Other people have opinions!

Shorter Katie Kish [Google cache*]: Like, OMG! some atheists have, you know, opinions that I don't share. That's like SO ANNOYING! OMG!

(h/t to Larry Moran)

*Thanks, Micah!


  1. Everytime I click that link Firefox blocks it as an "attack site".

  2. It must be you, Fry. My Firefox works fine.

  3. From her post (at the point I stopped reading):

    I’ve exacerbated my energy toward many things and am focusing on more central ones.

    She needs some fucking remedial English!

  4. You know, that post was really just the kind of self-gratifying verbal masturbation that permeates the blogosphere. It's not objectionable, but it's not really interesting, either.

  5. Clicking on the link got me a warning from Oe that "visiting this site may harm your computer."
    Guess there is some problem on the site?

  6. As I noted on Friendly Atheist, the comments on her own blog are systematically much more positive than the ones on other blogs. This leads me to believe that the people on other blogs either did not read the whole thing, or have misconstrued the tone. The tone is tongue in cheek, not anger. Oh, look, she said so herself.

  7. I didn't find it angry, insulting, or whatnot. Just boring.

  8. I didn't find it angry, insulting, or whatnot. Just boring.

    You forgot vapid and narcissistic.

  9. It's blocked for me too (I'm on Firefox 3 Beta 5). This page has the info.

    For others having similar problems, there's always the Google cache.

  10. I found the post a bit confusing. First I thought the author was a theist, than saw the Scarlett A and didn't know what to believe.

    Still left a long, but confusing comment on her site. Thanks for the link!

  11. lol - i get why people think

    a) i need english lessons (english is my second language, after all. but i think im doing quite well.)

    b) i'm boring - i've never claimed to be interesting nor have i ever encouraged people to read my writing because it's more for myself than for anyone else

    c) i might actually be a theist

    but narcissistic? ...

    That's the first time I've gotten that one.

    As i've stated at a few other places along the way - I run, am on the executive for and heavily participate in a multitude of secular organizations. Sometimes they (well - the people who I have to deal with day in and day out within them) get on my nerves.

    this was a rant.



Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
