I return after a few years. I feel like staying, though I'm a little worried about how everyone is hostile and dismissive now, and people who don't fall in line get shouted off any thread.
Maybe I just need to find some of the people who were around back when I first signed up? :L

Welcome back! I wasn't a member here back then, but one can find that type of thing on any forum. Just walk to the beat of your own drum -- can't please everyone and there's no sense in trying. :-) Besides, differences of opinions make life interesting.

Look forward to your posts! Heart

Be true to yourself. Heart

I think its just been the onslaught of loonier and loonier trolls as of late.

as always, theists are welcome, but they have to be prepared to have their ideas challenged. Most are not prepared for that, loads of drive by 'you're going to hell'. It gets old and when it happens more frequently, people are less and less tolerant.

I would suggest that maybe others need to take a break from the trolls, but that would probably go over like a lead balloon. Some come here just to feast on them.

eh, whatever floats your boat.

Tell me about it. Dodgy

I refer to such jackasses as the 'Crusaders' informally, because they crusade to drive off anyone who dares not think exactly like they do.

Welcome back though. Smile

Returning members can post intros, hell anyone can if they want to. Smile

That was an introduction? Sounded more like an editorial.
