WOoooo HOOooooooo....I feel like a new man!! I just had my first topic lock!! I would like to thank the acadamy, My parents of course....Not to mention the moderators without whom none of this would be possible.......Oh before I forget I would like to thank YOU...the little people who stood by me through thick and thin in reaching this monumental point in my cyber-life. Maybe one day I will be as popular here as McUzi!!!
Pause to wipe away tears.....
Gee guys.....Thanks again!!
When you're done getting hold of yourself again, you might want to check out the forum rules posted by Goatboy recently. There you will find all kinds of topics that will get your threads locked in a heartbeat. Then again, you might find it difficult to post after that. [;)]
In other words, why start topics you know are gonna bring a shitstorm on it just for that reason alone.
I'd like to post something to this thread, but it is.... "LOCKED!!!"
Thats my whole point Kuiper. The it seems to me that threads seem to be easliy hijacked into places they were never intended..
The orignal thread that caused my now locked post was a simple request wondering how many other "non-religious" folks there were here. This seemed to me to be a rather innocuous thread. However it soon became the centre for yet another religious debate....which then quickly degenerated into a flame war.
My question is WHY!!! It seems that at every turn this sort of debate can come no matter what....this being the case why not leave it be.. if this is what people want to discuss let them.....I would however draw the line at some of the sillyness that I have seen here, particularly when it comes to harder core porn (I can find that on my own ) Mind you I do love the Pics of wives/Gfs with guns.
However an intelligent debate does serve some purpose...
Oh as to the McUzi style idea......actually I never found it that funny...just some of the responses!!.
