So...I'm left to wonder. Did a member basically tell me she feels constrained by not being able to tell me to go F**K myself, and that not being able to call me a stupid a**hole would cause her to feel all censored and hemmed in?
And when I explained that I merely wished to be treated with respect and not subjected to name-calling and flame attacks, did a Moderator basically tell me that someone may say to me/call me/describe me any damn thing they please and that the problem is mine for trying to exert "control over others"?
Furthermore, does anyone else read a tone of resentment into the replies to my inquiries? It almost seems like "how dare you waltz in here and tell me not to tell you to go F**K yourself and call you an a**hole. Who do you think you are?".
And so, my friends, let us raise a glass tonight to Steve Rider and the happy home he has provided for us here at ANG. We always talk about how nasty the fundies are. Well, buddy, let me tell you what. The atheists ain't no slice of pie neither. How nice it is to have someplace where my back is watched and my dignity is respected.
I mean it Steve...thanks!
