    I find your response quite reasonable -- compared to how I myself would respond under similar circumstances.

    Actually, you guessed right when you said I forgot. I honestly consider you one of the more reasonable people I've met online. Of course, that's coming from someone the US Government has certified as insane -- but only because they're scared of the fact that I know the moon landings were a hoax. The truth is, NASA didn't get us to the moon. Steven Spielberg did. They hired him to fake the landings, but he insisted on filming on location.

    so I can be considered reasonable at that point of decision when I must change my mind...???

    and if I refuse to submit to someone else's claim......I am not reasoning???

    well gee....I guess I DON'T belong on your list

    and I think that's reasonable

    I'm not making any claims about who is not reasonable. Just making claims about who I myself happen to believe is reasonable.

    oh....so you ARE serious....

    I think you're being unreasonable

    that my stance is often unshakeable....doesn't mean I'm stubborn

    just unshakable

    you do reason?.....some lines of thought are firm
    and changing your mind when you had a firm belief....is unreasonable

    I didn't think it would. It's just that I didn't care how it would end for me. I thought it was time that some of the folks I regard as more than usually reasonable got a bit of recognition for it -- after all, it's an honestly hard thing to accomplish.

    Now that you ask, Vinayaka, Luis, SomeRandom, Jainarain, Satyamevajayanti, Sayak83, Shivasomashekhar, Kirran, Kapalika, Von Bek, Jaskaran Singh, PunkdBass. I think Hindu forum is fortunte to have so many reasonable people.

    I think these kinds of threads are in bad form. They can make people feel left out and insulted. They tend to be more about favoritism and popularity than anything else.

    I'm going to disagree with you on one of those names, and I'll leave it at that.

    I agree there is always the danger that threads such as these will devolve into favoritism. Given human nature, that's bound to happen to some extent. Hopefully not to a great extent, but we'll see.

    On the other hand, it seems to me that it takes considerable hard work to be more or less reasonable -- especially on the internet (where anonymity eliminates some of the social pressure to be reasonable) -- and that such people as try to be reasonable deserve to now and then be recognized for the efforts they make.


    This thread is not about who people think isn't reasonable, it's about who people think is reasonable. To look at it and conclude that so-and-so isn't reasonable because their name hasn't yet appeared here is to read way too much into it.

    As for people being insulted by threads such as these. Well, some people are insulted by nearly everything and everyone. You can't go through life paying much attention to such people or you'll end up doing nothing, saying nothing for risk of giving them offense.

    Quit pissing on other people's ideas of who is reasonable. You're welcome to state your own. You're not welcome to dump on other people's ideas.

    Disagreeing with someone isn't "dumping" on them. I said I was going to leave it at that.

    Thanks! I know @Kirran and @Jainarayan fairly well, and I consider them both reasonable people. Just goes to show how forgetful I am that I didn't list either in my OP. I blame them for not reminding me, of course.

    Good, you generally agree with the eleven other names, which sort of vindicates me. :D :D
    I was talking generally about Hindu forum, you too have always been reasonable.
