I've only read the first post, and it was extremely well written. Why you aren't getting many responses: A) it's longish, and people usually ignore longish pieces by new members B) it's preaching to the choir; most people here already know a great amount about classical greek philosophy, maybe logic, RAW and PKD, and C) fictionpuss posted in this thread, which ends up turning everyone off.
Ratonderio, if you'd prefer that I don't respond to any more of your writing, I will absolutely respect that.

Everyone else - if (C) is part of the reason then WTF are you doing allowing someone who you perceive as a whiny little troll getting in the way of someone else trying to make a genuine connection to you? Ratonderio has not responded to me in any fashion, none of my shit sticks to him. Here I am. Bash the fuck out of me in this split thread instead please.

I made a simple observation. People tend not to post in threads where the OP is a newbie and the only person responding is someone they don't like.

Get the fuck over yourself, srsly. You are nothing special.

Why the hell should I bash you over any other pretentious person that shows up here?

I wasn't attacking you for making the simple observation. I was addressing anyone else who may have hesitated to respond to Ratonderio just because I took the time to read and respond to his writings.

Because you're predisposed to bash me anyway, and I'd rather not fuck up the other guys thread.
