Who said it was resolved? Do I need to accept every apology made? No. That was me not accepting.


And sometimes being rude is what the truth comes across as. Being blunt is just removing 'political' fluff from your writing, in the end if I'd writen a less blunt and 'rude' response it still would have had the same intention; you'd just have to read it a few times to catch it. I like saving time and making things obvious.

You notice that I have made one of the boldest arguments in this entire thread, and not once have I insulted anyone's specific nature on here. If I can be polite, I know you can.

Actually, I am being somewhat polite. I can be rude if you want to be more accurate with your previous statement.

The fact is that I am just a sarcastic person, just how I am. Take any sarcasm as a grain of sand when it comes to me, that's my explaination, take it or leave it. Aside from my rant, no I haven't outright flammed anyone. But then again this thread isn't about me now is it? This could just be my aspies showing. Shall I overuse emoticons to show that I don't really mean everything as negative? :p

Better yet, attempt to work on your speech skills if you cannot hold back sarcasm. I can be sarcastic at times as well, but I do not make every other sentence of mine acidic.

Text is acidic because you perceive it that way. :)

With that logic, calling a person a "mofo" is only rude if one perceives it that way. It is general knowledge that aggressive sarcasm puts people on the defensive, yet you proceed to do that. Expecting a logical argument from a person on the defensive is like expecting a person to scientifically disprove gravity.

See but "mofo" is an insult. I have not "sarcastically" used an insult. Nor are you my mother. Thank you.

this thread has run its course. Its time for both of you to just stop. At this point your fighting over wording, none of which has anything to do with the topic.

This very much has to do with the topic. She is overly sarcastic and comes off as rude. This is why atheists are labeled "arrogant".

Sarcasm and condescending speech is insulting. Funny how when a moderator is in your favor, it is alright and said person is not overstepping said "boundaries" you laid out earlier. Should I quote?

Hkim, a global moderator, was not rude.

Quote:
I apologize Phantom, if I have come off as holier than thou. It was not my intention and if that is what has been perceived, then I apologize for not communicating in a clearer fashion.

And Voices, I apologize to you. I was not saying that you specifically were attacking the faith. I should not have been so vague. I feel you are simply enjoying the debate as it were, in your usual analytical mindset. I do not wish for you to misjudge my words.

I simply wish to see this debate remain courteous.
A reply with anger and unjust accusation.

Quote:
^ Then why all the fluffed words? Just come in and say to keep it chill? This isn't real life. It's the internet. You don't say anything unless you mean to, otherwise there's this handy 'edit' button.

Translation, that's bull. If you wanted to say that post, that's the kind of post you PM someone. Not post publicly unless you are looking for attention.
Quote:
'New Trainer'? Really? Just because I am new to these forums does not hinder my legitimacy in correcting an obviously over the line moderator.

You are writing a reply in a debate, not a Youtube comment. This "political fluff" keeps things courteous and relatively peaceful. As Exon Auxus pointed out (this guy and I have never agreed until now), the insulting of Hkim is uncalled for.

1. I am NOT a HE
2. I told you that that's just how I am, it's not really a big deal.
3. You agreed with me earlier on the other mod.
4. No it's not on topic. If you have some issue with me PM me, but don't drone this out in a thread.
5. I never insulted Hkim. I said I believe what they said was wrong, and no I didn't accept their initial apology.

Look, I wasn't going to say this. I hate to. I have aspergers syndrome. I seriously don't think that I did anything wrong. You're just imputing inflections on my words, making them sound mean. When they really aren't. Well most of them. The stuff where I was pissed isn't sarcasm or on any like that. I am blunt because it's how I express myself, it's something people learn to deal with. And trust me I am a hell of a lot better than I used to be. Sometimes when I get angry I say things and do things a little over the line, but your all out reactions to while I was trying to explain this is not called for.

Look I apologize that you misunderstood me. Just please, sarcasm is how I deal with things, mostly anger, so take it with a grain of salt. It's a lot better than what I could have said. Ha, trust me. (see?)

I am actually pretty nice once you get to know me.

But I do not consider myself arrogant. But even that makes me sound so.

Look, atheism in general has not made my life any easier. I was a DEVOUT Catholic. Hell Mass five times a ******* week should be enough to measure that by. There is a podcast I did with "The Thinking Atheist" I actually think you have heard of them I think you linked to Seth's site. I was on a podcast where I had written a letter to Seth and he read it on the podcast. It was the same thing I posted... somewhere else around here. Here's the podcast http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwD04RQlBxI I always like to plug in The Thinking Atheist wherever I can. :P

1. I apologize for mistaking your gender.
2. It is alright.
3. I said I agreed with you, but I would have phrased it far more politely.
4. You were appearing very hostile in the arguments.
5. It matters not how you perceive it. It matters what others think it means. I also have a bad habit of speaking without thinking.

The world is filled with sensitive people, and whether you or I may or may not think it is ridiculous when it sounds offensive or rude, we must be careful with what we say. Words can hurt people a lot, and believe me, I have learned that the hard way.

You were not the only devout Catholic here, as I was once one as well. I am also apart of Seth's forum on his website, and I continuously listen to his podcasts and goofy videos. There comes a line, however. It may be funny to be sarcastic, but many of those people who believe felt pain already (whether they admit it or not), and making fun of their "Skygod" or "fairy daddy" should not be used in an actual debate. I, too, am trying to work on making my words seem less harsh, so you are not alone.

Peace. =)

Oh, that last paragraph was just me continuing the topic.

I can officially say that I have never referred to any deity as "Skygod" or "fairy daddy". Ever.

But that made me laugh...

I have heard those phrases many times from many an atheist. =/

Yes, if a Theist can get passed the sarcastic and thought conveyed by TheThinkingAtheist, I definitely think more people would be atheist. However, one cannot blame the Theist for not wanting to learn from a rude teacher.

I think the approach to deism (belief in a deity) should contain less Hitchslap.
