What IS a "spiritual experience", that it is either enhanced or diminished by drugs?
Or by anything else for that matter?
"I sent my soul through the invisible... " just IS.
Or it isn't.
Do you have it confused with indigestion?

I got banned for having hot monkey sex with Randi, Library Lady and LashL.

Or was that a dream?

I don't really miss the people tbh, more the conversations and intellectually stimulating debate. Most users there I enjoyed arguing with more than I enjoyed them, if that makes sense.

Still have no idea why new sign ups are closed. But I can not see myself returning there anyway.

This post belongs here.

I dont think there a case in a court for prosecuting for forum posts due to freedom of speech and ambiguity about who actually posted the message (always near impossible to prove definitively). Drug related forums have existed for years and have never even had single request for their servers by law enforcement either. The case of 'the Hive' and 'Rhodium' were decades back now, and just about one person not a whole forum, and both forums are online again in the form of fresh new forums anyway. Just saying.

I can list you over 100 forums specifically speaking about illegal drugs, how to do them, how to find them, how to use them, and they have been online for decades. No law enforcement action or scandal in ten years about them. A forum like this has absolutely nothing to worry about.

It's a good new rule as it relates to people advocating drug us that could be harmful, especially if there is no scientific evidence that the drug in question has medicinal value, someone is advocating dangerous use or the substance has been proven too addictive or damaging for serious clinical use (heroin, methamp, crack, alcohol, tobacco, etc)

You forget that Randi is a public figure and doesn't need a forum that will cause him problems. Nor does he deserve that kind of crap.

I find the idea that anything anyone posts on a forum would in any way tarnish the reputation of Randi in person pretty ludicrous.

You are obviously kidding once again, zeuzzz. You ARE kidding, aren't you? The alternative is a bit scary - that you really cannot see why controls should not be brought to bear in a place closely associated with someone whose reputation is somewhat important? Tell me you're kidding.

Richard Dawkins forum allows massive threads about psychedelics, mushrooms, medicines, pharmaceuticals, the lot. I don't see why Randi is so special, and I don't see how anyone in their right mind could ever think badly of a person/Randi who is connected to a forum for the content that someone else posts there. I doubt Randi would even know about 99.9% of the content of his forum.

You keep arguing this as if you have some kind of global point. The reality is that you didn't agree with the rules, so you ignored them. They didn't care about your opinion, so they banned you.

I'd say you lost that one champ.

Sure you do... in fact you just plagiarized... again... in another thread. Don't bother with whatever fumbling excuse you have, I don't care, and I really doubt that Pyrrho will either.

Still, at least your plagiarism is evolving.

First it was just good old fashioned stealing.
Then, you claimed that since it was from memory, it wasn't really plagiarizing.
NOW, you cite a blog in which you generously plagiarize... but hey that IS a citation, right?

:lol:

I did use content from another source in the introduction to my blog post, and in the bibliography, as I explained quite openly. The rest of the material is mine. Again, this is not the suitable thread to be bringing this up! you are trying to demean my character in numerous disparate threads where the reason for you posting these accusations belongs in them, where I have usually explained why you are wrong anyway.

I don't know what hijack you are speaking about. You have accused me incessantly of so many things in so many threads I've lost count and am starting to just ignore your accusations as a mild annoyance not worth responding to. You seem to be a lot more bothered about arguing about pointless semantic than I am.

If you have a secret crush on me and are playing hard to get just say!

That is a yes.

I'm just wondering because you seem to be having some reading comprehension issues beyond the norm for you. It occurred to me given that it's Friday, that you might be high on something. Not a value judgment by the way, I just like to know when I'm wasting my time.
