Ah, Lord Quill, do you not recall what your parents taught you? Well,
I'm assuming they did, because my parents taught it to me: "Birds of a
feather flock together."
I know nothing of Goliards, Miscreants, or anything else of the sort.
What I do know is that we *choose* with whom we will associate. Such
choices reveal something about each person's character. Because I also
know that if you do not sit down with "tax collectors and sinners," you
cannot have any influence on them, I will not dismiss someone out of
hand for mere associations. However, when you choose to associate with
someone, you ARE revealing something about yourself in making that
choice; thus, it only makes sense that your choice in association should
redound upon you in some fashion.
I speak in general because, again, I know absolutely nothing about
Goliards and Miscreants. Do not regret that *you* are colored by the
associations you *choose* to make; instead, choose your associations so
that their reflection upon you will be the impression you want others to
have of you. That choice is yours.
