I recent posted a blog for the second time and it was again singled out for deletion without notice. I have gone though this kind of bullshit before and because there is one asshole who decided to single me out, my blogs are being deleted while other similar blogs are not. This is bullshit. I think it is bullshit that atheists want to hate on other atheists and I think it is bullshit that some moderator wouldn't even give me the courtesy of asking for my side or for even simply informing me. I don't even know if this post will remain up since I am being singled out unfairly here.

In any case, i will continue to repost that same blog until some moderator has the courage to actually discuss it with me in a reasonable and respectful manner and tell me why my blogs are being deleted while similar blogs are not. Why are some atheists trying to start drama with other atheists? Aren't we all on the same side here?

I'm calling BULLSHIT!

DT: I am NOT spamming! (and infinite variations on the same)

Reminds me of the Mencken quote, appropriate with a twist -

We must respect DT's assertion that he is not a spammer, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.

This is all really just a text book example of Dunning-Kruger. "It's not SPAM - it's merely my superior intellect!!!"

The real high value contributors on this site post their content pieces without fanfare or trumpets, can accept errors where they are pointed out and accept criticism, take other members into consideration and try to post appropriate content in appropriate areas. And then there's DangerousTalk...

John, I have no problem with you. You were one of the rational people who offered advice in a constructive way. I am trying to end this and I would like people to be respectful of others and apologize if I got caught up in the hate-fest.

I posted this in another blog, but I want to end this, so I will re-post it here:

Felch, If you have a problem with someone, you ought to explain your issue and why you think it is a problem in a calm and respectful way. You did not do that. As I pointed out before, I don't think my posts qualify as spam nor do I think I am "stealing" anything. Your foxnews approach here is what I have issue with. Other people (even others who are critical of my posts) have agreed that they are not spam. What is spam is your spamming of my articles with photos of spam.

Also, There are other people ho post teasers with more frequency than I do. I have recently learned that the discussion section is more preferable to the blog section. I thought it was the other way around since when someone posts a response to a discussion it moves to the top of the list where the blog posts just go away. That was a misunderstanding on my part, which could be explained in a more rational manner (and was by one person).

I still think it was wrong for a mod to delete my post without notification or explanation, but I was wrong in posting a blog about that. It put me on your level and for that I truly am sorry to that moderator.

Finally, you are not a moderator nor are you an administrator. You don't own this site. Please stop acting like you do. We all are on here together and I have been trying to get along and to be rational about this. I am not perfect and have made some miss steps. But I am trying to reach out and you have done nothing but insult, lie, and swift-boat, among other things.

We are all atheists here, we should all try to be rational. I really would rather spend this time arguing and discussion with the religious and promoting reason, logic, and humanism than dealing with all this drama with other atheists.

I have made a group for non-theist examiners and will probably make a blog promotion group too *as per Daniel's suggestion). If Atheist Nexus wants to charge for posting there, I support that, but that is up to them. In the meantime, I think anyone who posts there should donate to Atheist Nexus in application of that service.

But you are still unwilling to admit fault in your irrational approach to this problem and to your escalation of general drama and hostility.

Even now that a solution has been made and accepted, you still can't let it go. You still attack with your Beck-ish rant. I don't think it is really about blog posts at all Felch, it is about drama. The drama is over now and you still want more. I'm moving on and I suggest you do the same.

If you accepted Daniel's idea, then why are you still going on about this?

It is not "we" who have a problem, it is you. It was pointed out to you months ago, and has been pointed out in the two "discussions" you started yesterday by a number of members that it is not good manners to make back-to-back posts. Give other people a chance to have their journal posts on the front page, too.

So, what do you do? Make two journal posts back-to-back. That was your first mistake.

Secondly, you accuse other people of being "drama whores", but you post this with "Being singled out again" as the subject line.... then start another discussion in the forum. You get the daily award for pumping irony.

A lot of crap on the site gets deleted without notice. You are not a special snowflake. Some things get missed. I personally have made mistakes in moderation. It behooves all to learn from their mistakes.

If you think moderators on this site lack courage, you are woefully ignorant. I am not at liberty to talk about the personal shit that Richard and the moderators have gone through and STILL managed to keep this site afloat. Seriously, get a grip.

I think it is bullshit that you are taking issue with site rules being applied. You should know what they are. They have been pointed out before, and were pointed out yesterday with links.

In any case, i will continue to repost that same blog until some moderator has the courage to actually discuss it with me in a reasonable and respectful manner and tell me why my blogs are being deleted while similar blogs are not. Why are some atheists trying to start drama with other atheists? Aren't we all on the same side here?

If you wanted attention, you certainly got it. Like I wrote before, and you ignored, you should have hit the "Report This" button.

I rest my case!

Shut up.

I already accepted Daniels idea, but now we have the problem that I have and that is that rather then trying to come up with creative and constructive solutions in a calm and rational manner like Daniel did (and a few others) we have a few drama whores who at right way start smear campaigns, attempt to ban people, and use beck-ish language and lies to blast venom rather that being calm and rational. This is the issue that I am having that no one seems interested in discussing.

For example, even though I have already made it clear that I accept Daniels solution we have some people who ignore that fact and attempt to use FoxNews style attacks like, "Of course, none of these suggestions will work in the case of Mr. Look-at-me." This is the Drama I am talking about. Instead of making attack threads, he could have been calm and constructive from the start.

I was referring to complete copies of his postings from his site that he composed - not the posting of the contents of external links in his blog.
