Default I'm Back

Now as I understand it the rules are:

When I say something I must be abused and bullied.

Is this right?

No, that's called "passive-aggression". It's never a good look.

Here's the rules.

Start with the FAQ section, rule of thumb, don't be a dick.
I look forward to your contributions.

Welcome back Boris.

If you click on the 'Introduce Yourself' thread you will see a stickied thread titled "|| PLEASE READ || New Member Information" (link).

The main thing you need to understand is that if you post here you are engaging with a group who, after taking the time to read your material, will, if they find it necessary, ask you to support or clarify certain statements - you are obliged to do so to the best of your ability. You know this going in, so don't post anything you are not prepared to clarify or defend.

Cheers.

Yep, SEG, it's about being reasonable.

I don't know why Boris would choose to lie here on the Welcome mat and cry about being bullied, when the only thing that's happened is that there was debunking of a wild, unfounded idea he had grown to like.

That's why this pic is on the New Members' Information page.

Mr Black, I just read through his posts and it reminded me a little of why I got suspended talking about the Jesus Myth Theory without pulling my head in. IMO, I got some suspensions without going anywhere near the depths that Boris sunk to with his bad arguments and attempted character assassinations, but at least I learned from the experience.

I know a fair bit more now about formal fallacies & informal fallacies and I hope to post here soon, hopefully with much better arguments shortly.

You guys rock!
