Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 878
Latest Activity: on Tuesday

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

God's Annual Performance Review (Betty Bowers)

I don't know about you guys, but there wasn't a performance review I had in 30 years of field service that I didn't LOATHE.  It seems as though Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is up for turning the tables on the person you would expect would…Continue

Learning a Language as a Mature Adult

Trying to keep my mind exercised, and not interested in most of the reading materials that I can find.I decided to attempt to learn a language.  Actually, two.  The dilemma is, how do I do that without going to school - not an option - and without…Continue

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris Feb 19. 14 Replies

I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I…Continue

Such Lyrics!

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Grinning Cat Feb 13. 9 Replies

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 11. 1 Reply

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

Questions......

   It has been 6 month now since I signed up for Atheist Nexus membership. The past year has been sort of a bi-polar wave of emotions for me. I hope I wasn't offensive to the folks on here and I think I have been but I don't know to who. My desire…Continue

Patricia, after one post, that's what I decided to do.

Just put him on report. I think I passed the test. ;)

For the record, I am generally in favor of free speech. This guy's post, IMHO, crossed the line.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 8, 2014 at 1:39pm

OK, Brent.  Now for the test.

Where can you find the Report an Issue button?

I am counting on you to get this right.  lol

Comment by Brent Feeney on August 8, 2014 at 1:38pm

Thanks folks. In soccer terms, showing him the red card and sending him off now.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 8, 2014 at 1:35pm

Hi Brent, the report button is at the bottom right hand side of every page.  "Report an Issue"

Just click that link when you're on the offending page.  There's a small category to check (Adult, Abusive, Bug, Fraud, Spam, Other.) 

You don't need to put any remarks in the "Descibe Your Issue" box, but it helps if you want to clarify your reason for the offense.  

I have used that link mostly to report spammers.  As far as other issues, we are pretty lucky that they are few and far between.

A few thoughts on some recent posts:

Pardon my Icelandic, but WTF is that "cultsmasher" troll thinking? Oh wait a minute...he's NOT! Trying to find the report button but haven't found it. All I could do after reading that joker's post was cue up the Twilight Zone theme music...

k.h., I don't envy you for your jury duty recently. Based on what I saw, that had to be emotionally gut-wrenching. I almost had a similar case a couple of years ago in STL City when I got called to jury duty. It was a case of a young father who punched his son in the stomach and killed him on a Christmas Day a few years ago. I didn't get selected for that jury; he was found guilty and copped several years (I'm not sure exactly how long). I was going to do my duty regardless but I think I was glad I didn't get selected.

Saw that video of the train passengers helping their fellow passenger in Perth. That sounds like Australian folks - they look out for everyone. Good folks, the Aussies; I'd shout out a round of Victoria Bitter with 'em.
