I did notice the similar threads (delusional/mentally ill), but I figured since the delusional atheist thread had so many posts they just let it go. On the other hand, it's impossible to attack an atheist's "beliefs" in the same way christian beliefs are attacked.
Not if you ask the theists who post in RGT. According to them, it takes more faith to be an atheist than it does to be a theist.

Although maybe you meant it's easier to offend theists by attacking their beliefs than it is to offend atheists, in which case I completely agree. Theists already have to constantly reaffirm their faith and they can be quite fragile at times (not all of them ldo).

Rize's banning was inevitable (not sure if its a temp or a perma).

His content was often spot-on but his delivery was always just so hostile that it distracted.

I hope he'll be back but maybe take the edge off! This doesn't have to be a war. We're all here for interesting discussion and there's no reason for it to be so personal and nasty all the time!

Exactly. Funny thing is that he was told exactly that by several people and he chose to ignore everyone saying exactly that (that he had points, but he was being belligerent in his writing)

Heh, one of those was me, long ago (I haven't been posting in RGT as much these days, was a reg there for awhile- I've been sticking my nose back in there again!)

The other thread was open for a week (Created 8/27, closed this morning). So not quite the several weeks I guessed, but still long enough, and it did contain 250 posts (OP and 249 replies). Point is, it definitely wasn't flying under the radar.
That is ridiculous. Why wont Mat look at this again? Also lol Stu P. I think he thinks he isn't a troll which is the weird part.

Thread: "Is everyone who is religious suffering from a mental disorder" gets locked by Jib with the comment: "These sort of threads are not allowed. thank you. "


The thread: "Are athiests delusional?" is open with 250 posts.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....I wonder what 'sort' of threads he's talking about.

Too Much Of Nothing
by Bob Dylan

Now, too much of nothing
Can make a man feel ill at ease
One manís temper might rise
While another manís temper might freeze
In the day of confession
We cannot mock a soul
Oh, when thereís too much of nothing
No one has control

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Send them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion

Too much of nothing
Can make a man abuse a king
He can walk the streets and boast like most
But he wouldnít know a thing
Now, itís all been done before
Itís all been written in the book
But when thereís too much of nothing
Nobody should look

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Send them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion

Too much of nothing
Can turn a man into a liar
It can cause one man to sleep on nails
And another man to eat fire
Evírybodyís doiní somethiní
I heard it in a dream
But when thereís too much of nothing
It just makes a fella mean

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Send them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion

RGT is dead and has been for months. I hope everyone is proud of their work

Thread's too long. Are you claiming that Jib's modding has killed the forum or that your ban has killed the forum or something else?

Pretty obvious that neither helped the sub-forum. To what exact extent they hurt, we will obviously never know.

You leaving certainly helped. This is a good summary of why:

Jib was good because we needed a mod who would be around to get rid of the really stupid and annoying stuff. The forum was doing fine at least until all of 2+2 went down, which slowed down everything. Maybe it seemed dead to you because no one was making an angry mess, but I was pleased.

It's probably just my imagination that it's dead though...or the fault of hackers..................

1) The site as a whole is doing less traffic now.
2) People move on and forums change. Can you not name pre-Jib RGT regs that don't hang out there anymore?

I've pretty much left RGT because the discussions have gone stale. Seems there's only so many topics to discuss there, and getting rid of Jib or letting you back won't change that.

so we are aggressively agreeing then? it's not the hackers. the discussions are worthless. there may have been "angry messes" in the past, but they were almost always paralleled by provocative debates. in exchange for aggressive provocative debate, the forum now is provocative as watching paint dry. the traffic of the forum overall bears this out.

i don't believe it's a coincidence that all of the posters worth reading stopped posting in the following months after this thread. they were all going strong for years previous to that.

yes, forums and forum members change. this one clearly for the worse, both for the posters and for 2+2 itself.

No, it's that any given poster can only stay there for so long before they've seen it all, then new posters come in and enjoy the place. I don't think Jib modding or you leaving killed worthwhile and interesting discussions.

There are and have always been good debates that are without all the anger that you brought. I think the forum is far better off with more civil people. It probably doesn't appeal to you, but you and RGT never seemed to get along anyway.

Volume of posts should not be conflated with quality of posts. I think the signal to noise ratio has been up in the last several months. This looks/feels more like a lull in the conversation than anything else. If nobody has anything good or interesting to say, I don't think it does any harm for there to be relative silence.

I love how he bans bible quotes in the RGT quote thread when people show contradictions. Theocratic neo-fascism at its finest.

If anyone wanted to, they would have no issues with the mods if they started a thread showing contradictions with bible quotes. Doing so in a quote thread is different:

Also, this has not been said before but I do not feel that we need bible quotes ITT. Some very nice gentlemen already compiled a whole book of quotes and even numbered them for us, everyone has access to them.

If anyone an an issue with this feel free to PM OrP or myself.

I cannot prove a cause and effect relationship here, but there's a very obvious correlation.

It doesn't really matter though. Site mods seem content to let this fish out of water flop around until its death. So be it.

What do you mean it doesn't appeal to me. The current state of RGT doesn't seem to appeal to anyone anymore, including it's own moderators.
