a fairly intelligent audience

Postby demoralized » Thu Dec 15, 2016 6:17 am

Is this a fair assumption of mine?

I post here and tend to be in fairly deep thought most of the time here. (Sometimes not as much - I must confess with age/practice I am beginning to wear 'depth of thought' with increased ease)

I like to assume that most people at ILP are fairly intelligent. Formal education or not, well versed in philosophy or not.. seems like most people here can have a well articulated post, and/or insinuatingly suggestive posts. Even the "out there" posts are good in my mind. Maybe I need to start seeing the bad in you guys :P

Anyway I consider myself fairly intelligent; I consider the posts I read and the responses to my posts fairly intelligent. Perhaps the medium of communication assists with this in some way

No point to this topic really

Just voicing an opinion I suppose

Can you point me to a few examples of intelligent posts?

I have noticed this change in you and your contributory style...

I totally agree with this... the out there posts allow for more imaginative and creative responses, rather than the path most trod replies.. as a creative type I'm glad for this corner that threads have taken, but hopefully not too much on the formal boards.
