Mellowguy, As much as you have tried and tried to " imply " that the position on this subject you are taking is just about ill mannered single males, once again your most recent comments re-inforces what I have said is also part of what you are suggesting, even though you are trying to be more subtle about this particular position but its there none the less. Like this for example, " you're right that I would give a couple the courtesy of some time alone ". In this statement you are clearly seeing yourself as a courteous person, and in keeping with " your own standards " of common courtesy you would leave a romantic couple alone in a pool if you had some indication that they were seeking such time. Also this statement has the subtle implication that it would be ill mannered in your view for a " reasonably courteous " person not to remove themselves from the hotpool. Even though you try and minimize what this act would entail by citing a time parameter like " a few minutes ", the implied intent of what you are trying to impart remains the same. You write of lengths of time soaked as somehow being another parameter that could be used to help justify this idea of yours.

Referencing Paul in this you write, " You don't seem like the kind of guy who would refuse to extend the small amount of courtesy that I am talking about ". Once again you suggest by your words that you feel Paul is a well mannered person, and therefore, you don't think he would deny a romantic couple the time they desired in the hotpool setting you describe. These statements have nothing to do with dealing with un-courteous people. In your mind it would be wrong ( however mildly so you may see it ) for even a well mannered person not to leave a hotpool that a romantic couple wished to have for themselves.

So if I'm soaking in the Womb, and the romantic couple just wants a few minutes privacy, and I've already soaked for a couple of hours, I'm an ill mannered dude not to leave the pool. You words say clearly this is what you think. It would not matter if I was a reasonably courteous person, in this case you would consider my actions wrong! Well everyone has a point of view on the myriad subjects of human interaction, and I don't agree with this particular notion ( of yours ) of what is non-courteous behavior regarding romantic couples in natural public hotspring pools.

Most folks travel long distances to get to DCHS, set aside significant amounts of time to make the whole trip, put forth the energy to hike 1000 feet in elevation to a remote canyon to soak in realistically four relatively small hotpools at DCHS. It doesn't matter if they just happen to get there on an occasion where there is just a few visitors and one amorous couple wanting a hotpool to themselves. All visitors should be able to soak in whatever pool they want, for as long as they want. This said, of course I would still expect this person or person's to still behave reasonably ( I of course would be judging this by my own set of standards ) and treat others with respect.
