Your position demonstrates a lack of experience in the world.
I've lived in different cultures, so I hardly think you're well positioned to lecture me about my unworldly ways. I think dogged and inflexible might be the words you're looking for.
I'm committed to intensely disliking everyone that stand for positions I find abominable and harmful, regardless of how nicely behaved they are. If 'nice' goes long ways with you, awesome - but don't act like it's unworldly to refuse to be swayed by someone's charisma.
Look: I said Falwell came across as nice (just as this dean did) despite the fact that I disliked what he stood for and the things he did. My point was that the dean could be a nice guy on here and still lie about his school's stats.
I really feel like you are intentionally misunderstanding me.
You were originally saying that you would never be swayed by how nice someone was... which only matters in this discusioon if you think no one else would either. I think that is a rather unworldly view.
Never mind the fact that you seem to be defending the dean... which is somewhat at odds with your comment here.
I hope that clears things up for you.
