    You must be the cleverest. After all, you seem to be the only person who knows that 'clever' actually means 'people I agree with'.
    Actually, Bagration and Lib take practically the opposite stance as me to everything. They argue well.

    Howard as well. I agree with him on absolutely nothing, but he isn't TSR Debater of The Year for nothing..

    There are plenty of admissions tutors that roam these websites (including from Oxford + Cambridge) - my money would be on them.
    Woah what the hell? do they look for what people say about their unis or something?

    If so, Hey Southampton, can you hurry up and give me an offer I really wanna go to your uni

    I'd rate UniOfLife, Socrates, Bismark, Howard, and Meus very highly.
    I would probably add L i b and Oswy to that list

    True for L i b although I've been arguing with him today! I would argue against Oswy simply because from what I know he's a damn dirty socialist :p: haha. BTW Where are the votes for me? :mad: Zionists unite! Vote PeeWee! :p:

    Tough question, but will have to say someone like Bagration, Lib, Overground, Melancholy, Democracy..
    I would disagree. I'd sooner believe that generalebriety could solve a simultaneous equation faster than me. :p:

    Why are so many of the nominations on here for people who spend all day in D&D? What about some of the maths buffs? Yusuf, DFranklin, Geneb etc.

    Oswy is very well-informed on the social-science front. I rate him quite highly.

    It seems you're just picking on people with different views though - Pavlik always argues coherently with many sources. Also, having controversial views does not make one stupid.

    This is quite blatently untrue, Yuffie. Pavlik is almost a self-confessed racist - he seems pretty indifferent to that description. He does support his views with science. However he cannot link his scientific evidence for distinctions between the various human "races" to a decent and well-conceived political view. That people can be Jewish, Black, White, Asian or otherwise offers absolutely no reason for why somebody should place much consideration on the colour of one's skin. That racial distinctions do exist is not something that I dispute excitedly. That people are allowed to offer zero attention to the colour of a person's skin is what concerns me. Until Pavlik can then use his anthropological evidence in a discussion concerning the interests of human beings (i.e. the freedom of association of man) then I have no regrets in calling his views not only morally lacking, but quite clearly ill-conceived and irrational.

    Oh so published and recognized academics on the forum? That what you are looking for OP? I think as a student forum we are more the next generation of the above rather than the current. :p:
