If your mom squatted down in the forest and popped you out but then walked away, which happens, what choice would you have? Choices are learned and taught just like silly a$$ religions|opinions and believing that space and time does not go on forever, forward and back!

Forum bullies should learn manners. I am polite in my posts. Why use insultive examples?

Such an analysis assumes that the phrase "...why porn is bad for us" uses the "us" that refers to each of us as an individual. One should also consider the meaning if we assume the "us" meaning the collective. Is it good or bad for our society, our world, and for what reason or reasons. Arguably for the society it is NOT neutral.

This is rude, crude, and irrelevant. There is no equivalence that adds to the conversation or understanding of the arguments. Why did you do that?

Rude and crude are opinions sometimes carried by us all.

While I am quite often confused by jamison's posts, I don't see any personal attack in his comment about "IF your Mom popped you out in the woods" (note the conditional, thought experiment, "if"). This is nowhere near a fit for the definition of bullying just because it offends your sensibilities of what you may consider vulgar or otherwise off limits. There is a rather huge gap between politeness and bullying. Sometimes the truth can feel harsh and sometimes harshness is required in a debate to either press a point or get a shock reaction from someone who is doggedly locked into an agenda, who never seems to listen, never admits a mistake, never owns a bad choice.... never demonstrates responsibility and just keeps on foaming at the mouth, oblivious to anyone else.

FWIW I think jamison's post was ill-advised and crude as well as once again demonstrating his love of dense, chaotic jibber jabber but it is NOT bullying.

I don't try to make you feel bad, in fact I do the same thing with my aunt and my mother who are die-hard religious freaks as well! Simply because they were born that way? Bull-it!

That is absolutely and demonstrably untrue. Yes, I do commonly attack many of your posts (though not each and every one) because we are literally like Oil and Water. I trust in evidence and you trust your feelings. I will admit when I've been wrong and so far you never do. Attacking your posts is NOT attacking you. You really need to learn the difference or you are in for a lot of unnecessary pain and an inability to ever learn anything new. It is not my intention ever to simply hurt your feelings. I sincerely hope you come to realize this is true and cease to so often imagine you are being victimized.

As I mentioned recently, back and forth off-topic posts will absolutely not be tolerated moving forward in general. The first step will be removing General posting privileges for individual members; first on a temporary bases and then on a permanent one.

I'm not certain why this is not working out as I'd hoped in coming to some mutually respectful common ground, and maybe it would've played out in a positive manner like that given enough time ad effort but I don't wish to add to jeremy's work load or headaches, nor do I wish to be banned, so as of today I am putting Arcane on "Ignore" to avoid any further development of the process, however it might have turned out, effectively nipping this in the bud. It is a sad day.

Then how come i was not only one who noticed it as not proper kind of response?

HOW exactly my beliefs are creating demons and how are your beliefs creating angels? My posts are about helping this planet!
