Well, apparently when PZ Myers came to Atheist Nexus so did several hundred of us minions. I'm not quite sure how I feel about being a minion, I mean, what should I expect AS a minion? Are there benefits? Free sex? Virtual settings like these are always fun the first day or so, but what about next week, or the week after?
Last thing of this sort I joined was Verve Earth, which was cool, you get to see where other bloggers are around the world much llike a google earth format, but you have to zoom about 20 times to see everyone in a given area. Not so good.

I think it's great to have a place just for like minded atheists, but do they keep those pesky Christians out? How would they do that? Do we want to do that?
They can be quite entertaining.

To throw my two cents in, I do not want Christians or any other theists on this site. This is a site for us. This is our home turf. They do not welcome us to question them in their churches and we don't want them here. There are plenty of other places to debate them and we have enough stuff to debate each other about.

I think it's like automatic hell for any Christian to come here - and - make a comment. They'd have to join anyway I think - and not many serious Christians will make that effort, which means we will likely get the young and obnoxious.

I wonder--do lurkers count as minions?

No, the sex ain't free...you'll have to invite dinner first. ;)

I haven't seen any theists around but hey if they want to join us who are we to oppose? who knows, things might get interesting around this place...

There are plenty of other venues for "intelligent" discussion..... still, there isn't any way to stop them coming here.

The PZ-driven recruitment boom is a pretty good thing!

I joined through the PZM blog. It seems he's had quite an effect on recruitment. Re. 'allowing' Christians to participate: I think that any intelligent discussion should be encouraged.
