Well the tour forums freak me out. I guess I'm not nearly as "obsessive" as some people there seem to be. It seems to be quite negative and nasty too.

I usually just check in here when I'm checking my e-mail and such, spend more time during the week. On Saturdays if I have to do work on my computer or it's lousy outside I see what's going on here.

I really am curious, not trying to be negative or whatever -Dr Teeth's comment made me wonder, do most people see this place as a place to "prove your intellect" or just a place to exchange ideas and read/think about what other people say? I think of it as the latter. I don't think IQ has anything to do w/ it

I have no idea what my IQ is, but believe it or not I graduated summa cum laude from college, so maybe I'm smart enough to post here

No, I certainly don't think that's the case. I think opinions are still the same, the fight has just been drained. I'm actually talking about outside these forums, you can sense it in the media etc and I think that's reflected here.

I'm back from a trip to New York City, where my sister had her wedding over the weekend. I hate to sound egotistical but maybe I can help put some punch in this forum!

I don't think anyone can accuse me of being a lightweight on here, but there's only so far you can go short of getting banned.

I'm also on here less these days, because I'm trying to develop other hobbies.

retold..u meant...

I think that the few FYMers who tells the same stuff again and again knows only a few stories..they are not aware of anything except their own country...they dont know anything except that their own religion is the best and try to force down the throat of others...narrow vision..narrow mind and a shallow heart

This place has lost its excitement. It's become predictable. That being said, I still come in here because I have hope.

I think the arguments have become mundane. You can't have a thread about atheism without a someone trying to come in and preach, you can't have threads without someone spewing generalizations about liberals or conservatives, there's a lot of baiting and personal attacks, etc.

personally I stopped posting here because I got tired of all the bashing going on. Civil debate flew out the window during the US election and I went with it.

The whole campaign and election thing *was* intense. I don't remember an election that was that emotionally charged and tense. There were some strong feelings. Alot of people, myself included, were disappointed with the outcome. I think at that point alot of people tuned out of politics. I was tired as well, I wanted to think about something besides presidential politics. I didn't watch another installation of TV news until the pope died last month. I might add that I'm used to getting most of my news from the Internet anyway, not TV. People are tired. They want to do something besides politics.
