Journal Bill, Shooter of Bul's Journal: Still confused about Freaks. 5

I realise that every journal I've ver written is about freaks. Sorry, but I'm fasinated by them. Recently, I got two more. I'm just curious why anyone marks anyone as a freak. Anyone know? Any of my new freaks care to elaborate as to why they decided I was a Foe? I try to restrain myself from flaiming or posting anything too ofensive. If there is something I really feal strongly about that might offend someone I'll post it anyway, but I'll try to do so as clearly and logically as possible. I understand that everyone might not understand or agree with them, but I would think that they would respect the opinion and the manner it was presented in. Or do people just use Foes to demark those they disagree with? I understand using it for Trolls or those truely offensive, but why use it to censor those you disagree with? Are they so sure of themselves that they could never be wrong on an issue? Or are they afraid that they will read a well reasoned argument that makes them change their mind? Let me know, will you.

Still confused about Freaks.

  • I generally "foe" someone who says something spectacularly clueless AND proves clue resistant, generally in huge mega-flame threads, to keep me from having to deal with them again. When I forget why, I un-foe the next time I notice them (unless when I notice them reminds me!). Just about the only perma-foes I have are all Christian scum who think everyone should live their way. You didn't seem to be one of those when I went back through your post history and didn't see anything blindingly braindead, tho. So
    • I was curious why you did. Although, I am a christian and I do believe that everyone should live this way. Furthermore, I think more "christians" should live in accordance with what they preach. That doesn't mean that everyone should be *forced* to live this way. Nor should we live in a theocracy. We tried that and it didn't work. Bad things generally happen to both the church and the state when they get mixed up. The greatest gift from God was that of free will. Unfortuantly, its also the most neglected.

        That you could even string that sentence together proves that wasn't the reason you got listed. :)
