Trolling rule update
#21
RE: Trolling rule update
We aren't going to issue warnings off the bat. We will first have a private word with a member and explain why we removed part of their signature. If they decide to put it back, or decide to violate the rule with some other quote, then we'll start issuing warnings.

We aren't going to discuss individual signatures in this thread either. If you have a question about your signature, or about any of the rules, feel free to make a thread in the "Questions for Staff" forum where only staff and yourself can see your thread: http://atheistforums.org/forum-80.html

I'm fine with keeping it as it is, mine aren't there to make people look stupid.  They're viewpoints that I don't agree with but as far as I know nobody has changed their mind about what they said.

Why don't you PM the individuals and ask them? They are out of context.
I don't have an anger problem, I have an idiot problem

Agreed. What I gave was just my opinion, and should not be taken as a policy statement.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

ok thanks.


Are you ready for the fire? We are firemen. WE ARE FIREMEN! The heat doesn’t bother us. We live in the heat. We train in the heat. It tells us that we’re ready, we’re at home, we’re where we’re supposed to be. Flames don’t intimidate us. What do we do? We control the flame. We control them. We move the flames where we want to. And then we extinguish them.

Impersonation is treason.

I am NOT changing my signature. Isaac Asimov can suck it. Stupid sideburns and all.

If he reports it, you may have to.

If you have such things in your signature, we are giving a week for offenders to clean up their signature before we start enforcement.

So what you're saying is that I can harass all of the members I want for the next 168 hours, as long as I do so in my signature?

That's for current offenders. Dog help your soul if you do it now.

If he reports me, I'll run shrieking into the night, so I will.

RE: Trolling rule update
There was a new member a few months ago who put my avatar pic in his signature with worms coming out of my head. I thought it was pretty hilarious to be honest lol. Too bad he is no longer around.
"Of course, everyone will claim they respect someone who tries to speak the truth, but in reality, this is a rare quality. Most respect those who speak truths they agree with, and their respect for the speaking only extends as far as their realm of personal agreement. It is less common, almost to the point of becoming a saintly virtue, that someone truly respects and loves the truth seeker, even when their conclusions differ wildly."

And Marilyn Monroe can fuck off if she reports me for quoting her out of context. Not only is she a melodramatic drama queen "Oh look at me, there's a fan underneath my skirt and it's blowing it upwards. You can sort of almost see my panties. Oopsie." but she probably also never even said that.
