Dominic, thanks for the friend invitation. I thought I insulted your intelligence but it seems that I didn't.

You aren't scolding?  You want people to drop everything to help you and then get angry when we don't but, you aren't scolding?

This conversation has become about as distasteful as any I have read in all my years on Atheist Nexus. I understand Nigeria was a British colony. That implies to me that the resources of Nigeria were taken out of the country and the people were not compensated for their loss. That said, I do not accept responsibility for the history of that

That said, I do not accept responsibility for the history of that resource rich nation. I have compassion for the people and hope that the people of Nigeria find their way to a healthy nation, politically and economically, With wise leadership, Nigeria can become a prosperous nation. 

Dominic, you can be a part of the development of Nigeria. The past cannot be undone. The future is up to the citizens. Instead of scolding atheist for not giving what you want, perhaps you can be a part of what is possible for Nigeria and you. 

"Nigeria lies on the cusp of greatness, having natural and human resources in abundance and with an economy that has boomed in the past decade, growing by some 7% annually. This, in turn, means that it has the potential to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 and lift millions of people out of poverty. But the role of the private sector in delivering these goals will be critical. Chart_of_UN_Sustainable_Development_Goals

NO, it was not spam. "Email spam, also known as unsolicited bulk email (UBE), junk mail, or unsolicited commercial email (UCE), is the practice of sending unwanted email messages, frequently with commercial content, in large quantities to an indiscriminate set of recipients."

Also, I support what you stated to Dominic. He is either very ignorant of good manners or very determined to get what he wants from others on his terms.

Being a member of Atheist Nexus is about being a support system for those who lack belief in superhuman powers, not an organization that provides goods and services to others who make demands on us.

*blink*  What?  When did he say that?


Hmm, I'm not finding finding it on the last 7 pages of comments.  He probably misspelled it, huh?

Comment by Joseph P on June 9, 2016 at 9:29pm

Even those were just the capper.

"Send me these books!"

"What?!?  You won't give me books for free?!?  You're worse than Christians!!!"

I guess the Christian bit counts an insult, but it was mostly just stupid.  Same thing in his final comment to me.

"Oh yeah?  Well, this other person in the US is sending me books, so I know that you can send me books, because you're also in the US!  So, you're lying!"

So umm, yeah, that makes sense and follows logically.

Oh wait, no it doesn't.

Oh, I missed #9 sub-5.  I was probably barely paying attention, that far into the list.

Technically not spamming in the traditional sense, but flooding can be grouped with it, if you're looking to streamline the list a bit.  I wasn't as worried about that one, since it was one of the more minor violations.

Comment by Joseph P on June 9, 2016 at 8:06pm

Is that one on there?  I mostly just skimmed the page, while I was writing up the reporting form.

Comment by Joseph P on June 9, 2016 at 7:45pm

That isn't really spam, but it's flooding.  That in particular isn't really a ban-worthy offense, unless someone continued it for weeks, perhaps, when people have asked him to stop and have complained to the admin.  When Dominic practically filled up an entire page of the comment wall by himself, it's gotten pretty obnoxious.

His other behavior fits a few of the various ToS violations, though.

Comment by Joseph P on June 9, 2016 at 4:10pm

His activities cross at least two of the site rules, I think.  I was happy to let that slide, until he started getting abusive about it.  Hell, you saw me still try to provide him with solutions, even after his first round of an attempt at Christian-comparison shaming.
