Would you respond to vague questions about Jesus?
If I post a bunch of threads with vague questions that imply atheists are ignorant, or that historical Jesus has as much evidence as other historical figures, would you believe I'm not trolling for Jesus if I claimed not to be?

Well, your avatar picture would be kind of a give-away. It also helps if you expose a teeny bit of your anatomy (to hold our attention, as it were)

I believe everything you say. Without question.

Honestly, back when I was Christian, if I were brave enough to post on atheist forums, I would have probably come off similarly. It wouldn't have been born out of an intent to troll, but rather out of viewing things only from one side. I used to believe a lot of things that were really offensive to non-Christians, and I just didn't see that.

Obviously, this doesn't mean the SJ isn't trolling, but I'm saying it doesn't mean she is either. A better indication will be how she responds to the responses, and what (if anything) she posts in threads she didn't start.

Does it matter?

Polite questions deserve polite responses.

DLJ is correct. Good questions receive thought out, pleasant responses.

Silly questions get to be used as target practice.

A veneer of "politeless" on a troll is lipstick on a warthog.

5 months here and you haven't learned a thing. No Your approach not only doesn't work on the trolls, but "proves" atheists are the assholes many theists believe for the ones who come here looking for honest discussion. Not to mention others - theists or atheists - who just stop by to peruse and never join or post - maybe even because of you. I honestly believe your approach does far more harm than good (if it does any good at all). But you call THEM a turd. Drinking Beverage
