I'm outta here

I'm kinda fed up with having to run the gauntlet all the time, and sick of having to prove that I'm credible. It's been a fun year. I wish all you well. Might be back eventually, but this environment is just too exclusive for my little noggin at present. I'm not storming off in a huff, at all. Just ...

K, if I may speak freely, I don't see you as a moderator. I am glad you're here, and I've greatly enjoyed your enthusiasm and spirit. I just suspect that you're a wee bit too quick to react to make a solid moderator -- at least you are now. It is a learned skill. (I have moderated a couple of now-de...

May I butt in with a few semi-informed observations? Being a moderator on an active board, even in a very limited capacity, is surprisingly challenging. Even if moderators here are not called upon to enforce terms of service and herd discussions along, they'll still have quite a job on their hands. ...

To be honest, K (can I still call you that?) I think Precip left because the technical aspects of the new eplaya were giving her hives. I don't think it had anything to do with you.

I'm on the Scientology hit list. Seriously. Not because I ever subscribed to such pap but because in the younger days of USENET I was passing out copies of all the OT levels. I still have them all. All $400,000.00 worth which is about what it takes in 'donations' to the Church of Scientology(TM) to...

As with everything on Ye Olde Internet, take it with a fistful of salt. I think Andreas' most convincing evidence comes from the testimonials of former members, and the OT levels and other official literature.

It really is the money issue that chaps my ass the most. I think people can believe any damfool thing they like, but to PAY for it is just plain laughable. The other big problem with Scientology is that it isolates its members from the rest of the world, and convinces them that everyone outside the ...

Scientology basically recycles Freud and Nietzsche, gussies it up with ludicrous quasi-scientific jargon, and charges uneducated people a gajillion dollars to swallow it all. They also use borderline brainwashing techniques and "technology" like the E-meter (basically a primitive lie detector) to du...

Can a distinction be drawn between "dressing up all crazy" and "wearing a costume"? To me, a costume expresses a concept, whereas dressing up all crazy is just sorta fun and contributes to the landscape. I like looking at the folks who dress all crazy, and I like doing it myself sometimes, but I con...

Burning Man may be "radically inclusive" in theory, but its location and timeframe and the amount of financial liquidity one must possess to attend are built-in exclusionary factors. OF COURSE I'm not going to suggest an org-endorsed "affirmative-action"-type program. (If I had the time, the money a...

Please be as complete in your answer as possible.

This problem is sticky. I'm not really sure what I think about it yet, although Tiara's suggestion seems like a good one.

I confess that I am about to break my TMI-blathering promise. The summer of 2001, I spent some time hanging out with a boy. I had a crush on him, a little crush, of the worshipful, not-quite-romantic variety. He was beautiful, in an elfin way, and was totally unaware of his beauty; he was also bril...

Decompression always sucks. The only way to combat the things you find heinous out here in the world is to work to change them.

If you just look at Burning Man as an escape, everyone suffers.
