What interesting thoughts.
We have here a forum for believers and skeptics to debate in a civil manner, and I see sniping.
I see a forum of awfully smart, distubingly ignorant, terribly mal-infomed, beautifully coherant, kind, malicious, unwavering, dedicated, damn the
torpedoes, did I already say smart? (types)
The point is that in any arena where there are SO many intellects going through one anothers musings, there will be conflict.
I, for one, have only seen 1 or 2 threads closed before I really wanted them to be.
I am not a MOD nor would I want to be.
However I don't think the MODS go to some secret initiation so as to know which thread may be offensive to the three amigos. They don't seem to
care about who is offended so long as one keeps a civil tongue in ones mouth, so to speak.
Look, this forum IS free.
I paid $1,200 for a computer that I still don't know how to use, and $50 a month for 'net access. (still not too sharp on that either) I don't
pay for ATS.
This place is education, cathartic and fun. Deny ignorance and let the good times roll. (sorry Mods, I can't source the quote. ref T&C)
