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.

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:

quote:
If you want to talk about the flood then read this:
http://religion.wikia.com/wiki/At-a-glance/The_Flood2

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.

Why do I have to rewrite each and every one of my posts specially for this forum?

THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE.

If you don't like that you're in the wrong place.

Edited by New Cat's Eye, : No reason given.
