Edited to say...never mind.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

How so? I think we function just fine. We may have disagreements, but that hardly keeps all of us apart.

Poorly stated on my part, Logica.

Just saying it ain't all rainbows and butterflies around here. yet, here we are.

There's no such thing as a perfect, peaceful family, Anjele. Smile

The community feel of sharing music, movies, accomplishments in life, jobs, asking for advice, the good-natured teasing, and the wildly diverse group of regulars interspersed with characters that show up now and then.

The varied focus here and community feel is a great selling point for sticking around. The scholarly stuff here is also great, I know I have learned a ton since being here. So we have a little bit of everything and it is not just 1 type of poster.

RE: What makes TTA different?
Spent a week on the Dawkins forum a year ago... The mods where a bit overzealous, the whole place felt kinda sanitized like the point was more about making a statement to Theists and outsiders and less about community...Thus the people who remained tended to be pretentious feminine hygiene product containers....Too dry, too PC, too academic.

The only forum I ever really frequented otherwise was talkbass and that forum was huge and while it was super active and cool in that sense, you couldn't talk religion or politics, at all, anywhere, and since it was a bass forum there where no women. Mostly it was just threads about girls, beer and ragging on guitarists 24/7....and the long time forum celebrities pretty much dominated the conversation (not that they weren't entertaining).

TTA is small enough to be heard, big enough to be active and loose enough to be interesting.

RE: What makes TTA different?
I spent some time at whywontgodhealamputees forum and it was ok but just a bit too serious for my taste. People here are smart but not snobby.

People here don't seem to hold a grudge for any length of time either. This makes for a more inclusive place and lively conversation. Also there are a nice variety of topics. The fact that I spend waaaaay too much time here than I ever intended to reflects that this forum is wildly magnetic.
