Secular Café - Powered by vBulletin will soon be made read-only, but it should live on as an archive.

Secular Cafe is now read-only, and it will soon disappear, but its archive will live on at Talk Freethought: Secular Café Archive - Index page

I recently joined agnostic.com but am bigly disappointed at how few solicitations for sex have come with it.

i'm sure liv and vm don't come around anymore because running a place like this really teaches you a lot about human behaviour, especially the shitty aspects. maybe they just hate you?

i figure some of you should be happy because the only people remaining all agree with each other. all the bragging about ignoring or the piling on has paid off. you don't see people like me around here anymore.

well except me...i'm a people like me. and i love you guys for allowing me to hate you.

that Cloaca forum was a bad move. consider that the most vibrant and interesting forum in this place nowadays is one that only members can see.

Speak for yourself.

I do think the decline of this forum is sad. I wish it could be turned around. But when the few remaining posters do little but idiotically post Twi**er screen grabs, I guess we're done here. :sadcheer:

the decline of all forums is sad. especially forums like this. i have a forum that is philosophically similar to this. internet forums, especially broad topic, tolerant forums like this one, are places we could learn to tolerate and learn to understand our differences better. a place to put the shoe on the other foot.

but the thing that could improve human nature was a victim to that very thing and when easy social platforms like facebook came along things changed. you don't have to work at debate and questioning when you can simply delete all opinions that you don't like. fb is like the ignore option on speed. it plays on our fears and laziness.

So...I can report that what calls itself Talk Freethought is a fraud.

I got a chance to look at their 'moderation team'. Holy guacamole. They have seven administrators and eleven....count 'em, eleven (11) 'super moderators'.

Yes, they 'edit' posts they don't like...if you don't follow the TOU. I want to ask you to picture jackboots and clicking heels, but that would be hyperbole and a half. Instead, I think the best description is Heathen Hangout under Gurdur's administration, or IIDB as it was hurtling towards its inevitable demise. The censorship is strong. The asshat cliques are coalescing.

Talk Freethought is not a freethought site. Not when the owner scoffs and tells you that you have the right to think anything you want, but you can only express what they will allow you, it is NOT a freethinker site. It's just more wannabee thinkers without the freedom to speak, much less think. The leadership is hypocritical.

I was really amused by their policy of not allowing any open criticism of the board's administration, policy, or moderation. To discuss any proposed criticism of board policy or staff action, members are required to go to a 'private feedback' forum where the complainant can post their concern away from prying eyes and ears of everybody except the board authoritarians. Sweet, huh?

So, if you are in to intellectual bondage and intellectual circle jerks, TF is the place for you. If you're an actual freethinker, stay the fuck away. You will be sorely disappointed.

Taking a quick look, I see that Loren Pechtel is a moderator. I'm going to register there, right after I give myself this Tabasco sauce enema.

I admit, I was lured there by the presence of Jobar, who I think is damned decent. But, hey, he's only one of seven administrators. Good people get dragged down by bad experiences...and bad company.

Hey...I didn't even see any ordinary moderators. They all seemed to be 'super moderators'. I don't know if this means that they are all caped crusaders with spandex costumes, or what. They also had 'administrators' and I never got a clear idea of the line of demarcation between the two labelled categories.

It's like the difference between Goofy and Pluto: both are dogs, but one can just about talk and so has to wear pants - it would be unseemly to have a naked talking dog.

I suspect that if the core here now keeps this alive, that a fair number will come floating back. F******k is just fucking insipid and most locales are just overloaded with advertising and spam. New folks might find their way here, too. Particularly if those of you who frequent other boards occasionally proffer an invitation, y'know, with an address, to drop by here and chat up the natives.

A rare one might decide to stay.

Caveat....

It seems that if you invited a noob, it might be advised to note that the doorguard is either loaded or asleep, and processing new posters is a haphazard crap shoot. You might want to suggest that if they are really interested, and cannot seem to break the impression of being spamlike and allowed entrance, to check back with you...the inviter.

Y'know....You may need to know the right people to get in to this place....

As it is, you almost need a sponsor to get in, like a Masonic Lodge.

Yes, if anyone here wants to invite someone, you can let me know their username or email address by PM and I'll let them in. (Probably those other guys would too, but I don't want to volunteer anyone.)

It would be cool if we could have some kind of text field on the signup page or whatever where unaffiliated types could make their case that they're not spammers, but we don't, so.

I'm also open to such PMs. Otherwise spammy looking usernames and/or email addresses are at great risk of being deleted along with the other 20 actual spammers.

We should get vm to sort that out.
