I totally do not see them as reasonable. Not at all. Not just because of their politics, but because of how invective their attacks on the characters of people with opposing political views as theirs. Not at all reasonable.

Just saying.


Mate you really have to learn the difference between left wing and centralist ideology. I mean I thought such a political creature as yourself would know the difference. Just because some one is opposed to the right does not make them left.

I feel loved~ <3

I think the entire election cycle really dragged us down as a forum and in turn I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels sort of ground down by it all. It can be hard to not be snappy when it feels like you're having the same thread/argument for the 14th or 15th time. So this thread is a welcome reprieve and a good reminder.

If I try to rattle off a list I think it'd get a bit too long and I would probably forget someone than feel bad about it. I don't want to just rattle off everyone that could be construed as being on my "side" of the political divide. Such as how I sometimes end up in a decidedly unsexy threesome with octo and rawratl on a topic wherein I find myself moist with respect. ( <cough> ).

I've found Ninjitsukuo to be eminently reasonable regardless of topic. I'll put in another vote for mxdan and PrinceJudar too.

I also have a lot of respect for those who can hold a discussion without having it erode into an argument or a troll off. Even if I don't agree with them. Heck, especially if I don't agree with them. I may not always agreed with Judar, Alma or Auroloose for example but I respect them for being reasonable and/or thoughtful with their arguments.

For me, the best outcome of a particularly heated debate is reaching a respectful point of "agree to disagree". It feels like more often than not in recent months that some people in debates will go from arguing their position to simply trying to upset or destroy the person they are arguing with. It's very tiring, gets stressful and honestly just isn't healthy for anyone involved.

So its nice to have a thread that is, you know, not that. >.>

We are all, ultimately, actual people behind the keyboard.

1) Runec - I have a respect for Runec that goes beyond that of his intellect and obvious political alignment with my own. It has to do with his sense of humor. It is easy to get wrapped up in the political hyperbole but often the lightheartedness he brings to the table brings us back to reality. It's a nature that I think is overlooked in the boards. At the end of the day, we are all people with our own concerns. His personality is one that reminds us of this. Comedy is a language that overcomes boundaries.


That's actually humbling, thank you.

I have a sneaking suspicion he's actually physically, mentally, and spiritually incapable of such a thing.

I would put Runec at the top of my list, I forget which thread, but the other day he made a post and his avatar would've been the perfect gif to put under it. 2,3,4 a few people could fit those. Xanthar would definitely be #5, dude is a troll, but when not trolling does make good points.

I feel like I should be on this list somewhere too, but then I remember, I usually only post when I am tired/morally outraged and so my posts rarely... eh... are coherently intelligent

Anyone who is willing to do something more to support what they say in a disagreement than simply a "this is true because I said so" is reasonable to me.

Asking for more on CR would be asking for too much...

Intelligence, knowledge, and articulation would be a different topic.

Hello, PV here, and after pondering about my latest rant, I thought I balance it out with a thread with an assessment of the intelligence of other forums.

This can tell me a few things.

-Who is deemed most intelligent
-An interesting look in perceived bias

And uh....I do not know.

Just to be clear, I am doing this to be number one of anything because a couple of you would not accept my godhood, though if you were going to put me on a list, I prefer the number 4, not to be too full of myself or anything. I mean, IT IS NOT LIKE YOU HAVE TO PUT ME ON THE LIST AT ALL.

Rank it 1-5.

Also, no calling other forumers dumb without permission.

Therefore, you may call me stupid, though I prefer you reason why.

Okay, begin!


1. Auroraloose
2. PrinceJudar
3. staphen
4. Ninjitsukuo.
5. nanikore2

Honorable mention

for most reasonable - PapaNeko
for most tsundere - PeripheralVisionary - " I mean, IT IS NOT LIKE YOU HAVE TO PUT ME ON THE LIST AT ALL."

Meh, I'm neither particularly intelligent nor reasonable. If I get the feeling a conversation is moot, I stop bothering.

But that right there is both intelligent and reasonable.

1.DeadlyOats : because in a forum filled with leftist, its good to at least have one person from the right to add to the conversations. It be boring otherwise.!

You think everyone who disagrees with you ever is a leftist though, so I doubt anyone is really surprised you think that.

Oh and good job not attacking the characters of people with opposing political views while complaining about people supposedly attacking the characters of people with opposing political views.

Very reasonable.

They do. you may be blind to it, or just don't relies it because it does not effect you. And we are off topic... so lets not speak of this any further.. or I have to report my self. and you for braking forum rules. I hate to do that to my self and you. after all I like relaxing and teasing people on this forum.. I hate to loose it.
