I know of three people who seem to claim to be or give evidence of being true 
pacifists: Phil Enns, Austin Meredith, and Mike Geary.  Irene seems to be a 
part-time pacifist.

As far as I know there are no true pacifists on this list. To be generally
opposed to war as a solution to human problems that arguably could be 
solved by
other means is not pacifism, and to believe that it isn't logically impossible
that human beings should live in a state of peace is not pacifism. You're
challenging a deaf horse, I think.
