@Anonymous Coward:Reasonable, except even by defecting you haven't gained the substantially greater payoff that is the whole point of Prisoner's Dilemma.

Hesitated because I always felt like I didn't have anything sufficiently wonderful or thought-provoking to say. But I can't help it now: brilliant! Waiting for the rest!
