However I think that 5000 is a good spot for "Guardian of Reason." ;D

Do you think that because it's the group you're currently in? :P

No. In fact I'm not particularly fond of that user rank, but 5,000 is a sort of landmark and "Guardian" implies a solid position in the community. If a better user rank is proposed for 5,000, I'd have no objections to changing it and moving "Guardian of Reason" up on the list.

I was joking there. :sidesmile: ;)

The way I see it, there is a certain arrogant streak to the rank "Guardian of Reason", but I like it. It's like one of those badges you want to wear, even if you aren't always reasonable.  :shifty:
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

Yes, that's me.

Yep, I got the humor there, and should have added a smiley before my reply.  ;)  You've also put your finger on the reason for my feelings about my current user rank.  :cheers:

Recusant, your current Avatar is appropriate.  You input does remind me of the many insightful pronouncements of Isaac Assimov.

You flatter me overmuch, Icarus, but I thank you.  :embarrassed:

I've been an admirer of Asimov since my childhood, and today is one of the days that I celebrate his birthday. Nobody knows precisely on which date he was born, but October 4 is one, January 2 the other.
