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.
