How can we deal with insane users of these forums

Chat about anything your heart desires here, just be civil. Factual or scientific questions about philosophy go here (e.g. "When was Socrates born?"), and so most homework help questions belong here. Note, posts in the off-topic section will not increase new members post counts. This includes the introductions and feedback sections.

No joy, alas.
-1- wrote:-1- is definitely not sexual, or scatological, or enticing evil. It is not sexist, racist, sadist, masochist, religionist, communist, existentialist, Marxist-Leninist, Darwinist, Dawkinist, post-modernist or Trotskiite.

I'll be damned if I could name its specific kind of crap.
You are correct. Nor is it bourgeois, homophobic, bestial or Nazi. Most commendable.

Is your username to be pronounced? "one" or "dash one dash"?
Greta,
Insane posts (opinions) are not ok, but it is ok for you to go off topic?
Things are not always as they appear; it's a matter of perception.

The eyes can only see what the mind has, is, or will be prepared to comprehend.

Is your post on topic, Misty?

Is this a serious topic? Is a little levity ok? Must we be deadly earnest all of the time?
