Laws and gods only exist, because humans are selfish enough to not understand basic empathy.

have you prayed lately?

Key phrase being 'out of context' in which quoting accurately is already a rule. Personally I've never quoted someone out of context in my Sig, I've quoted someone that contradicted themselves, and I've quoted someone that made a patently false statement. All sorts of ad hominem attacks are allowed, but putting someones quote in your sig is all of a sudden a bridge too far.

Do you believe its fair to parade someone's quote on a sig from a topic unrelated all over. If I had the stupidity to go look, I could find something you posted that is bad. But then I have the mental fortitude to adress people on topic, if I wish.

This is the crux. This rule serves theistic, atheistic and all betwixt.

So yeah, we are not going to warn you for quoting Jesus.

Did Jesus say anything worth quoting? 

Wait, allegedly said, allegedly.

I have no problem with the rule, my point was there is already precedent set for banning signatures that quote other members. Making it a rule now implies that there was no basis for the aforementioned action.

If that's your only point it's like beating a dead horse. Move along.

No, it's a valid point.

RE: Trolling rule update
Huggy...it wasn't a rule before because it wasn't a big enough problem to warrant a rule. You were just being an ass, so the staff stepped in. Now, it's apparently become a big enough problem that it does warrant a rule, so one was put in place. You aren't the victim of a staff conspiracy, relax.

Sometimes it's necessary to have to spell it out. It's why we have warnings on, I don't know, razor blades saying "caution - sharp edges"... you just know that someone, somewhere, tried to have sex with them.
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.'

Aw damn. They said they needed a surgical procedure to remove that mullet? Sorry, bruh.

I told you, no matter how much mullet you grow, it will never turn into a man bun.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

I got it hacked off bruh, posted pictures and everything Tongue

(I actually probably could create a small proto-man-bun by the end, which is part of the reason why I realised it had to go...)
