Do i have any reason to be worried?

So, we're having the house repainted, and the painters are using scaffolding to reach the high parts. A lightning storm is heading towards us, and im wondering if the house being surrounded by conductive galvanised steel poles significantly increases the chance of a lightning strike?

    You're fine. The ladders are touching the ground so on the off chance that did happen, it would just go into the ground.

    What is so bad about denigrating, labeling, and ostracizing people for their opinions?

    If it completely surrounds the house, you have a Farady Cage - which is a much better deal than you would otherwise have.

    Very unlikely. The scaffolding is grounded anyway so any strike to it will run down the poles to ground.  Exactly the same as a lightning conductor.
