Come June 10, would you vote for a leftwing secularist above a radical right-libertarian to be WP's Most Strident Atheist given that radical right-libertarian policies lead to low levels of atheism?
I would vote for the leftwing secularist! 55%  55%  [ 18 ]
No, I would vote for the religion helping, self-hating atheist right-libertarian. 15%  15%  [ 5 ]
None of the above 30%  30%  [ 10 ]
Total votes : 33

I know, Cynic linked to the post. I just miss Fnord's catchphrase.

I wasn't aware Fnord had been banned, actually.

Fnord was never banned, you just couldn't see him.



now to explain the joke since most people haven't read the book:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fnord

"In these novels, the interjection "fnord" is given hypnotic power over the unenlightened. Under the Illuminati program, children in grade school are taught to be unable to consciously see the word "fnord". For the rest of their lives, every appearance of the word subconsciously generates a feeling of uneasiness and confusion, and prevents rational consideration of the subject. This results in a perpetual low-grade state of fear in the populace. The government acts on the premise that a fearful populace keeps them in power."

Really? His banning was one of the greatest sins of the old moderation regime, especially since it reportedly came about after a PM argument with one of the mods. Sort of ironic that you didn't know, since he just disappeared and no one was allowed to talk about him because of that positively Orwellian rule. :lol:

Apparently there were complaints that he was too aggressive in questioning the assumptions of the faithful...

Actually I'm kind of surprised it took him this long to get back, I mean it only took me a few months.

Yeah, but I don't think that never qualified as a reason for banning, did it?

I thought that the reason may have been for problems with the Haven forum, as there were complains of he being aggresive towards posters from the Haven forum, but I really can't say for certain

Anyway, I'm glad he is back, now he can join the strident atheists.

Well, right, it's often hard to know if someone got banned or if they left the site of their own accord, precisely because of that silly rule.

Although it's worth noting that I consider "right-libertarian" to be a giggle-worthy oxymoron.


Thanks for your endorsement.
