I'm going to risk rehatching an old theme here and say that maybe if we were more open to everybody's beliefs (newcomers and others alike), then people would feel more comfortable posting what they feel.

Generally we like to keep the threads in here on the three topics listed in the description. Try doing that in the future. None of the Mods like creating or enforcing rules but this question could have been asked in other ways.

Thanks.

this forum is dead because people usually love what they believe in, and therefore have pride in it. and anything people have pride in, they get touchy about...and anything people get touchy about, they get easily offended about. and if people get offended they don't come back.
simple if you look at it right. i quite posting here awhile ago because i have a pride problem. i'm getting over it like a bad addiction...but you know...pride is the worst drug in the world. it makes you feel good one minute, and the next, if it's injured, then it makes you feel like shit. hang overs for days.

This forum is far from dead.  I oughta know. I read every post and thread.  It ebbs and flows and this is one of the slower cycles but it is far from dead.

Wanna see dead?

Go to the literary forum.  They're giving sex advice over there to attract people. :smirk:

You're Shroomism?


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

Because most people who post here are preachers(not neccesarily religous) and the active congregation is relatively small. So what you have is a lot of preachers preaching to other preachers which surely must be some form of hell. That's why I rarely post here. That and the fact that I find myself talking less about these matters as I grow older.

Preachers require dogma. I and several others do not subscribe to dogma.
Egotism likes cleverness.

That and the fact that I find myself talking less about these matters as I grow older.

This is the true hell.

actually riot in this context is defined as a public act of violence by an unruly mob or a state of disorder involving group violence.  I don't believe any good can come from acts of violence. 
*edit, so yes you're right.  :smile:

I agree with whiterastahippie - I like to read this fourm now and then, but I hardly post because of how stoneset everyone is in their belifs. Not that thats bad, just frustrating maybe. It feels like its not a discussion, but an argument at some points.

I am still new to this forum. It is my favorite of the forums. I post my ideas and thoughts here. Some my rip my views apart by there beliefs. But i still am open minded to what most of ya'll have to say. I try to come to the forums atleast 2 to 3 times a day, but some days i can't even touch my compter =(.

peace out my brothers, for everyone has a bit of insanity in them

This forum seems dead lately.

Actually to go back to the original premise, this is one of the most active forums at the Shroomery. I checked the recent statistics to see if this was accurate and we are posting at a rate of about 85 posts per day. There are only 4 other forums more active than this one.

Now, as I know our 'friend' enter I am sure he will find another way to complain. In any event I prefer quality over quantity.

Enter? Quitcher bitchin.

Aside from occasionally having my ideas ripped apart,  I think this is the best forum at the Shroomery - sort of the unruly heart and soul of the community. I haven't posted here lately (I've been whoring it up in OTD  :grin:), but I've also noticed the ebb and flow of actual intelligent philosophical debate...

Stick around and catch the next wave won't you?
