Pacifist- Pacifist, which stays true to his name, does not actually engage in combat and prefers to stay away from it at all costs. If pacifist ever happens to engage in conflict (this is rare), it will not be directly. It's not that pacifist is cowardly, its that he often finds fighting to be useless over the internet.
Pacifist is often confused with sycophant, but he differs from sycophant in that he does not try to suck up to anyone.
Derailer - Derailer delights himself in switching the tracks of the original discussion. Whether or not he actually hijacks threads on purpose, he can earn the contempt of the forum very quickly.
In some ways, derailer can be helpful, such as when a thread is going down in flames; he can bring in a diversionary topic, and save the thread. However, this works rarely.
It is usually too late to save a thread when derailer commences havoc, the train of the discussion will unforunately go barreling off of a cliff in those few seconds. Derailer is often employed by the rebel leader in the first stage of revolution to create chaos in the forum. His most often used weapon is the grenade

I've known many derailers, and I'd say you summed them up nicely. Pacifists seem more like Diplomats that don't get involved... since they don't actually fight, they aren't really warriors. _________________
