I feel as though I've missed something. *goes to figure this out*

My reason for being is to serve as a cat cushion. That is good enough for me. Wink

RE: THANK YOU!
Gassy is calling me a hypocrite? I like the random posts about different news, but don't tend to comment I have very little time. The times I do make horribly aggressive statements it is because this is the place that that is ok. when I'm really mad about this topic it's better to say something cruel here where people aren't going to care than to say it in the bus where I would be kicked off.

I'm sure she'll be back. This is most likely a joke, a hack, or a strange outburst. If she's not we'll all miss her.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

Seeing GK leave would be too bad. It is only in the last weeks that I start to understand her. When I first "met" her, i was new to this forum and judging from this post I thought she was some kind of fundamentalist patriot. Now I understand that she is just someone who is very passionate and emotional.

GassyKitten: Come back, we'll talk abut it. Misunderstandings are frequent and to be expected. It's just a forum goatdammit.

I'm just speaking as someone who's been in serious metaphysical funks before throwing lifelines in all directions to see what might catch.

RE: THANK YOU!
Honestly, I dont like to be called a hypocrite. I read those threads of yours but the reasons why I didn't reply any of your mentioned threads are quite simple;

1.- I dont have enought time to be around here like 24/7 and replying to every new thread, and to be honest I would be glad to have more free time, but that is not possible to me because of my job, if you check on my profile, you can see I dont have too many threads or replies, there are newer members who already have more posts than I have.

2.- I want to be honest about this; sometimes, not only in the threads you mentioned but many other threads, I dont have anything to say; sometimes because I'm uninformed about certain topics, in other words, sometimes I have nothing useful to say relating certain topics.

3.- I dont think its because I only like to bash theists and things like that, I'm willing to discuss casual topics when I have the time to do so, I've posted certain funny random atheism-unrelated topics like this.

Regarding TrainWreck, well this is the internet, we can find any type of person in the vastness of cyberspace. And believe me, TrainWreck is not the first nor will be the last self proclaimed atheist who likes to be arrogant and antagonistic, I have met several persons like him on spanish atheist chatrooms and forums.

If I dont agree with someone I have the right to disagree and point out when something is offensive to me, it does not matter if is a deist, theist, atheist, capitalist, comunist, socialist, etc., the thing with him is his arrongance, I think we could have a nice debate with him if he was not an arrogant person, we could point out what we think is wrong with their views in a civilized manner.

Honestly I WANT to believe that your account got hacked, because as far as I can see, you have been polite to everybody including me, and I think I have been polite to you. If this is not a joke or a hackinig issue, honestly I can say that this will be somewhat dumb to be angry about an internet forum, I'm also very passionate when I defend my opinions, but at the same time, I realize that THIS IS THE INTERNET! Dont take so seriously the freaking internet.

I hope you reconsider this, fo real.

Peace.

RE: THANK YOU!
Well I haven't been able to post here for a while due to examns and stuff (not that my posts are that awesome or anything), which is something you in the first place should consider. We all have a life outside of this forum and not everyone has the time to constantly check this site.

The only thing i can see when i read your text is pure frustration. You've always been an extremely active user, so I think this forum became an important part of your life. So it's understandable that when you don't get any feedback on some topics you are eager to discuss, that it causes frustration. Letting it out in the place where you get it from is only natural.

Still though, it's June, every student's busiest months. Give us a few days to get back here, post a new thread and we'll discuss it like nothing ever happened. Maybe DeepThought can even delete this thread, if you want to that is.

Hope to see you back soon!

I was actually curious about if her account got hacked. When I saw her signature change to a flashy graphic. And it linked to: http://www.gerv.net/hacking/why-hacking-for-christ.html

I wasn't 100% sure.. If her account really did get hacked I suppose the real gassy would have contacted one of us under a different account and I could rectify it somehow.

Either way - that statement embedded in the image is ridiculous. It doesn't seem rational at all. I noticed Gassy can generate allot of threads - EDIT: some of the topics didn't interest me or seem relevant to me. To each their own.. Everyone has different interests. I guess the person behind GK can make that mean whatever they like.

TrainWreck alienated himself and it was his own doing - mostly had nothing to do with his views and more to do with how he expresses himself. Anyone seeing objectively would know that?

GK - is this you? I just don't recognize a rational mind behind those words...
I decided to host the image on this webserver - just in case..

RE: THANK YOU!
Hey Tim,
Deleting threads is just something we don't do here. At least not with a REALLY good reason, and other than bots I haven't heard one yet. The reason I bring it up is that although many of us don't agree with GKs reasoning, I do think she brought up a valid topic for discussion, and I couldn't justify deleting it.

GK,
Miss you hon. C'mon back. Try to remember that often the threads you post speak for themselves, and lots of people just don't post without having something to add. And if you doubted the fact that we don't stand behind someone that doesn't share the majority view, just have a look through this very thread. Pretty much everyone disagrees with you, and we all still want you back!

EDIT to add: If this is some sort of hack GK, register with a new account, PM me and DT, and we'll get it squared away.

So many cats, so few good recipes.
