Ok just thought I would ask this question if you feel the need to dump on me go right ahead I am a big boy and can take it. I dont mean to be rude or crude I am just trying to get people to think about the shoe being on the other foot and maybe crack their hardened hearts to look at it form the other point of view where ever possible. I know when I first started on here I had a rating of two I dont think I was very well liked at all but I kept arguing and I am up to 9 who knows maybe 2 again by tomorrow. So heres your chance to tell me I am thick headed if you want and no I wont give you a negative rating...lol.

LOL... you have a #9 and you think you have offended people? See what happens if you take these positions: 1) I do not trust or believe in organized religion. I am NOT an athesist. 2) I have stated that in the Middle East War, the US military is running an efficient killing machine for Islamic radicals. If Muslims weren't too stupid/stubborn to admit it, they'd make peace. All the talk about the war going bad for the USA is concerning the cost in dollars. The kill ratio is very decidedly in the favor of the USA. The numbers of Americans being killed in the war is far less than those being killed by violent criminal action in the USA. If fact, many times more Americans are murdered in the USA than are killed in the Middle East. Meanwhile, Muslims are drawn from around the world to be slaughtered in the war. It is a trap. Muslims, wise up, end the war now! 3) Debunk man made global warming over and over again. Use charts and url's to science sites.

LOL, red I love you man! why others have given you such a bad rating I have no idea and most of the things you talk about we pretty much agree on so why you have a 2 still and I am at 9 is just mind boggling, especially when we both had a 2 when I first started. the fact alone that you always back up your topics with multiple resources shows you make damn good posts instead of the I feel responces. without a doubt something needs to change with the rating system especially in your case.

I think the next topic I make should be about getting your number increased well above number two...lol.

Hmmm...I'd rather not have a campaign to raise my number. I'm pretty certain, given how low my number is and how many best responses I have, that there is an organized effort to keep my number low. Otherwise, where did all the best responses come from? It is not worth the effort to raise my number and it would give the nameless cowards keeping it low great pleasure to defeat out efforts to raise it. They easily could defeat an effort to raise it, too. I have pretty good reason to believe that, but won't say why. So, leave the number to raise and lower as it will and myLot will eventually do something about it. They sent me an email once saying to be patient that they knew there was a problem and they are working on it. It is an embarassement to myLot for my posts to rate a #2. They will fix the problem eventually. It just is not a high priority. I can understand that.

Ummm no not yet, don't worry I'll let you know when you do. Besides you are not suppose to agree with everyone or every issue. That's why they are called opinions and discussions. So don't worry about it I am sure I have done my fair share of offending people

You replied to my famous ancestor discussion and nothing you wrote was in the least offensive. You will have your up star days and down star days, so try not to let it get you down too much.

I was speaking more to the crowds in religion and politics cause I can be hotheaded when it comes to both. Thanks for the reply and the advice.

For me, as long as you don't curse others or make defamatory comments, it should be no problem. We all entitled to our own opinions. I myself have been involved in many sensitive discussions like subject on religion, races etc. Of course not all people will agree with our opinion. And that is why we call this place a discussion board :)
