I doubt you'll find either, here on Venganza. At least, they rarely stay long.

I think that you'll find quite a lot of those here.

Sometimes, perhaps. But if you don't aim high, I suspect you'll never get enough
This place has people who are more than capable of intelligent discourse and certainly don't keep agreeing to keep the peace. Just look at the DB/Qwerty controversies!
Even when there is deep disagreement, the arguments are all about content and interpretation, not insults and tone. Each party feels, no, knows
, that their own arguments are at least being read and considered, even if they aren't accepted or agreed with.
I like the way everyone backs up their arguments with references and personal experience.
Life is complex and different for each one of us, but even though no-one here has all
the same experiences, many of us share some
. There is a lot of empathy and understanding. I think that I would trust this lot to help me when I need help, and to tell me when I am in the wrong. You included, of course.
