I miss winofiend's old avatar!
And I don't know, a little character in how persons express isn't always so bad. Is like watching Christopher Hitchens or William Lane Craig, they are
not always respectful but always fascinating.
There are lots of persons on ATS I enjoy reading such as ArMAP, DJW001, Chadwickus etc ... So very many, and also lot of nice persons mentioned in
this thread, but I suppose one thing I find with ATS is I can't always say nice things. Sometimes I want to post 'that was awesome!' but I have
nothing else to say. >.<
Sometimes though its persons I disagree with muchly, and I just respect people's demeanour, logic, things they've taught me, or some combinations. So
mostly an opportunity to say those things for those who maybe don't know:
SayonaraJupiter: This will surprise some persons, Sayonara was one of the first persons I met on ATS. Sayonara has caused me to know more about Howard
Hughes, Stanley Kubrick, and Richard Nixon than I ever thought possible. May not agree with logic or even method, but sincere in their beliefs and
Stumason: I haven't read huge amounts of Stu, but very memorable discussion once where I thought it would go 'the wrong way' but proved me totally
Human_Alien: So nice and respectful even when others aren't. One of those rare persons that remembers who you are even if you have not much else in
DocHolidaze: Don't always agree, perhaps don't always even understand each other, but I have always had the impression Doc actually reads and
remembers people. Is very rare here.
TheRedneck: Disagree more often than not, but always straight to point, easy to read. Wish to see more discussions with.
Squiz: The most well read Intelligent Design advocate I've met since William Lane Craig. Could spend all day talking to this person. Gives me books.
DestinationNow: Disagree at times, but posts many neat links and news articles when does so. Danke.
karl 12: Provides me with books to read and links even though doesn't have to and probably finds it bothersome haha .<
Sonofthesun: Always cheerful to me and debate partner
Chamberf=6: Another person I read but never talk to >.< my brain is still tiny
JohnnyCanuck: A little like Phage in that says the thing I was going to say with 3800 less characters :/ we never talk but I always nod a little and
say ... I really must remember to thank this person
TheWrightWing: Probably unexpected like SayonaraJupiter, but learnt a lot about person's beliefs from posts. There are a few others like this that
question my convictions but they are kind of rare.
I stop here. Spent a while thinking of people, and I'll have missed ones ... Remembering people is very important to me, but some I remember when I
see their names unfortunately!
If I ever seem a little distant or impersonal / vanishing in middle of discussions, is just am always worried about being off topic and never have
much time to make posts.
Feels nice to give a shout out to all those people who maybe have no idea I remember them I guess.
I wrote this stuff before reading your post Doc, I promise! And I always think my grammar and writing is all over the place. >.<
