We would have a better chance of retaining theists if people didn't pile on them and be dicks to them simply because they're theists.

Because he wasn't a troll.

Wikipedia Wrote:In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by trying to start arguments and upset people. They may do this by posting deliberately inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

...

Application of the term troll is subjective. Some readers may characterize a post as trolling, while others may regard the same post as a legitimate contribution to the discussion, even if controversial. Like any pejorative term, it can be used as an ad hominem attack, suggesting a negative motivation.

Regardless of the circumstances, controversial posts may attract a particularly strong response from those unfamiliar with the robust dialogue found in some online, rather than physical, communities. Experienced participants in online forums know that the most effective way to discourage a troll is usually to ignore it[citation needed], because responding tends to encourage trolls to continue disruptive posts – hence the often-seen warning: "Please do not feed the trolls".


To some, Ego® was a troll.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

We can recognize dickhead theists pretty accurately. Piling on does not make them go away.

No one piled up on Mojch.

As for the others, IMO, we piled on them because THEY were dicks who happened to be theists.

RE: What do you most dislike about TTA forums? (Bitch Session)
Lol how many people who aren't dick heads go to the Bizzaro world equivalent of their home forum and start spouting off? None. Asking questions, trying to learn something sure...but answering the same questions and playing apologist?

...If I went to a creationist forum and started playing a game of pin-the-tail-on-the-logical-fallacy, it would make me kind of a dick....but then again that is what the Internetz is for.

hehehehehehehehehe ... Big Grin

We did. Didn't take. Like water off a duck's back. ... Reminded me of when my kids try to wrestle me, "I can't get a grip on his fatness!" ... hehehehehehe

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

I've seen enough non-dickhead theists attacked on here for the sole crime of being a theist to stand by my original comment.

It's my most disliked thing about the forum, along with some people's inability to not read threads that they don't like.

Some come here and pretty much ask for it.

Others just come here to preach and try to collect brownies from their gods.

And then there are those who may have come here because they have a nagging doubt... and I don't like seeing those driven off. But they always are, and it just drives them back into the arms of the church. And that's a shame.
