So would you be OK if all the humanoids had their alignment changed to "unaligned" but the non-humanoid monstrous beings like, say, a gibbering mouther still had their alignment listed? Not OK as in "I like this and will use it!" but OK as in "Well I still find alignment less than useful but at least it's an acceptable compromise?"Sure, it's not clear cut, though at the point the notion of killing babies is seriously entertained the line has been crossed a long time ago, regardless of where exactly it was (and I don't even like babies!) And also, yeah, I doubt our views differ much in practice. And removing the alignment from humanoids would definitely be a big step in the right direction; it would solve the most obvious issues that have unfortunate real world implications, and that's most important. I still think alignment is a terrible system on its own right and should go for that reason, but that's just about game design preferences, and ultimately not a big deal.
