    Goodbye!

    Thank you all for the many smiles and the friendships i've enjoyed here at SG.

    All things have a cycle and it is time for me to move on.

    Good health & happiness to you all.

    Where are you moving on to Larry? Is there any particular reason you're leaving?

    Goodbye :/

    A possibility?

    If so, it'd be sad to see one of the kindest, most level-headed and sagest members driven off by yet another religion thread.

    If it is to be so, Larry, I wish you happiness. I've always enjoyed your insight and humor.

    I'd rather see the ban hammer drop on whoever offended minir than have him leave. SG would not be the same w/o him - period.

    minir -

    Realize that those who disparage others' beliefs and who promote controversy for the sake of controversy, have the goal of causing others harm. That is sometimes not so obvious intention, often masked by an ignorance of what they themselves are really doing. They have not yet lived enough Life to realize what their actions really do, their responsibility levels are too far south of decency.

    It takes courage to stand up against such people and speak one's mind. And it is the responsibility of those with that courage to stand up for others too, and to minimally set an example for others so as to help promote the ideas of tolerance, justice, freedom, integrity and honesty.

    On more than one occasion here I have had to defend my own beliefs and the beliefs of others too. This I will do forever.

    There are always pieces of rotten fruit in the bushel, and it may seem like the entire basket is spoiled because the odor may be strong, but a little water rinse and the remaining 97% of the fruit is sanitized and made attractive again. The noisemakers here at SG are approx 2% of the membership, and they make it seem like there is a large group of them because their noise is so loud and sometimes unimaginably incomprehensible. But their bark is is not a bite and they have no respect from the decent folks.

    I urge you to reconsider and stick around. It IS your responsibility to lead and to set an example of what decency means, and to continue to post about meaningful subjects, to continue to educate those not in the know, to share your vast experiences so as to help others live a more meaningful life, to spread good news instead of controversy, etc. etc. etc..
    No one has any right to force data on you
    and command you to believe it or else.
    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.

    Unfortunately its not so simple as good and bad fruit. Each person can more easily be related to a basket of fruit, both good and bad then just all of one kind. You paint a picture more black and white than anything else.

    It is no members responsibility to spend their freetime in a place they dont feel welcome or comfortable. Its a shame that a member like Minir would feel this way, but if he doesnt enjoy it here then he shouldnt force himself to stay.

    Also the total regualrs ammount to about 0.2% of membership, the "bad apples" should be less than 0.0001% for any member.

    Actually I agree with this. I don't remember it being like this when I joined in 03. That's part of the reason I decided to stay after I got my DSL question answered - people were nice here, it was friendly, there was no nastiness. Now it seems like in a lot of ways this board is like a lot of other boards on the net - full of people saying things with the sole intent of starting a bigass fight.

    Minir, maybe a break is all you need. I surely hope you come back. I'll miss you.

    When confronted with the truth, running away is always the best reaction. Never stop and consider what you believe may be totally wrong, just run, run, run.

    Ah well.

    That is total ********!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Everyone has their own truth. What is true for me may not be true for you.

    That is the problem with some members here. There is no dam respect for anothers belief system.

    That's ok though. What goes around comes around.

    The diplomacy skills some of you exhibt are shameful. While you cower behind a professed ideal of "just being honest", really you do what you do because your hundreds of miles removed from the people you insult. IMHO, you do it to satisify your egos since it's not something you can do in real life.

    All you really have to do if you can't add anything meaningful to a thread like this is to "gracefully" hit the back button.


    --------

    Minir my friend, we can't dictate how much we try, to other members to behave themselves, but on the other hand, those who go out of their way to start flaming threads are pretty much recognized on the boards as punks. Only maturity will change that.

    I'll be sorry to see you go Minir...I know I can speak for many members here in saying that you'd be missed if you never came back.

    This is why I hate religious and political threads...I hate them with a passion.
