I have returned.
Somebody bought me a star so I can post here again. Anybody left from the "old group" of 2006?

And do we still get modded if we make fun of faerie tales?

1. I'm still here.
This is the ONLY place on
DU that we CAN make the case
for reason by calling faerie tales
faerie tales.

Welcome home!

2. Well that's different, then.
One of the reasons I left and was gone for such a long time was all the mythists who monitored this group and went howling to Skinner with their indignation over perceived "disrespect".

Some damn good people got tombstoned over the bullshit.

3. I thought we were allowed our own opinions here.
Unless we specifically call out other
DUers.

I haven't had a post deleted in this forum...

I've had loads of them disappear in R/T though....

4. Same here, we can usually post what we think about religion here
as long as we don't call out specific DU religionists.

Anybody who whines to Skinner et al. about hostility to religion on an atheist board shouldn't have been intruding here in the first place.

FWIW, organized religion is a load of bunk peddled to innocent children so they won't grow up and murder the rich in their beds.

6. Welcome back!
There are still those who obsess over this group and monitor every post, so be careful. I guess they are so caught up in their cosmic sky daddy watching their every move, they have to emulate him.

11. Tombstoned=banned
I don't know if they still do it, but on those occasions when we'd get a troll on the board, the mods would let us chew on him for a while (chewtoy) before banning them. Once banned, their profile was replaced with a graphic of a headstone inscribed "Here lies a Disruptor. He disrupted poorly."

10. Another welcome back, from the Atheist Gulag

:hi:

You'll still find lots of entertainment in R/T. Even if much of it is re-runs, like the "Stalin Comedy Hour."
