As pleased as I am to be on the list of "good people," lists like this
make one look unnecessarily dogmatic. Frankly, this reminds me of the
Brunching Shuttlecocks feature that shows up every once in a while,
"Good or Bad." "It's realatively straightforward. It's basically a
poll, except first off it dispenses with all this irksome relativity
and second off it's infallibly correct."

To make yourself look a little better, you might try listing a quick
reason next to each name, you know: "Evil -- den Otter: Says he'll
take any means necessary to be the first and only immortal." (Did he
say he'd kill for it? I can't remember.) "Eugene Leitel: Says he'd
try to kill AI researchers because he thinks that their work is
dangerous." Stuff like that.
