What’s become of this forum?

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

What’s become of this forum?

It’s like a ghost town with no life in it. Like walking through the ruins of a lost city. Does anyone run this place or has it just become deserted?

K: it is going through a minor lull time after months of intense
fighting about the election.....I think we are all tired after so much
bitter and strident political infighting.......

for example, I am trying to get back to strictly philosophical thought....

I suspect that we shall be back at it shortly.. I am thinking around March 4th...

the timing of that date is quite specific...but I shall hold any more thoughts
about it to later...

I didn't realize you still stopped in occasionally, PG! The place is quiet, most of the Great Old Ones are gone, replaced with sniveling whelps. Or so it seems.

Hi Phaedrus,
Maybe they’ll be back. I guess they went and found themselves a life. Lol

There is some thing but moderation not sure about. Guess it's problematic to moderate some things, when anything moderate is immediately suspect.

This place is great I love it! One of few forums left which are not nerd autistic circlejerk who ban anybody who is not exactly like them...great forum.exactly how id run my forum.
At the beginning there was only Chaos, Night, dark Erebus, and deep Tartarus. Earth, the air and heaven had no existence. Firstly, blackwinged Night laid a germless egg in the bosom of the infinite deeps of Erebus, and from this, after the revolution of long ages, sprang the graceful Eros with his glittering golden wings, swift as the whirlwinds of the tempest. He mated in deep Tartarus with dark Chaos, winged like himself, and thus hatched forth our race, which was the first to see the light. That of the Immortals did nove yielded themselves to their lovers when almost at the end of their youth, being led away by the gift of a quail, a waterfowl, a goose, or a cock.

There are a lot of different people here on ILP. The name of the forum: I Love Philosophy <<< This name would suggest a theme as any good name would. In no way does the name suggest that it is a hardcore philosophy forum. ILP's name suggests more of a general theme, a theme that would suggest a welcome place to explore to your hearts content...whatever level of philosophy you want. One would not expect to always find an audience here as there are only so many people to go around and therefore some topics would only interest a minority better served by setting up their own special interest groups as some people who have been here might have done. If one were to set up an interest group and have it fail then another option would be to find an already established interest group - - failing this it would become apparent that "you" maybe ahead of your time, drastically behind the times, perhaps even delusional or something else causing "you" to find like minded people impossible.

It is always good to take a look at the world around you and also to look within yourself to find what is wrong or right. By this I am more or less suggesting that while the world might seem messed up, it is probably a good idea to work out whether "you" are messed up. There is no polite way to have this conversation if we are to be real about it. Personally, I think there are a lot of messed up(fucked up) people in the world. I believe the world as a whole is corrupt. I don't trust anyone whether they are leaders or the person next door - there have been times when I have seen that I should not be trusted and while I cannot always keep an eye on myself to monitor corruption creeping in, I do think about this often.

Doing what is right and believing what is good can be hard because the line keeps shifting regarding good and right.

MagsJ, you sense a large dose of sarcasm but how can you be sure of that? From this person I sense a lot of noise, something akin to what has been described as background noise. I put it like this because the small amount of "material" I have read that has been produced by this person suggests that they are either looking for a place to be or perhaps have some message to get across but is unable to open a channel to any audience, if you get my gist. I am not ruling out the possibility that some people do indeed enjoy pissing others the fuck off or more generally enjoy annoying people and/or starting arguments whether between themselves and others or just between others << there is some sarcasm for you, lol.

I’m sure you’ll even see a good faith reasonable response, in his last reply?

nothing makes me think you are autistic, I just said that to insult you goofball retard. I don't have anything against autistics or asperg goons...its just that some asperg goons also happen to be deluded and obnoxious lying cunts...but not because they are autistic but because they are cunts.

Insulting me is a difficult task. I am not going to disagree that some asperg goons also happen to be deluded and obnoxious lying cunts - It seems there are deluded and obnoxious lying cunts in all walks of life whether these deluded and obnoxious lying cunts have autism or not.

I am interested in what would make anyone think I am stupid which pretty much sums up the term "goofball retard". Is it something I said? Clearly something I said has set you off.

you are confusing being insulted and being hurt and being provoked and being offended. its not difficult to insult you goofball I just did it in 15 seconds...whether that hurt you...whether it provoked you...whether you felt offended and felt revenge was due and to what degree each of these things occurred...you answer that. why are you asking me why I am offended(actually provoked) when it is obvious you challenged me?are you a retard or an autistic goofball virgin?

Each person has their own way of dealing with others' aggression. Mine is direct and empathetic because I think pretending to be indifferent is for nerd bullied virgins who internalize their suffering instead of doing something about it but I think all men deserve empathy just like all animals and all sentient beings capable of suffering and anguish do... but most likely the best way to deal with insane retards and other offshoots is to completely ignore them and forget about them...I am willing to admit this might be so...

The only way to hold a conversation with you is to initiate some conversation in the first place and hope for a response. I have already worked out that you are going to call me names and attempt to insult me and I accept that. So far the most interesting response I have gotten from you is contained in a different thread and follows: who might you be? do you know who I am? Trying to explain who I might be turns out to be quite a challenge. It is easy to explain the basics and give my ambition but I thought about it for a little while and came to the conclusion that you may be asking a deeper question.

You are confusing me offering up a challenge, with me making some observations about you I am guessing. I will let you decide whether I am retarded or an autistic goofball. I am not here to tell you how to think.
