tribes…

    Well, Caesar wasn't being affable and conciliatory, was he?

    He couldn't get much more inflammatory than that.
