Seems action was taken in regards to our little problem here of late. Good to know the mods listen!

Is it possible that knowledge has evolved as an independent body of thought, and is the reason that becomes the instruction of the hive mind in people? And is it possible that religion is a body of knowledge whose time of influence is passing? And is it possible that the vacuum of ignorance needs to be filled with modern information to satiate the hive mind to alleviate the current struggles of dogmas that persist in the absence of education? Is it possible that our current system of education that bars less affluent and the greater body of people along economic restraints, from an education, cheating those people of the mental evolution of their minds through understanding our current evolutionary position in time? Grammar not checked--Please forgive any additional brain strain.

Good to know. Here's hoping!

Comment by Richard ∑wald on April 14, 2012 at 10:39pm

One will probably do.

Comment by Sarah Walton on April 14, 2012 at 10:37pm

Greg: Me too. Hopefully more than one complaint will make an impression.

Comment by Richard ∑wald on April 14, 2012 at 10:13pm

Yup, line that have no business even being tip=toed on this site, of all places.

Comment by Sarah Walton on April 14, 2012 at 10:12pm

Yeah, I like to think I have a pretty good sense of humor but I also have a pretty good sense of when things have crossed a line.

I'm all for things like that said in jest.  Plus, snarky comments in general are always fun.  This guy isn't nearly as funny as he thinks he is, though.  He's just an asshole.

This too...

"So, I'm not really down with hanging out on a group where people make threats"

Well, it's very much against the rules (on a few levels) so you really don't have to be down with it.

"Can we please do something about this?"

Here.

Usually actioned within 12-24 hours.

So, I'm not really down with hanging out on a group where people make threats--excuse me, "promises"--like "when I take over you will be punished". Can we please do something about this?
