[Serious] Make Atheist Forums Great Again (Part 2)

RE: Make Atheist Forums Great Again (Part 2)
This is different from the civility subsection in soooo many ways, but it should give folks who don’t want “vile” talk a way to converse, so I don’t get the problem.

^ I wish everybody had the will to not respond to trolls. Sadly, they're our longest threads.
Does Everena deserve to be called a troll? Is there an objective statute of limitation for "obnoxiousness? lol. Dunno

More serious theists (and anyone else) can post a [serious] thread to have a [serious] discussion. Fuck the trolls. They don't need or deserve any special protection.

The trolls have judged that, due to your beliefs and your behavior, you deserve to be ridiculed and insulted. In return, we judge that they deserve to be ridiculed and insulted. 

As long as each of us thinks we have the right and the duty to behave this way, the ridicule and insults will prevail.

I can't stop their behavior, but I can stop acting like them.

All I'm saying is that we vet people first. "Moderation in all things," right? ... this includes protection of troll sensibilities.

I hope part of our updates will be a reminder to people that it’s easier for them not to feed the troll than it is for us to determine who is a troll or not quickly enough for their satisfaction.

I can see this as a big help for political discussions. Too often, if they gather any attention it's just mudslinging and emotional posturing.

Agree about the MK thing.
He was never a troll. He was too far gone to know...
No God, No fear.
