Wizard...calm down, bud!

I am sorry I struck such a nerve.

Just three things:

1. The Golden Rule has been around for about 2,000 years. It says, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." To, me, it is a fundamental precept to follow (though I often fail), and it is the bedrock for what would be courteous in a given situation. I think it guides well what our attitudes and actions ought to be toward couples (or individuals) who would appreciate a few minutes of alone time in the circumstances described.

2. The notion of "reasonableness" has also been around a long time. You used it in your last post yourself. It is a very useful concept, both in law and morality, to help guide behavior in contexts where fixed lines would be impossible or impracticable to draw [as in "five" minutes versus "ten", or "three" hours versus "four"]

3. The simple courtesy and etiquette toward couples which I am talking about may well be unacceptable to you, but it is certainly a matter of common graciousness and standard paractice for other hotsprings users outside this forum, including male ones. See, for example, the posts in the last two days by Yakshak2002 and Anir Dendroica, at http://www.soakersforum.com/3/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=1678&p=14964#p14964 . Both those men stated an attitude of basic courtesy, toward couples desiring alone time, which far exceeded the virtually negligible degree of courtesy I have been propounding here.

In any event, there is no real reason for you, or me, to keep getting huffy over this disagreement. We have to realize we are mostly just talking to ourselves and a relatively narrow spectrum of guys. And even though I think I am right in all of this, you can feel good knowing that the tenor of the responses seems mostly behind you.

So can we close off now?
