Who are your favorite/least favorie people to debate with on theis forum?

Simple question who here entertains you with either a good debate or even just their demeanor on how they reply to a post, even though they are on the other side of the political aisle.Who here makes you facepalm with their blatently partisan and agressive responses that have little basis in reality?Personally BTC1 is alwyas fun to get into a thread. I may not agree with him on most things, in fact the only time I have ever agreed with him was about Yucca mountain, but he is funn to argue with. It is usually in a calm and respectful manner.On the other side MahopcJack has the tendancy to veer off into the absurd, making claims about various democrats that have little basis in reality and fact.So who do you enjoy/get annoyed by on these boards?

"Ill report the thread myself."

As expected, there's no need for you to do that. :)

This is a forum for political discussions, not GB member discussions. Like others have indicated, this thread is simply creating a fertile ground for inappropriate personal attacks.

***Moderators, please lock this thread.***

"I don't know if the mods appreciate discussions of other individuals."

I expect you're right. A topic like this could easily become a personal attack column.

Yeah, this'll probably get locked*. I don't know if the mods appreciate discussions of other individuals.

*but just because I realize that doesn't mean I'm the one asking, before you start pointing fingers.

_______
On a substantive level, I can't stand arguing with people who believe every conspiracy that comes down the road, people who name-call, and people who generalize about everyone on the other side of the great divide.
I do like to argue with people who are logical, even if their basic precepts are different from mine, and people who are consistent. I think nstrdnvstr is the best example of this.
