@Joan

Well, Dominic might not be an anarchist.  I was mostly referring to a few of my local atheists with that string of adjectives.  We have a handful of anarcho-capitalists who are more than a bit unhinged, and one of them got into a one-sided screaming match which got him (always a he) kicked out of the group.

Two of the others think that private ownership of nuclear weapons should be covered by the 2nd Amendment.

Blocking only works for personal messaging.

Comment by Alan Buchanan on June 12, 2016 at 6:17pm

To bring this all down to base level, I think this guy has a real nerve trying to con people from a group who are devoted sceptics to start with. Maybe he saw it as a challenge. Don't get too annoyed about him, that's the way people operate in this world now. Say " No thank you, go away please" at their first request and we don't need bother with them

any more. If they persist, block them, certainly do not engage.

@Joan, Yes, it was a bit of an eye-opener.

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 12, 2016 at 2:21pm

There certainly were enough signals to tell us he is an "asshole, anarchist, misogynistic atheist". Thanks, Joseph, for your help with language. I certainly lack that skill!  

Qiana, I am glad you picked up on the Facebook clue. I missed it as well.

I get spam email quite regularly from Africa about money scams, & I can't trash them fast enough.

I did notice he never got back to you, Loren. I find myself sort of hoping that he made it up about someone doing his bidding here.

Comment by Susan Stanko on June 12, 2016 at 8:25am

Yeah, Joseph, that is common among Africans.  I have had a few con men approach me on Facebook.  

Comment by Loren Miller on June 12, 2016 at 6:12am

Just for the record, Dominic asked me the same thing.  I told him I'd gladly do his leg work on this side of the puddle, but that I was emphatically NOT made of money and that bucks would have to be supplied up front before anything happened.  Seems he didn't care for that statement, because I heard nothing further from him.

The REAL shame is that we've had others here from African nations who have comported themselves WAY better.

I for one, am too damn old to put up with this kind of ''person'', so I am very glad he's gone.
