Re: Dial back the moderation a notch please

LOL PorkChop is the admin! Welcome to Dharmawheel.net, home of the trash talking admin Porky. There are laws against libel, but it's a non-issue for forums because cases are virtually never successful and they would be directed to the individual posters, not the forum.

Re: Dial back the moderation a notch please

Passive-aggressive trolls are the worst and this forum is 70% PA trolls.

Re: Hyperbole around Syrian refugees in US

Humans compete over resources. How opposing groups are defined is arbitrary. Natural selection has imprinted "enemy is other", "enemy takes what I need to live", "enemy must die or be exploited", in the same way that "spiders are dangerous" is imprinted.
