A dearth of debaters[edit]

No replies? I'm counting this one as a win. —Lurker 13:48, 13 February 2008 (EST)

Yah, I got the same dearth of responses to my post on the same page. For unknown reasons, our comrades can't be bothered to contribute regularly to the debatespace. If it's not in recentchanges, then no one visits. I'm still miffed that Rational Thinker abandoned a healthy debate I was (trying) to have with him. Then again, he was losing... maybe that's why. Which may also explain why Susan never responded to my observations, either. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 14:12, 13 February 2008 (EST)

Naw, pure iggerance - didn't unnerstan it RA. SusanMiouw 14:17, 13 February 2008 (EST)
Was that sarcastic? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 14:19, 13 February 2008 (EST)
No RA -truth.
I'm an agent provocateur (sp?) I like to drop a topic into a debate & watch the feeding frenzy. (mix metaphors) SusanMiouw 14:27, 13 February 2008 (EST)
You mean, you can't tell when you've been whumped? Ah, well, my post was made in response to your proposal that anyone who believes in a deity is so irrational that they shouldn't be allowed to run for public office. I was criticizing your logic by following it through to its logical conclusion.
Regardless, I would appreciate it if you responded seriously to it. As one of the more established members here, it would help set an example for all. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 14:38, 13 February 2008 (EST)

(I'm a newbie) - I know it was a - what’s the expression - something like - ad absurdum - means taking a proposition to its logical (and absurd) conclusion. It's obviously untenable to ban everyone but I don't think they're really suited to govern if they can't realise their bloody stupidity. SusanMiouw 14:56, 13 February 2008 (EST)

You were here before me. That makes you "more established". And I could have called you "matronly", but I didn't think you'd appreciate it. :-) --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 14:58, 13 February 2008 (EST)
food!
Party on my page any nobody brought any food? For shame. Lurker 17:17, 13 February 2008 (EST)
Um and RA, you made my page ugly. You know you could always just press "end" to get to the bottom of the page, or hold "page down" :) Lurker 17:18, 13 February 2008 (EST)

I blame the welcome template. Lurker 17:28, 13 February 2008 (EST)
You could also have just added another header... humanUser talk:Human 19:34, 13 February 2008 (EST)
Yay food! Lurker 21:29, 13 February 2008 (EST)

Goatsm01.jpg Just how many goats did you kill to make this, Cracker? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 21:40, 13 February 2008 (EST)

I must say...[edit]

...thank you. You made my day yesterday. You don't have to know why.

Please ignore the above if you are not who I think you are. Cheers, ГдлессЛиберал 20:54, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

First of all, I forgot about all the goat on my page. It's a little startling to see all the sudden.
Second of all, I have no idea if I am who you think I am, and if so if I did what you think I did. But I'm not above taking undeserved compliments and pretending they were meant for me. :) Lurker 20:58, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
Well if you have e-mail enabled you could always ask if you get too curious. ГдлессЛиберал 21:00, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
But then I'd have to get a dummy e-mail account. I see your trickses ;-) Lurker 21:07, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
You see through my liberal deceit so well. ГдлессЛиберал 21:08, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
Why would it have to be a dummy? Couldn't you get a wiseguy email account? humanUser talk:Human 21:43, 2 April 2008 (EDT)
I can be a bit of a smartass. Lurker 21:57, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Hmm...[edit]

I realized there was someone I missed, who wasn't around any more. Damnit, where did you go? Come back! (Says the guy who disappeared for over half a year.) Researcher 01:13, 18 December 2008 (EST)
