I am definitely a citizen of the global atheist nation, so I shouldn't require a green card.

But I may require training wheels.Blush I've never used a forum outside of very backward Amazon ones, so I don't know any of the more advanced (aka normal) post and attachment formatting tools. I'm reading up on them, but may make some errors while learning. I humbly ask for your indulgence, corrections, and advice.

One thing I can't find in forum usage sites is an explanation of [COLLAPSED] as it appears to be use in this forum. I would be very grateful for a short summary of how to use it. Thanks in advance for any help. Big Grin

Edit to add: I think I found the answer to my question about collapsing, but I will test it in my own introduction thread to avoid further OT material here. Shy

If you need help with something, just ask. Lots of people around here are willing to help...or at least try to help. Thumbsup

Welcome to any refugees who I haven't bumped into yet. Smile

Amazon has forums?

Apparently so, and they seem to have a very adversarial relationship with members. I think we've got a dozen refugees from their atheist boards so far.

YAY! New perspectives!

And welcome, S. Friedman! I'm with Aliza, it's always nice to see how other people think and approach different issues.

EvolutionKills: "Apparently, Amazon has forums as well as a large assortment of cheap shit. Apparently in said forums is an Atheist section. Said Atheist section is run by power hungry theists who get offended by someone offering so much as slightly critical point of view or opinion regarding religion. On an Atheist forum... Said Nazi mods have been banning people left right and centre, good Atheist citizens, without actually giving much of a reason. When people are banned all presence of them on the forum is removed, so posts, threads, everything. So, seeing how green our grass is they've all exodus-ed over to us to avoid tyrannical theistical prosecution."

> I was banned for posting the following, which Amazon moderators believe violates the spirit of an atheist forum and violates their guidelines:

"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully." (Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion)

> Go figure! Dodgy

Go figure, indeed. Glad I never even heard of the place, before this. Crazy. If you say something silly here, it's left for posterity for people to poke fun at. Big Grin

Hello Aliza and others

I am another just joined Amazon emigre. This place seems an improvement.

There's very little we don't discuss here. There's even a sub-forum area that discusses everything sexual. Ya gotta be over 18 to enter......or is it 21, I can't remember.

Anyway, have fun!

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
