> Nice to read some of the posts here guys.
> AND I can't see what was wrong with Estella's post either. When individuals aren't entitled to their own opinions .. is there something wrong with the system.. or is it another form of this group thing I just don't get???!!!
"... please try to accept what I decide and to trust that I'm doing my best to be fair and to do what I think will be good for this community as a whole"
This is the altar call for Psychobabble taken from the FAQ. Almost all the rules are subjective. Trust in Bob and trying to figure out what Bob wants is the guiding principle. Rules are applied randomly and administrative inconsistency is a given. Rulings are handed down from on high based on Bob's apparent supernatural knowledge of what posters mean and what other posters known only to him might think they mean or feel. We are asked to trust him. It sounds like some sort of that group thang to me. :)
> Hugs, Estalla (I reckon you were 100%in the right). Thanks for still having an opinion of your own, even if I don't think people can survive within defined religions or something to replace them.. no idea why though. I can,
But are you sure you haven't replaced them with something? do you believe murder is wrong? stealing? lying? why? If you are operating totally from your personal ethics where did they come from?
> Ya know, they say the ability to form a religion or political grouping or some belief grouping is what distinguishes humans from other animals.. say dogs.. ??? Guess that's why I like/understand dogs:-) Theys eem to be able to love inconditional and feel and think without having any rules to follow:-)
My dog was attacked by a fellow dog yesterday and I jumped in and saved him. I hope that renegade can be taught a rule or two by his person. Chalk one up for the human race?
But thanks for returning us to the subject of dogs and Kinky Friedman friend of the lost dawg....this thread really got away from my topic didn't it?
