I am trying not to let the fact that the Con-P are or have been steamed
about imflamatory retoric used by other Pro-P to be an excuse for closing
this discussion. I AM TRYING TO BE POLITE. My ideas have been called
evil, nightmarish, and a joke. Many people seem far more concerned about
my personal reasons for supporting principalities then about those
reasons I believe justify principalities. And people keep trying to
redefine the debate, and then I getted blamed when it happens.

I certainly don't think the Fun quotient of principalities can be
determined by the level of Fun in this discussion.

I think the debate has not achieved anything because the Pro-P let it die
in the face of any solid opposition. When anyone says it wouldn't be
good or it wouldn't be fun, I feel they should be required to bring forth
reasons too. I have heard ONE good reason for opposing, or at least not
joining, principalities, and it's group specific, not universal, and not
applicable to the whole Kingdom.

No, I'm definitally achieving some of my goals. There is movement on
more than one issue.
