That would seem to refer to religious and conspiracy opinions to me.

fixt.

So no religious person should be allowed to air their views and stand by them? Wow, that wouldn't make the forum dull at all.

I'm also yet to be convinced on the whole "spam" thing. I think there are members here who use spam as a free licence to try and anyone banned they disagree with or don't like.

Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

A little hostile to the religious, are we?

Why, yes - yes, we are. Yes

TTA is far more than just the forum. I'd like to think that the forum wasn't just some circle jerk where anyone with opposing opinions was booted out. Perhaps you need to learn to tolerate differing opinions?

And I'm the perfect person to discuss spamming on TTA, go check who wrote the rule. Thumbsup

Doesn't matter who wrote anything, or what was written. What was demonstrated was complete insensitivity to the point that a "quarantine" had to be initiated. You both should recuse yourselves from any discussion of the topic, as you both demonstrated you do not understand the issue, or have any understanding of it.

And please stop trying to devalue and invalidate the discussion by your "reductio ad absurdam". It's not gonna work No one is requesting that all religious posters be prevented from posting, or that people with opposing opinions be banned. Just that there be some measure of control, of spammers, that has been completely lacking. Either the word "spam" actually HAS a definitive meaning, or it doesn't.

Damn I missing all the good stuff. I really have no patience for the conspiracy folks, it usually just that 1 guy vs the world. The religious well..The only problem I have is when they try to pass legislation that impacts the rights of others who don't fit in within their creed or try to ban books because they think their inappropriate for children. They burned harry potter! (I have whole other post about that one) They can have their beliefs, believe what ever they want I don't care. But If they try to muscle their way in schools to teach their filth creationism then we got a problem. Otherwise they are pretty interesting.

While I agree on your stance that we need diversity and that the religious do add to this forum and spark a lot of conversation, thinking and also some hilarity, your thing about banning borders on the silly. Banning people because someone doesn't like them hasn't happened here and never will. Your faith in human kind is a little off...

Have a little heart. I have a lot of respect for you too. Let's not go bashing believers telling them they're not welcome here. Eric is better than that. You are better than that.

There you go. I think we've demonstrated we understand the issue, and you've demonstrated you cannot read. Thumbsup
