For me, the biggest factor is whether or not they are sincere in their position. Also, whether or not they are on topic.

I agree with both those points too although I think being sincere can on occasion be a cop out, many dictators and war criminals believed totally sincerely.

Agree. Sincerity doesn't necessarily mean that someone is 'good'.

I sometimes have passionate arguments with myself that almost come to blows.

You want to come off as though you know more about how this forum works than people who have been here for years and the forum team.

Fresh eyes often do bring new ways to look at things. I don't think that's the group where you fall.

OK. I am seeing stars from you clubbing me over the head. I am really sorry that you see me that way.

Look at your rep and how many members have reversed their original opinion of you. I'm not the only one who doubts your sincerity as a member of this forum.

See here they are, the bruises, some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. -JF

If you want some REAL fun and games, check out this theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php forum! Guaranteed hysterics... better than Monty Python and The Goons combined LOL.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Yep, and I am a member in good standing of the Illuminati. My roots trace all the way back to Brian Cohen.

I think he's sincere. A sincere batshit bonkers Jew who wants to go all Thoreau and build a remote cabin in the middle of the Montana tundra using only hand tools where he will then proceed to write his manifesto. I don't find him insincere in that regard. A bit too ambitious methinks, but to each batshit bonkers his own.
