Welcome to the forum.

Not all of us curse like a sailor but it's hardly uncommon. My feeling is that if you use it too frequently then it loses impact when you really mean it.

Hey there, welcome Smile

It's been my experience that people generally get as good as they give here.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Welcome! You spell your name exactly like my wife so I already like you.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

RE: New to this site...
Hi again, all.

I was in a miserable mood when I first posted and failed to make myself as clear as I usually try to do.

First, thanks for the welcome. This site already seems different from most I have tried in the past couple of years.

Second, thanks for the links and suggestions.

And...third, the "tired of vulgar language and insults" meant those aimed directly at me for my Conservative viewpoints...at me and at others like me in general and aimed solely for the Conservative viewpoints.

It just seems petty and childish to result to those tactics when someone suddenly diverges from what some atheists believe should be "atheist thinking" and it gets old after a while. I thought we rose above the "shut up and sit down" that used to be shouted at us.

I considered never posting in any current event or political forums, but it sort of creeps into most aspects of discussion one way or another.

Ah well..

Emma, I will check out that topic. Thanks.

Jeanne is, of course, the French spelling, but I get all sorts of pronunciations.

Glad there are a few other Conservative-types here.

I don't offend easily, so let loose; the vulgar language is probably something I taught my kids...or maybe I will learn some new phrases that will stun them into silence.

Again, thanks for the thoroughly pleasant welcome.

-Jeanne

Hi Jeanne, good to have you here. We're a global forum so ... no doubt you'll encounter a variety of perspectives.
