    thankfully the moderators are closing many threads recently in freethought. I never thought I would be happy with moderators closing threads...but this time I am...

    Fear not, Lluxans!

    I have returned. Through all the means at my disposal I shall attempt to alleviate the strain of boredom. I was away for too long, comrades, forgive me!

    edit:

    The new threads I've posted, to enjoy or despise at your discretion--

    E.T Speculation

    Required Reading

    Floyd

    There, a myriad of topics to choose from. Hopefully at least one is stimulating, if not of the mind, then of at least the genitals.

    Coming Soon: Another great distraction!

    Well ... I suppose we could always go the "civilized" route and create a non-enforceable convention of conduct and try to set a behavioral example.

    The following skeleton outline is as much as I'm willing to give it unless anyone else thinks it's a good idea. And even then I'm not sold, but it's something to think about:
    If people want, I can repost it as a topic and we can argue about the details and then anyone who wants to can simply acknowledge it and then do their best to abide by it. It would suggest such standards that non-compliance would not inherently violate Sciforums' relatively simple terms of conduct; we would hope to set a higher standard for ourselves.

    But if it's something that sounds remotely like a good idea, we'll need a fleshier, more sexed-up document.

    It's decent in theory, but in practice, I'm not sure how many people will actually follow all these rules- unless sci implements it as it's member code of honour or something.

    I don't like rules...that's why I am a scientist, and not a soldier, or a corporate slave...

    and forms like this remind me of microsoft...

    And that's the point

    And that's the point. Nobody wants to do anything about it. Why waste the kilobytes worrying about it?

    Zero's reply to Clarentavious' post only highlighted his point. I think there have been quite a few member that haven't been posting for the very reasons outlined in C's thread.

    However, I don't see any reason to blame moderators for the moronic responses posted; it's bad enough for them to have to read the garbage.

    In any case I've looked in from time to time and I have noticed recent quality topics returning; I can only hope it keeps up.

    Let's hope fpr the best.

    Cheers.
    Teri

    Dear grief, you mean it used to be worse than Jerrek, prozak, DJsupreme, spookz, Clockwood and the various incarnations of Abdulla/Jihad/Ghassan?

    I am not sure if my opinion is important in this case but, I think that here at sciforums there is a place for every single subject that people might discuss... I post when I need help, when I'm curious, I read what i want to learn about... I believe in different intelligences. Some people understand physics.... i DON'T... I'm glad we have "free thoughts"... You know why I am here? I'm a brazilian 19 years old teacher, who had few education (because in my country, education is only acquired when you are made of money) and I learned English alone cuz I didn't have money to study, and here at sciforums I had contact with intelligent people, that are helping me to improve my English and also learn about many subjects... I owe you people... and I admire some of you... you know this... well sorry it took so long but I feel better know...

    this place does seem to have gone a bit downhill. I left for a while and I come back and the free thoughts section is just littered with closed threads.

    And what is with all these Muslim fundamentalist and NeoNazi people that have to raise there hate of Israel and all Jews on every single post even when the thread is totally not related to that subject! If I hear one more thing about a Jewish conspiracy I am going to demand that heads start to role! Here is a conspiracy for you: a bunch of Anti-Semitic people have taken over the “World Events & Politics” sub-forum and are now using it for their evil propaganda purpose to make more skin-heads!

    bitchy little sparky

    instead of making a hitlist like some nazi bitch, respond to my post. the debate? a unified ireland

    Britain cancelled elections to the assembly in May, accusing the IRA of failing to make a clear pledge to renounce violence.

    who the hell are they to cancel elections? lemme reiterate my demands (sein fein's actually)

    i want an end to british rule in ireland.

    i want national self-determination, the unity and independence of ireland as a sovereign state.

    when? frikking now!!!

    make some valid points why you disagree this time rather than talking crap.
    why a self professed irishman would refuse the return of 6 frikkin counties is beyond me. now git

    I gave you a serious answer in that thread spookz - more fool me. So no thanks, I don't feel like wasting more time responding to a troll.

    You must be kidding if you say he lowers the level of the debate. He's smarter than you, does that piss you off?

    you see do not feel that sein fein's position which i adopted is not a valid basis for a discussion? and that anyone doing so, is trolling? give me a frikkin break.

    the real issue is your ego has been injured by my flippant and irreverant attitude and you seek revenge by calling for my banning. screw you! was this not the only time we ever had a dialogue? and by this example alone you justify your accusation? i notice you give examples of trolling by the others on your hitlist (bitch) but fail to provide one of mine (4000+ posts- surely at least one?)
    what is your definition of a troll? if you recall my ire was raised when gerry adams was disparaged and shit progressed from there. you really dont know shit. if you think you can waltz in here and mold this place to your liking with your hitlist...screw you again bitch
