Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Response to greyl (Reply #6)

8. Ah. That would explain that.

Free thinker is the term used in the statement of purpose in this group.

I would hate to think you're uncomfortable with implications of how this group actually has worked over the years. There are definitely two groups opposed to each others' positions on these particular issues. We agree with each other far more outside this group than we sometimes care to admit, but here we pretty much settle down into two camps.

In the past, this opposition has been marked with rancor. DU3 is here to try and remedy even this divide -- not by reconciling the viewpoints! That will probably never occur. But it is possible to get along as a group that agrees on most things outside this forum while entering onto the friendly field of combat of ideas here. That is an ideal to reach for.
