Post ** STICKY ** MEMBERS QUOTES

Hopefully this thread will fill up with little gems of thought from members of the forum, and just about any type of quote on any topic is acceptable.

But, to keep each other honest, and in an attempt to maintain a reasonable standard, there are a few simple rules.




RULES:

1: You can only quote other people,.............it avoids egotism, and by and large other people are better at deciding the worth of our words, not ourselves.

2: All quotes should be LoR member originals,............don't quote people quoting other people, and please try to attribute quotes to the correct authors.

3: Keep it friendly,............no matter how wittily someone was put down, the idea of this thread is not to record ad homs, or bitterness and recrimination.





I think that should do it, but we can always modify the rules later if need be.

Hmm, this might violate rule three but it was pretty funny.

We criticize it because it, like religion in general, requires the fundamental rejection of science and/or rational thought. Replacing organized religion with New Age spiritualism is just replacing madness with a different flavor of madness.

@Nasher168

Regardless of your personal feelings about the quote, you've just immortalised an abusive post which was exactly the sort of thing I thought we should avoid,...that's why I put it in the rules.

AND.....Nasher,...do you really think that was a great quote? "STFU!" might be very emotive, but it's hardly Oscar Wilde is it?

Post Re: ** STICKY ** MEMBERS QUOTES

The writing wasn't eloquent or anything, but it said what really needed to be said in that context.
That said, I didn't really look at rule 3 of this thread when I posted it...
Happy?
