Should probably just firebomb the entire Politards forum since clearly compromise is about as likely in there as it is in real politics, and the police frown on real firebombs.

I don't think it's the conservatives who merit a seat as much as the gun nuts.

You're vehemently anti-gun, and the others are uninterested.

Well 72.3% of ATF threads involve someone calling a mod a Nazi, I guess you could just open that up to calling any poster you don't like a Nazi in here.

I am in the middle. I strongly believe in individualism, but I am also pursuing a PhD, so I can't just ignore peer reviewed studies. I think there are potential issues with some of the studies that have been cited, but I am sure that future work will demonstrate whether or not my issue is actually a problem (I believe there might be omitted variables). I have not looked at the studies closely (I have only read abstracts), so they may have addressed the potential issues.

this. DBJ and ikes would also be terrible choices.

I'm not sure Ikes would be bad.

I'm not sure that leaving a 4-year-old alone with a gun, a blow torch, and a bottle of poison that's the same color as Hawaiian Punch would end badly either. But it's not something that should be tried.

Ehh... ikes is far from an idiot (he's done some occasionally very good stuff on college football at mgoblog). I wouldn't think somebody who clearly gets so much pleasure out of being deliberately contrarian would be a great choice for a mod, but you could pick worse people.

Yeah, I'm sure Ikes couldn't be any worse of a mod than the mod who follows him around and trolls 70 pct of his posts.
