This is a discussion. People are making themselves understood, joking a bit to keep it light, and working toward consensus even as we acknowledge that true agreement is unlikely.
Just because it's not 6 pages of people agreeing with you doesn't mean it's a bad discussion.
I didn't expect it would be people agreeing with me. I expected people having a discussion, but when the discussion turns into "who cares what so-and-so says?" It starts to not be a good discussion. I obviously care or I wouldn't have started the thread.
