Pardon me, but in my case it was (if I may borrow a phrase from Wodehouse) vulgar abuse... apparently what I'm best at.

Some people are born great (at vulgar abuse), some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them... by being forced to translate the mental effluvia of some of the world's greatest non-thinkers. Trust me, there ain't enough pearls in the world for one to clutch at, if one ever comes across what I hurl at my authors when struggling with them... [Image: frust.gif]

What else you can expect from troll?

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Nothing like a few casual patronizing condescending insults to make new friends, huh.





Please teach us dear leader. We have been waiting for a savior such as you to train us in the ways of thought for such a long time now. MAKE TTA GREAT AGAIN!

Is it still a circle jerk when it happens on an appointed morning once every week, and you give a percentage of your income to the circle jerk ring leader who may or may not also be raping your kids? Consider

So you don't think there is a risk of idea's being pushed out not because they are bad but because they challenge the accepted narrative? And why is that comment patronizing? If I had said "This board is a back clapping circle jerk" that would have been patronizing. What I said is I think its important for that not to happen, not that I thought it had happened or was happening. Read the quote I gave at the end then reread the original post as if you had written it.

Who says atheists can't have their own social groups, where we find mutual support? You dismiss such things as harmful, but do you even consider how they are helpful? And why do you, as a newbie, even think you should be able to change a well-established forum? Are you some sort of psychologist or psychiatrist?

You can suggest your own ideas, certainly, but you can't dictate terms. You can't even dictate how we should see you and your "helpful" interventions.

I suggest you focus on specifics rather than generalities, since generalities have already gotten you in trouble.

RE: You should apologize
You know what most people do when they join a new social circle? They hold back a little and listen more then they speak (or read more than they type) until they've got a feel for the tenor of the group. The ones who make broad assumptions about the group as a whole and jump in head first with arms flailing never end up doing as well as they projected in their own heads.

That's just more mental mastubation. Once you've been shown that you're wrong about a position you hold, it's time to reflect, not double down on your same nonsense.
