Now see, that's where there's a little problem here. You seem to think you and the moderator are the co-monitors in here ...
No, the "little problem here" is that you apparently do not read posted replies. It was stated that both
the FC moderator and I, (a regular FC member like you, not a mod), have recommended the use of the 'ignore button'. No claims to being an FC moderator were stated nor, implied. Your own slanted misinterpretations do not constitute accurate statements of fact, (especially when the post itself remains visible and archived).
... and that you seem to have rights that others don't with regards to posting and/or ignoring.
It's unclear where you're coming up with these random interpretations of what was actually
posted. It may be that you're taking 'inspiration' from the tactics of another xtian's on these forums, (or, pulled them from some nefarious nether region of dubious smell).
I remember a post from the moderator towards BOTH of US recently. That surely means BOTH and anyone else who test the rules, not just everyone else BUT you.
Being evenhanded, the moderator warned all parties involved so as not to be partisan in his arbitration of the dispute. I deemed that fair and wise of the moderator, (especially since you
were the one in specific violation and not I).
When a fly is buzzing around irritating someone, we don't just get up and leave the room, ignoring the fly. We swat at it or slap it with a fly swatter. Same in here -
Oh, that's a nice, xtian ad hominem; being compared to a "fly". Back at ya; the constant inane buzzing of proselytizing can be annoying to those who don't share the same superstitious beliefs of the blind-faithers do however, I've consistantly stood up for the same 'rights' of free speech as you'd deny to those who don't agree with you, (by these appeals to "respect", "politeness" and some tacit 'free pass').
... you aren't going to chase people away just because you think they should hit "ignore" because they gripe about you.
Using the 'ignore button' provided by FC doesn't even inherently mean people are subject to being 'chased away'. It means that they will have chosen to not see posts initiated by me, nothing more. That doesn't mean that use of the 'ignore button' includes not ignoring
by continuing to post about the one supposedly being "ignored", (such would constitute a failure to understand what "ignore" means).
No, they're going to swat right back at you.
You mean "buzz" if the metaphor is inverted to apply to xtians, (as a matter of persepctive).
The ignore button is there for everyone, this is true. I'm tired of certain posters who think they are "in charge of" this forum ...
There's another false assumption on your part; no one suggested any such thing, (your misperceptions aside).
... and then constantly disrespect people, especially Christians, and then whine when people lash back out at them, and then the disrespectful ones start complaining that the others should use the "ignore" button.
Your "whine" reminds me of a child who tearfully-complains to a parent that their sibling has committed some 'grevious offense' against them while omitting the pertinent part of the complaint where that child committed the initial offensive behaviour. That is, many of you xtians were here proselytizing and bible-thumping long before my arrival on FC. Several other members who preceded my arrival posted in opposition to such, (that much is archived). Now, how is it possible for me to arrive on scene - with all of that already on-going - and "suddenly" become the one who committed the 'first offense'
? That was rhetorical; it isn't possible and is as much of an irrational contention as your mischaracterization of events now.
You aren't chasing me away, period.
The suggestions for using the 'ignore function' aren't intended to chase anyone away since they remain able to post and read other posts, (just not the ones initiated by those set on "ignore"). Your premise is therefore flawed.
You say things and think it's non-negotiable or non-arguable because you imply Christians aren't capable. You are very wrong, falcon9.
While future events aren't necessarily predicated upon past performance, such capability is still swaiting, (however, not with baited or held breath).
You keep posting disrespectfully, and others will continue to stand up to your misconceptions. You want to discuss rationally with others, as a discussion of ideas and rebuttals outside of your continuous "irrational" words you constantly use, then others will do the same.
Before you dig an even deeper specious 'hole'; exactly which words that I've used, (in context), have been "irrational"? Find a sample of such and quote it in context or be dishonest in making false accusations.
I will not sit back and watch you continually come down on Christians in particular without thinking no one will respond to you about it.
Any old response is one thing, (like resumed b-thumping or tangential "complaints"); xtians replying to the content
instead is a rarer event.
Christians are not irrational ...
When it comes to their religious beliefs, they are, (at minimum), selectively-rational. How's that?
... and they are certainly not afraid of you enough to hit any "ignore" button because you recommend it.
Doubtless the FC moderator didn't recommend use of the 'ignore button' out of 'fear' and neither have I. See, that's at least three times in a single post you've made baseless and unwarranted assumptions, (e.g., the premise they were based upon was invalid), and yet you wonder why a deficient ability to reason has been inferred. Still, if you choose not to use the provided 'ignore button', then you implicitly accept that any invalid premises, assumptions, declarations, assertions, pronoucements, random opinions you choose to post aren't somehow "sacrocinct".
You don't deserve the satisfaction of being ignored - you deserve the chance to be responded to for your comments to many that are based in dislike of their belief in God.
Excellent. Responses to what is actually
posted, (rather than some irrationally-based misinterpretations), would be a refreshing change.
