Jump to: navigation, search

Am I reading too much into the title of this debate? Is the implication that there is a certain level inherent bigotry on the site and that is increasing? Or isn't that what it's saying?--Bobbing up 16:45, 18 February 2008 (EST)

I believe it is. Which is why I won't touch this debate with a ten-foot pole. At least, not until I change my mind.  : ) --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 16:47, 18 February 2008 (EST)

I would prefer if you would ignore Interpreted blatant page ninja'ing and wait a bit until I've written the introduction. ;-) --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 16:49, 18 February 2008 (EST)

Technically, there's no inference - it's merely an increase from nothing to something - but yes, I suspect that this question does have something to be read into. Also, it could be a reference to Avenue Q. Also, AK, it was an attempt to break the tension. --מְתֻרְגְּמָן שְׁלֹום

We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that is more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it? --מְתֻרְגְּמָן שְׁלֹום

Nah, it's the most famous example of the many questions fallacy. --מְתֻרְגְּמָן שְׁלֹום

Debate[edit]

I'm holding off saying anything at the moment as I'm too angry at the premise. Jollyfish.gifGenghis Marauding

I like that AK thinks Jesus Christ, which I wrote mostly, is funny :) humanUser talk:Human 19:52, 19 February 2008 (EST)
I simply have to love an article that ties the Ministry to a downturn in the furniture market. Perfect synthesis of religious and economic history. GK, I hope that you'll A) realize that the premise is just an attempt to express a problem that I see in the dicussion climate here on the Wiki, and B) join the discussion once you've calmed down. In the meantime, please be careful with your blood pressure. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 15:18, 20 February 2008 (EST)
If there is actually one thing that always looks good in my medicals it's my blood pressure! Jollyfish.gifGenghis Marauding 16:04, 20 February 2008 (EST)
