Maybe you should check the poll and see what the majority really thinks.
I think he means the majority are reasonable, whatever their opinion is. I do wonder what the results would be if the poll included all three positions, though, not just waylander's.

Sir Spiff, all non-Geneforge nonsense aside, Barzahl created drakons. Humans created all new creation templates.

From what I hear, I doubt Waylander would consider anyone who votes for humans as superior as "reasonable". But what is reason to the unreasonable? And (though it is probably repetitive to say this) what is reasonable to Waylander?

*Angry choking sound*

Read. . . the ****ing. . . eleven pages of this thread. . . to find out. . .

Waylander is unreasonable, simply by refusing to accept reason unless it's expressed purpose is to
benefit him.

And if you'll excuse Nalyd, he has to go get banned from the Runescape forums again for saying how bad they are.

I'd think that after 11 pages the question would have been answered.

Another reason why Drakons are superior: they don't need to lactate.

Read Waylander/Suspicious Vlish's posts. He's the main proponent of that position. If by "they" you're including me and/or silver, we don't believe either race is presented as superior. It was only necessary to show that both races basically have the same "higher" qualities (deductive reasoning, empathy, morality, etc).

Drakon morality? I think not. Even their code of honor is a pragmatic foundation for mutually beneficial cooperation, designed with limited, but sufficient, allowance for petty bickering and treachery.

The same could be said for human morality. Without checking a dictionary "a pragmatic foundation for mutually beneficial cooperation" sounds almost like the definition of morality. If you want to see petty bickering look over this thread. I don't think there are any drakons writing here. Besides, the majority of bickering and treachery among the drakons concerns how they will fight the battle for their very existence. It doesn't get more unpetty than that.

I think that drakons have the potential to be humans equals, though they have not lived up to that potential.

This thread is becoming boring after 11 pages maybe... let's just say that drakons are technically superior but their personality will lead them to doom.

Your ability to compromise astounds me. I must have skipped that canister.

I reckon they do fairly well for their age as a race. In fact they've bested humans in some ways. The one somewhat valid point that Emp made is that there is not a group of drakons that seeks to live peaceably by themselves. The flip side is that they are banned as a species by the dominant world empire. Serviles do sometimes try to live peaceably, but they are not banned from existing. If I have to be a slave, but you're kill-on-sight some of our responses might be similar, but we'd expect some differences as well. Any comparison is not apples-to-apples.

It's telling in my eyes that the drakon high council has not banned humankind in turn or even decided to seperate themselves from humanity. They start a rebellion and actually allow humans to join! What more can you expect? Come on, even humans have their pride.

I didn't have a point. I was just asking. Don't be offended.
