Well, time for me to hit the hay, at least mentally if not physically. If any of you monkeys can come up with suggestions for the further points of development suggested in post 88, while I sleep, I'd be most grateful

"When it all comes down to dust
I will kill you if I must
I will help you if I can" - Leonard Cohen
I've tentatively put some people on there by way of demonstrating what I mean, but by all means feel free to disagree. It's just a theory. It's a work in progress! (I actually dreamed it last night, literally)
Discuss - where are you? Do you see ways to improve the model? can you think of other axes to add? Can you help me think of a positive interpretation of why/how extreme "top left" people get there, apart from manipulation and defamation and foot stamping to persuade everyone they're right? Any other thoughts?
If any of you monkeys can come up with suggestions for the further points of development...
I am an orangutan, not a monkey. And don't pay me in bananas either.
BTW, I'm too busy banging away on a keyboard along with 99 of my compatriots testing some over-literal nut's hypothesis on 'replicating the bard's prose in 100 years' for whatever that means. But, I'll get back to you once we hammer out that first sonnet.
Suggestion 1: If someone could come up with a GUI way to have an interactive graph or even one of those 'windows' where you can place someone else on the graph, that would be neat-o!
Suggestion 2: I would also suggest (and I'm not kidding) an annoying/neutral axis. There are lots of people here purposely try to be annoying...and they aren't evenhalf as cute as me when I do it.
I can never find any threads that seem interesting to me and I haven't really made too many friends here. At any given moment, something might wake me up and my behavior might completely change. I can never tell ahead of time how I might act. There's so many different things at play. I just end up doing what seems right to me at the time.
I would probably be very close to the center, maybe a little higher, but I would bounce around between the sections.
