Every single one of my threads gets closed because it is cut and pasted from some earlier post of mine on another forum. I have no idea why you expect me to rewrite every single one of my posts specially for this particular formum

Why BELIEVE that it will rain today when you can KNOW that it might rain today. Belief is unnecessary and illogical.

A moral person is a person that understands that the universe does not revolve around their ego.

A civilized society is a society whose laws do not revolve around any one person or group of people.
The more a society treats everyone as equals the more civilized it is.

What I have seen is that your postings on other forums had some sever criticism in responses, and you did not address them, but are trying again here without any modification to address those criticisms.

That is not debate, it is, at worst, spam, and at best, it is cowardly avoiding the criticisms.

imho

What's your definition of trolls then?

My definition includes spamming a lot of forums with the same information with no response to criticism.

LOL

And even if you retyped them instead of using cut-n-paste they would get rejected.

This is a discussion site, not a spam platform.

If you spent a bit of time trying to not look exactly like a loony it might help.

Looney? Like drinking blood and washing in blood? That sort of Looney? Or talking donkeys?

Seems to me that there are lots of loonies around here and you take them seriously.

Every single one of my threads gets closed because it is cut and pasted from some earlier post of mine on another forum.

In the Rules that you agreed to when you created an account is:

quote:
6. Avoid lengthy cut-n-pastes. Introduce the point in your own words and provide a link to your source as a reference. If your source is not on-line you may contact the Site Administrator to have it made available on-line.

.

I have no idea why you expect me to rewrite every single one of my posts specially for this particular formum

I come to this site to hear directly from the other members. The internet is full of shit that I can go look up - I'm here to talk to people. And argue for fun.

Cut and Paste battles are lame - let's dance for real.

"Introduce the point in your own words"

But those were my words. You argue for fun and you admit it? I'm not here to argue with anybody over anything. I'm here to discuss things rationally and calmly.

But those were my words.

Sure, avoid copying and pasting them. The proper thing to do would be to give us the jist of it and then link to where you posted it before.

You argue for fun and you admit it?

Yes, I like to argue, i.e. debate. Also, it hones my communication skills - and chicks dig guys with skills

I'm not here to argue with anybody over anything. I'm here to discuss things rationally and calmly.

Arguing is best done rationally and calmly. They're not mutually exclusive.

You're doing it wrong.

From Message 7:

If you want to talk about the flood then read this:

That's not how we do it around here. We don't "debate by links".

Write your argument yourself or GTFO.

Also in the Rules, that you agreed to:

quote:

5. Bare links with no supporting discussion should be avoided. Make the argument in your own words and use links as supporting references.

I don't think you're in the right place - you should move along.
