[edit/update: It seems that most of the people I was hoping to reach out to here are either incapable, or unwilling, to be so friendly and continue to talk rubbish. So, although I won’t delete this post, I certainly don’t intend to hold back on my views in the future. "Apparently, the gloves are off."]
Drama happens, and this week it’s happened in droves. Whether it’s irrelevant people like me and what I both didn’t (and did) say to respected people in the skeptic/atheist community, or more prominent people like Thunderf00t vs PZ Myers et cetera.
The simple fact is that we know who each other are because of certain common aims. We will disagree, and we probably will say things that aren’t helpful or true. I’m willing to make a commitment to 2 things:
- a) Attack the ‘argument’ and not the ‘person’ from now on.
- b) Unblock, re-friend, work with EVERYONE and ANYONE who can collectively make a positive difference.
Sounds fair to me, regardless of personal differences.
Let’s work together to tackle important issues like secularism, alt-med, psychic fraud, and real misogyny? I’m happy to do this if you are.
