Well, Khet, rest here from time to time. I've paid attention to your posts, and so what. But you have ears here.


Some SERIOUS ears here:

I'm just along for the ride, and talking to whomever happens to turn up. I never paid for anything, so I don't expect anything, and so far, it has been a great ride.

@jeeprs,
Jeeps ok, pass it on..

Trust me, I'm kidding. I do like jeeps quite a bit, as it happens, but we are open to people, no matter how obnoxious we are. Or most of us are.

I take it is as us earlier types that are the problem.

@ossobuco,
no probs. I do have some people on the ignore list, but they are mostly the types who are deliberately irritating, obnoxiously opinionated or illiterate. But I find most contributors are pretty friendly. Really I like the online philosophy idea because the kind of thing I am interested in is completely off the radar as far as real academic philosophy is concerned, at least I can find some people who have some overlapping interests. But I do ask myself if I spend too much time doing this, I actually have a ton of regular work-type things to attend to at any given moment, this just seems a lot less onerous....

@jeeprs,
I won't delve into your main interest as I assume I wouldn't get it, but never despair. Be well and prosper, and besides, stop this now and get to work.

@jeeprs,
I always valued your point of view, even asked especially for your opinion on one ocassion as I remember. I agree with you th√Ęt www is a good way to encounter less obvious ways of Philosophy ! Keep on Ur track... Oops. Should I say 'path'... Well, we all know what it means I hope.

@Francis,
I understand.

On how I'm doing, I'm quiet for now. Not good, though.

Which may spark why I am so loud on a2k. I do hot air, y'know.



Always regard you well, kid.

Cringes re the kid, will think better of that.

@dlowan,
Well, hey. I can be quiet too. My obnoxiousness does know bounds, though I'm slow at it.


Moves off to side, thinking of dumplings w shrimp and other stuff.

How do you honestly feel about the merger?
This is the place to get it off your chest.

Here's something I've really enjoyed about our new members... I love watching them run into some of the old-time "colorful characters" we have on A2K and watching them discover who they are dealing with. I see a lot of the same logical challenges and discussion that I remember going through years ago. But it's interesting to see how the new members go about probing ideas.

I like our new pack of philosophers. I'm sure there are "colorful" members of that group as well that we haven't recognized yet.

No! adding "except Manored" to all your wishes would just make then longer! =)

Nice to see ya Phil Very Happy


Oops !... Embarrassed
An "worm welcome" can be interpreted in other ways besides calling em worms. The first thing that comes to my mind is being received somewhere with grenades and bazooka fire =)

Thats how I try to lead it, as well.

I don't really have much to "get off my chest", Mark.
I think most of us here approached the merger in pretty good faith & were a little taken aback about how "stand-offish" you philosophers appeared to be at the start. I mean, here were we, welcoming you like mad (!), inviting you to join in on our discussions, & the response from your members was to start a whole new bunch of what appeared to be "philosophers only" threads! Wink
But that was the natural behavior back on philforum, it was a forum about philosopy after all! =)

Everyone are philosophers, not just people who once belonged to a forum about philosopy. If a thread seens to say: "philosophers only", feel free to come in.

Hi Manored!

Kind regards!
