RE: Why do you forum post or blog?
For a slightly different perspective...

All forums I belong to serve different functions. A guitar forum I belong to is simply a place for me to learn and share info about the guitar. This forum allows me to learn about the counterarguments to theism.

Occasionally, I find a forum where there is a secondary benefit, such as friendship. I can't say this forum has offered that yet (too soon and I'm too shy) but one secondary benefit is that it helps me gain a better sense of the size, vibrancy and conviction of the atheist community. This gives me a strange sense of hope that my son (or his children, should he choose to have some) may yet grow to see a world where humans take full credit and responsibility for their choices, rather than co-opting a make believe fairytale.

"I don't mind being wrong...it's a time I get to learn something new..."
Me.
N.B: I routinely make edits to posts to correct grammar or spelling, or to restate a point more clearly. I only notify edits if they materially change meaning.

4 - I assume that you actually answered queries into your motivation for posting and positing your questions, while I have yet to be graced with an answer to mine.

5 - That being said, I asked my question and left it at that. I did not continue to badger him for not responding. As of yet, the only person to take note of my post, appears to be you.

I already sort of answered these questions in reply #5.

I had a moment where I wondered how I got into posting on forums in the first place, and I thought I'd ask folks the same question on other forums I've been to.

The general trend seems to be this: a person has a question they would like answered by a certain community, or they just want to find a community of like-minded people. They join up, and after a long while, they become sort of addicted to posting their thoughts.

I suppose the above describes me, pretty much. Plus, like I said before, at this point I like exploring ideas with people. But you can't always explore a subject if you're locked into one group of people who cannot think outside of the box.

One of my favorite replies was this:

Q: "Why do you post?"
A: "Because I lack the discipline not to."

Not a cool response.

Just saying.

It's a perfectly valid question given that the OP provided zero context. Drinking Beverage

RE: Why do you forum post or blog?
Because I want to find my one true love.

U_u'

Jokes aside, I am a social individual, I like interactions with people and I find the topics surrounding atheism and theism quite fascinating.
