    Good idea lets determine this by dick length. Extra points for girth. Its the only fair process.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    I think it is someone who is influential in some way and well known. A huge dick would be someone who has a dominant member and I've not seen any mention in this thread about possession of dominant members.

    well someone can be a huge dick, which is akin to being an asshole.

    It may not matter, but different styles evoke different responses in people. I respect your style a lot more than I ever respected JF's style. If the two of you had a contest to try to "get something from me", you would probably have a greater chance of success.

    Tell that to all the gay people who can't get married.
    Or to people who lose their homes in hurricanes.
    Or someone burglarized at gunpoint.
    Well, I wouldn't compare his power to a hurricane, I can tell you that much. Maybe more like those tornado warning sirens...

    it's not MLK or Abraham Lincoln or some admirable and enduring application of power.
    Still, there are different types of power, all with different pro's/con's...
    ... but it's still power.

    People dominate through a variety of means.
    Of course. I guess my point is that there is no absolute measure, at least over this medium. Lincoln had real power though, I don't think comparing him to a message board personality is a good idea since his power was not derived through his personality...Lincoln could use legal force. MLK is a better comparison.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Based on how ayoitsStepho explained herself, it can really come down to who separate individuals see as the dominant, but there are some who seem to be well respected and liked all-around - wolfy comes in mind, though I imagine he might not care for such a title himself, which just adds to it.

    Generally, I'd have to say Sensors. Clearly less invested in the forum, while having a greater effect on it. That's from where I stand anyway.

    So dominance and deference is a group effort.

    In fact dominance and deference make the world go round.

    But the secret is to take it turn and turn about.

    As one moves from dominance to deference, the other moves in the opposite direction to maintain the balance.

    And so the dance of dominance and deference is unsurprisingly between at least two people.

    And when you have a dancing partner, you always have someone to blame. But sometimes, when the moon is full, you can forget yourself and become the dance.

    Indeed, we dance the dialectic.

    Or as my teacher told me, we live our contradictions.

    Or as another told me, we perceive by making distinctions. And between the distinctions lies the dialectic.

    And indeed, as you point out, it is the dialectic or 'conversation' that converts the Master-Slave dialectic to the dialect between liberal democracy and Islamism.

    We all speak the Hegelian dialect.
