Not that I'm proud we bullied him off the site,...but at least there won't be any more dumb comments and evangelical threads in the religious section.

And about 1900+ of those posts were incoherent responses that amounted to as much as me saying "neener neener".

I found him interesting, even though I didn't agree with everything he said, I just don't think you should bully people out of here.
Unless they are trolls or double accounts those annoy me. Real people with real views we need more of them here and less of the trolls. I'm really taking about the site in general now not just this one guy.

I never found any common ground with the guy, but at the end of the day all he was trying to do was save our souls. As misguided as he was, he wasn't by any means a bad guy so I'll miss him and I hope he eventually comes back.

Annoyance is directly proportional to attention span. If you pay less attention to the object that annoys you....well....nuff said.

That being said, I found the kid to be quite approachable. That's all I expect for a community like this. Considering the common banality that floods these forums from some of your accounts, I certainly wouldn't place Scotty at the top of the "undesirables" list.
Um....You've got a log in your eye.

The things he said were dumb.
Being excited about him leaving is dumb.
I will bathe gloriously in the abundant flowing of dumbness and whistle a serine tune about it.

This. The guy was, all in all, not as bad as you portray him. He did make some stupid comments, but he looked like a good guy overall.

This place is for intellectual conversation. If someone is continually doing the opposite, he gets pressured by the community. If he changes, that's great. If he leaves, fine.

I really have to say this "good guy" thing is a little exaggerated. If an atheist gives you an effort-full rebuttal and you respond by saying "let Jesus save you", it isn't just a slap in the face, but it's a disingenuous comment used to dismiss other people's beliefs while feeling sacrosanct because the words sound kind prima facie...if you don't bother to consider the sentiment behind it.

It's understandable that other Christians would find those comments kindhearted,....but you have to put it in context and in its proper perspective.

"Let Jesus save you" and "Ill Pray for you" Are basically how devout Christians say "go f*ck yoursef" And Scotty did plenty of that around the site.

So mean.

I didn't always agree with him, but I appreciated his input and thought he was a nice counterbalance.

I prefer diversity, even if it means contrast. If this website became monochrome, it'd probably die out.
