Religious people get very little reps, it's xenophobia and religionism.

One meaning dirt or soil, and the other meaning a parasitic plant.. for someone this word meant i was flamming. Is it my fault someone didn't get the joke? 

oh and the spam bot got me because, 5 or 6 people asked me the same exact question so to each one of them i cut and pasted the same answer. Any fair minded person would have not even been bother by this.. and for a title of a thread that i do not remember. but what ever just a 10pt warning.

and then this last time again i took a pm removed all identification to prove yet again i was telling the truth. and banned again.

 i went back to 2016 and did not find another offense.


So what rules exactly am i breaking if i am not reprimanded for them?

I am going off of pm from you or other mods. maybe you have a list i do not.

so a total of 4 very minor/trivial offenses in what 5 years? and this is with the majority of the members ratting me out for any and every infraction possible? Simply because they can not get to me any other way?

To be honest i don't want anyone bann on my account anyway. forgive and forget unless someone is just being disruptive for the sake of it. just wanted to admit you apply the rules differently and you did that. no matter the reason the truth of it is out there and i thank you for that.

You sure want to stay here with the heathens, doncha Sport?

but by the grace of god, i still am one. I am no different than any of you. ive changed what i could but continue to struggle with the rest. i will stay until i am no longer welcome

Nine warnings and two temporary bans in nine years. Please let us know what it would take for you to feel ‘unwelcome’.

wow, considering the nature of what we discuss here, (religion politics) and how there's probably not two more volatile subjects that can be discussed..

And, seeing how big time atheist posters with everyone on their side like minimalist and the other guy what's his face were bann for serious/meltdown infractions, and i am here with little to no support, even hated and overly scrutinised i only average 1 warning per year and only 2 temp bans. This is not bad. seeings how one ban was a private message who privacy was never broken, and the other was a trumped up charge based on word play (calling someone a dirty parasite) which on an elementary level could have been taken to mean something else.

what would make me feel unwelcome? if you started a go fund me page and everyone chipped in and bought me a new computer with spell check and grammar software that does not adaptively learn my bad words, and over time ignores them.. I'd be like damum they really do hate my writting.. Sad

Actually, it's horrible. No one - and I mean NO ONE - has ever gotten disciplined that much and still remained a member. So, instead of bitching about how you get punished for rule breaking and adopting your childish 'I didn't do it' attitude, you should probably be asking why the Staff here have been so fucking lenient with you.

I know I do.

I'm done being lenient.

Ok so for the sake of the topic were we talking about kudos, ratings, bans or warnings?
"There ought to be a term that would designate those who actually follow the teachings of Jesus, since the word 'Christian' has been largely divorced from those teachings, and so polluted by fundamentalists that it has come to connote their polar opposite: intolerance, vindictive hatred, and bigotry." -- Philip Stater, Huffington Post

Which proves the xenophobia !

Let's back up a little. A rep is something given to you as the poster. Look toward the top right of one of your posts or go to your CP to see them. People rep you and leave a comment.

Kudos are a different thing altogether. Kudos are given on a specific post because a person likes or agrees with what you said.

Which one are you not getting enough of that make you think it's due to xenophobia?
