Well, if I'm relatively thoughtful and rational, I feel I ought add that I personally think Discobiscuit is pretty thoughtful and rational.
Everyone has their moments, and I don't follow his every move, but he strikes me as one of the more thoughtful and rational people here.
Coriolis: you kind of remind me of Highlander sometimes, but with a colder, steelier, more dangerous, more eclectic, more esoteric kinda edge, whereas Highlander is warmer and more ingratiating (almost Feish -- perhaps e6ish and/or e9ish). You have a warmth too, but it's less overt, and is probably only experienced by some, and only after they've gotten to know you.
The next person can skip me if they feel like. I primarily wanted to respond to Coriolis.
