You received several warnings and ignored them.

I suggest you learn from your experience.

No, I didn't receive any warnings, formally or informally.
I read the entire thread. Yes, you did receive warnings, you simply ignored them. And sending private messages to that arsehole 'noreligion' was asking for trouble in any case.

RE: I've just been banned
I have to ask,

What christian/religious forums have you been on asking the same questions and how were you received?

Just out of curiosity, what exactly did you send to NoReligion?



Me too Void, I was chookrooter. (Yes, my bad, the name was taking the piss out of the Americans,who I was pretty sure wouldn't get it; they didn't)

I finally left when one of their moderators (Flat Earth, I think) called me a cunt once too often.

However, to be fair, that mob are the acme of reason and civility compared with Raving Atheist, whose members can be more properly described as inmates.

Welcome, I hope you have a very pleasant stay Smile

RE: I've just been banned
Frankly, if you PM'ed someone who turned out to be a raving asshole and asked you not to do it again, why would you do it again? If it were me I'd simply apologize and forget them. The mod told you not to do it again, and yet you did. Ignoring mods is one easy way to get banned from forums.

And I, too, am a bit skeptical about this whole "essay" thing. It's not like you're shooting a documentary like "Religulous." The questions you're asking are just way too simple and broad to get any use out of. I don't think you're a troll, though, you just appear to not being used to having good interviewing skills.
Christian apologetics is the art of rolling a dog turd in sugar and selling it as a donut.

That's fair. I shouldn't be considered a troll just because of the way I ask my questions. That's just the way I've always been. I know it comes off as blunt and maybe abrupt but it's what I'm used to. I can imagine it being annoying but I don't really know any other way. Sometimes I'm not even aware of it.

Humour? Only with a certain generosity of spirit, and only in America.

A personal opinion: I think Bill Maher is a twerp, as funny as cancer,but probably a little more ethical than Michael Moore.

RE: I've just been banned
It had some marginally humorous moments (the interpretation of the text message received/sent by the hat wearing islamic man) as I recall. Otherwise it's mostly a boring movie Confused
