For real? These things exist? You would be a statistical anomaly if you followed your own rules and don’t ban people for whatever personal reason.
I mean I’d like to believe and I believe by default so I will try to take this site on the internet more seriously.

Welcome.

We abide by our rules.

Bans happen for various reasons, never for personal reasons, however some of us may dislike an individual.

Also, if you've come here with a combative attitude, "spiritually dead" -really? - you can expect responses in kind.

Also, none of the staff are allowed to act arbitrarily unless the rules are broken seriously, repeatedly, or board functionality is disrupted.

Aha! I knew it. The BOSS does not like the words I’ve said.
All right, I am going to do some observing in the mean time and open a topic and see where it goes. It will most likely end in a ban. Smile

Well..that suggests that you may want to find some other board where you can say whatever clearly fucked up things you intend to say, doesn't it?

If...for no other reason...than that you shouldn't have to type those things twice.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

I have been on the internet too and that's not my experience. The internet can be polarized but it's not that polarized. I have been to plenty of theist forums and never had an issue and have booted in seconds from atheist forums.

RE: New Theist
Thanks for your post Valkyrie. That’s exactly what I want to challenge, spirituality and the fact that some of you may be oblivious that you’re exactly like a religious systems.
Personally I can take ANY insult thrown at me and I don’t mind. The question is: can others do that? Also if I report the potential future insults at me, will you really look into them and do something about it? Will you really? Smile

I have also updated my avatar picture. It’s Saint George. I know that avatars are important to make sweeping generalizations on people. Smile

This brings up several topics which I’ll add for later such as

1. The meaning of words
2. The limits of words
3. Rule contradictions
4. Bias.

RE: New Theist
Start a thread man. You can insult people here no problem. If you want a thread free from insults (and that means YOU can't insult people either) then you can tag the thread "serious."

But I don't recommend that if you're looking for candid discussion. The "serious" tag is best reserved for sensitive topics or topics you want to treat with academic rigor.

Thank for clearing that. It makes perfect sense and I know exactly what you’re talking about.

Guys, I will remind everyone - EVERYONE - about the rules for the introduction thread.

It"s for getting to know a person, so let's keep it polite, please.

Any further discussions, whatever the subject, can be taken to other threads, where you can have a free-for-all.
