Atheist and an Antigay.
I'm not. :1 But do you know any atheist anti-gays? FTR: that does not mean they are secretly gay, that's stupid.

Never heard of one, possible yes, likely no. We are not bound to middle age bigotry like religious people are so we are more accepting and supportive of people and how they want to live.

RE: Atheist and an Antigay.
But that statement is a High and Mighty fallacy. Unless, I guess, you're talking about religion as a middle age bigotry. But the antigay may have scientific reasons. Let's keep an open mind here.

I said it was possible, but most anti gay attitudes stem from religion.

RE: Atheist and an Antigay.
Is that what you say about everybody with opposite views than yours? Quite dry honestly. But no, I'm not a "troll" whatever that means (may be a gay term, but who knows, no "hate") I legit wanna get information. I don't wanna troll anybody. I just want people to list some " homo"phobes they may know who were atheist. That's it.

Hmmm, yeah, ahhhhh.......

We say it a lot about newbies who come in looking for a fight then plead ignorance. CLASSIC troll behavior.


14 Characteristics of a Classic Internet Troll

What exactly is an internet troll? How can you spot one with any degree of certainty? Aren't they just people who express a contrary opinion? Who are you to call anyone a "troll"?

To answer such questions, and to help you detect the presence of that peculiar species of creature called the internet troll, no matter where they may be slithering, here's a list of Key Troll Attributes commonly found in the wild. When you see someone engaged in any, or a combination of, these behaviors, they are almost certainly the entity known as the troll.

(1) Posts inflammatory comments, not to engage in serious conversation, but to "grief" or annoy an online community.

(2) An obvious glee and elated satisfaction is aroused in them when people join the fight and reply to their deliberately disruptive comments.

(3) Copies and pastes large blocks of text to exhaust the readers of a topic thread, thus driving away legitimate posters of sincere comments. These blocks of text are often recycled and appeared on a variety of threads.

(4) Tends to avoid complimenting people who disagree with them, even when those in opposition to the troll make some valid points.

(5) Shuns any conciliatory statements like "You have obviously spent a lot of time studying this subject, and I'm not certain how to reply to your last remark, so let's shake hands, part as friends, and move on."

(6) Never ends a debate with "Thanks for the discussion" or "I'll consider what you say" or any other finalizing remark, because they love arguing and disrupting civilized conversations.

(7) Keeps an argument going a lot longer than a normal person would, to the point where people will start asking a moderator to turn off comments or block the troll. However, sometimes people will do this just because they can't tolerate contrary opinions and are angry at seeing them posted to a thread they enjoyed reading. The mark of a troll is to keep hammering away at a point in an obsessive manner.

(8) Acts innocent when called a troll, and states "I'm just stating a contrary opinion, and you can't handle it", but the reality is they are not innocent, they are trouble-makers who only post inflammatory remarks, rarely contributing any real value or good information to a discussion.

(9) Starts saying filthy words and making wild accusations when confronted. Their hostility and provoking rhetoric escalates when you ask them if they might be a troll or if they are simply trying to stir up trouble.

(10) When you mention the name of another well-known forum, Second Life, or blogospheric troll, they defend them and accuse you of not understanding that person because you're a tyrannical censoring fascist or whatever.

(11) Will try to bring up issues that they are angry about, no matter what the topic of a thread is. For example, they will say things like "sounds like the Open Source movement" or "reminds me of Tea Baggers" or "you're sounding like a typical commie libtard now" or "you sound like some irrational Creationism crank" or "you atheists are all the same", or whatever it is they're hostile toward, in an attempt to start a new argument within the current debate.

(12) When people realize or are warned that the person is a troll, and the troll is then ignored, and nobody will respond to anything they say, the trolling person tends to give up and go to some other thread. They crave attention and they try to get it by being obnoxious in a juvenile, or scholarly, manner.

(13) They use a nickname, are anonymous, or use a real sounding name, but do not embed a link to their blog or website in their name, as is common in comment forms. This lack of accountability enables them to get away with saying anything they want, to anybody, and even tell outright lies about what they saw or heard.

(14) They, when not confronted or exposed sufficiently, will seek to have the last word in an online discussion. When nobody responds to their last troll comment, they will proudly proclaim that they "won" what they fantasize as a "content" or "battle".

Blogocombat means friendly online discussions, as well as heated debates. I use the term "blogocombat" to refer to both. But where the rubber meets the road is when you have to deal with the internet troll.

There are no winners or losers in a civilized discussion. There are just people who express their thoughts and people who learn a bit more about a subject and improve their presentation of ideas by engaging in conversations with worthy opponents.

"Trolling" has nothing to do with sincere expression of contrary opinions or stubborn dedication to an idea. Trolling is all in how the comments are phrased and how the comment poster behaves, especially when confronted.

You know it's an immature attention-getting scheme when they respond quickly to every single comment posted in response to theirs, and their rhetoric tends to escalate in intense hatred, absurd rambling, and malicious provocation.

RE: Atheist and an Antigay.
That I won't deny. But Atheists can be part of a religion. Like Buddhism. China, for example, are the world's biggest atheist population. And they're against it.

RE: Atheist and an Antigay.
None of that made any sense. I guess just because you're an atheist, it doesn't mean you can think very far when it comes to other logical ideas. (like determining what a troll is)

RE: Atheist and an Antigay.
Banjo, First off, I don't know how any of the listed assumptions make a person a troll, except maybe the last few. And I'm not doing those. Second, if I didn't get into a serious discussion I wouldn't be posting controversial yet serious topics. Next, a troll copies and pastes text to exhaust people? Isn't that what you did? Next, you say "they use a nickname" and they don't post a link to their website. I don't have a website. And I don't have a nickname as my profile name. And if you say "they use a real SOUNDING name", that's an idiotic contradiction to me having a nick name. What exactly constitutes as a nickname? That is my real name. You have the nick name. All of those listed assumptions, apply to you.
