Quote from: Dark Lightning on October 07, 2021, 09:32:20 PMNot wrong, but it's kind of like shouting at clouds. I learned a long time ago to not argue with xtians, especially fundies. I know people who will carry the torch, but it's just painful to watch the (sometimes willful) stupidity that the xtians proudly display.

Quote from: Shiranu on October 08, 2021, 01:46:39 AMForums are like public halls; if you burst into Bible Study Night at the Y and started shouting "scathing critiques" at them, what do you realistically think the outcome would be?
QuoteMy opinion; it's annoying as hell when people do it here, so I don't care for us doing it to them there. Live and let live.
Quote from: Gawdzilla Sama on October 08, 2021, 12:11:25 PMTry not being rude.
QuoteI don't need to speculate because I have criticized the Bible during a Bible study (Sunday school) session. I was not kicked out, and nobody treated me rudely because I had an opinion that didn't agree with that church's orthodoxy.
QuoteRegarding "public halls" in general, when people gather in say, a PTA meeting or townhall meeting, nobody is ejected for being critical of those in power.
QuoteSo why is mistreating and censoring naysayers suddenly OK if it is done online?
Quote from: Shiranu on October 08, 2021, 12:45:18 PMDifferent context, you presumably weren't a random stranger who just walked in, no?
QuoteIf they are found to be disruptive by the majority, people absolutely are thrown out. There are plenty of youtube videos showing exactly that happen.
QuoteBecause it's a private forum and they have the right to censor you if they want.
QuoteTo call that "mistreating" is trying to play the victim so hard.
Quote from: Jagella on October 08, 2021, 12:29:29 PMI think I was very respectful considering the way I was treated. But you are correct--online forums are rife with rudeness. If somebody hits me, then I'm likely to hit back.
Quote from: Mermaid on October 08, 2021, 02:59:05 PMIf you go into someone's territory and act in an adversarial way, the burden is on you to be thick-skinned. It's rude to do what you are saying you've done at best, and of course you'd be banned for being rude.
Quote from: Gawdzilla Sama on October 08, 2021, 03:53:27 PMI judo them by being the soul of politeness. One good rule is to hit the topic, not the other poster.
Quote from: Jagella on October 08, 2021, 04:23:06 PMI did hit the topic. In response I was hit. I hit back.
