I think this type of "lynching' should be discouraged. What type of governing authority on this board would you like to create? One that decides who is ignorant and who is not trust worthy?


If you read the post, then you see the glaring absence of me ever saying there should be a governing board. I don't feel that is needed. Never even thought about that before till you brought it up.

As far as who decides who is trustworthy? I think every single individual member decides that on a daily basis. Sadly, as my OP mentioned, many times threads or posts proving themselves to be untrustworthy doesn't seem to phase people.

Ultimately it is each individual who decides if they themselves are trustworthy. And I feel they should consider their private answer to whether they are being honest or not before posting that they can see the future. Or tell someone else what "God" thinks. Or tells others they are wrong because their "unfolding infinite knowledge" doesn't agree with a reply.


What gives "Bob" the special ability to determine if "Bill" is genuine within himself? And why is Bob interested in denying Bill his voice? What if Bill was right and Bob was wrong? Judgment may be personally beneficial, but what benefits has a society ever reaped from it? IMHO, this is just a rally call for lynching! Lynch-Lite

part of me thinks some posters have more than one alias so they can drum up fake support for their threads.


I think this forum would be a lot different if we publicly shamed members for posting bad information


Yeah, great way to encourage member participation. How about you publicly shame yourself if that's what steers your life.

Well, I think we should petition the mods and site owners for a new smiley...

a small one like this:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

That and we can use it to flag threads.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” - Albert Einstein

I agree imagination is hugely important. Just as long as it is not spread as the "truth" from whatever source.

I think maybe the only truth a Human can say is 'we can't comprehend or know the entire truth in the universe/life.'

Man, it took a long time for you to reply ... I had you stumped didn't I?


Meh, the attention seekers are mostly harmless, it's the ones that mean what they imagine that I worry about ... and I don't worry much about it.

“The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity” - Andre Gide

Plus truth be told every outwards expression seeks to draw attention to one's self to some degree and one way or the other ... the trick is to make such expressions authentic. That is to say that just because something is meant to draw attention doesn't by definition make it fallacious ... although it doesn't help.

Lol no, I let the thread die a needed death. I just mentioned this thread in a post so I revisited it and saw your 6 month old reply.
