Essay? --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 04:15, 28 December 2008 (EST) Oops, didn't see this. I'll just move it for Geiger. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 04:17, 28 December 2008 (EST)

"Theists" is usually the term rather than "religionists," I think.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 04:33, 28 December 2008 (EST)

Is it stupid essay season around here or something?[edit]

Please stop. The stupid, it burns. --JeevesMkII 04:41, 28 December 2008 (EST)

No unfortunately it is "make stupid article full of assertions and no citations, then claim it is irrational to disagree with them and so we move it to the essay space to accommodate these unique people" season. Unless our friend contributes some more I am drive-by templating this. - User \scriptstyle(6\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}n^{-2})^{1/2} 04:48, 28 December 2008 (EST)
Wait, Jeeves—are you saying you disagree with a pro-atheist essay? Oh, do tell me why  : ) Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:27, 28 December 2008 (EST)

It reminds me an awful lot of Fall down's "essay". Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:11, 28 December 2008 (EST)

Yes and his argument for why it is correct "because I explained so in the article, you are irrational" is a lot like his usual defenses here and at the forum he came from. - User \scriptstyle(6\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}n^{-2})^{1/2} 05:19, 28 December 2008 (EST)
Actually now I have looked, it is the same fucking essay. Motion for burial or deletion? I like deletion. - User \scriptstyle(6\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}n^{-2})^{1/2} 05:29, 28 December 2008 (EST)
Eh? How? Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:48, 28 December 2008 (EST)
Go read the women essay. He has just changed the words women to religionist and men to atheist with a few tweaks so it makes sense in terms of sentences. - User \scriptstyle(6\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}n^{-2})^{1/2} 05:50, 28 December 2008 (EST)
That's actually MORE clever, not less. Maybe it's a subtle way to mock the versatile uselessness of Fall Down's work.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 08:13, 28 December 2008 (EST)

I second Pi's proposition for burial or deletion. This guy is still vandalising RW on a daily basis and making hostile attacks on some editors here, so, as far as I'm concerned, he's forfeited any rights to have his garbage essays hosted here. The more we allow him to post, the more he's going to keep coming back to haunt us. wassaiLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 08:36, 28 December 2008 (EST)

My US$0.02[edit]

I think the point our friend Usher is trying to make is that we would not have been offended by his essay if it was theists rather than women. However where he phails epically is the fact his first essay had such a poor argument you can just substitute the words and you could make it about anything. Implying his original essay was not well thought out, but was just a set of interchangeable assertions. - User \scriptstyle(6\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}n^{-2})^{1/2} 05:49, 28 December 2008 (EST)

Who is this FallDown/Usher character anyway and what's his beef with us, besides being a raving misogynist? I see he's set up camp over at RWW who seem happy to have him. --PsyGremlinWhut? 06:23, 28 December 2008 (EST)
What I don't get is that it has been over a month now and he keeps coming back, no matter how much we abuse him. - User \scriptstyle(6\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}n^{-2})^{1/2} 06:25, 28 December 2008 (EST)

So are we really...[edit]

...gonna dedicate server space to something arguing that Jews et. al. are "intellectually and morally inferior?" PFoster 10:01, 28 December 2008 (EST)

Once again, I don't see why crappy "articles" get moved to "essay" instead of deleted. ħumanUser talk:Human 14:18, 28 December 2008 (EST)
We've been around this particular mulberry bush a few times, and I still vote delete. There's no good reason, that I can see. --Kels 14:22, 28 December 2008 (EST)
You mean I'm not "intellectually and morally inferior"? Thank goodness. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 18:32, 28 December 2008 (EST)
