I know it's not my place in the RPG forum, but I did see that argument you had yesterday. If you want to convince someone, there is another approach, positive pull. It happened when I had an argument with a battle user over archiving CAVs, so I made a thread called Historians in Anime Vice and told him about it. That put a positive pressure, making him feel acknowledged and at the same time, he carry out his task with pride.
*I use he instead he/or she to make it simple for me.
I'm not saying you should compliment someone you don't like. It's another suggestion.
Nice write up, SamJaz. I like how you engage your readers.
