I  think what Boyg is saying is that it is turning into a group of like minded people all agreeing with each other.


Spot on.

Changing the subject, has anybody heard from Anchorman/Jim?


He posted on Facebook a few weeks ago. His screenreader has an issue with the adverts on R&E and freezes whenever he tries to access the site.

Wow, judging by the prolonged arguments that go on there I would hardly call it a nodfest!

Only because the invasion of the bodysnatchers isn't complete over there yet.

How many of those arguments are actually old arguments being argued by the same old people? Floo is great at resurrecting dead threads, never adding anything new to it, just repeating herself, over and over, year after year. Sometimes it's best to just shoot that cow and go to bed early. Shoot the dead thread, not floo, honest indian.

I may have to moderate you.


Joke, honest!

None of which alters the fact that the forum isn't a nodfest, as suggested. QED.

You can put that strawman down now Leonard.

Because I didn't say that it was.

Try reading for comprehension next time.

Since I brought up a bovine slant, I must say that there is an ever increasing herd mentality over there. The Holsteins really gather together in the barn yard and go after any critter that comes along looking and acting different.

I don't understand why an athiest would want to become a minister in the first place.

Atheism isn't a religion, organisation, club or cult. It's just a disbelief in gods. There are different degrees of disbelief, as many as there are disbelievers.

I might go to see an athiest minister out of curiosity, but I certainly wouldn't become a follower.

The very idea goes against my instincts.
