Well, no doubt some new person would make a thank you thread for that. :P

I've gone through and locked all the thank you and all of the request threads.  We don't like either. :P

I would like to thank the creators who made the stuff(mwoah, some of it is pretty nice, you know, so thanks). I would like to thank Pescado for the idea and his braveness(you're a lion, let me hear you roar). And I would like to thank all the peeps who actually bought this pay stuff and shared them with us. And I would like to thank the people who worked hard to get these files available for us. And I would like to thank the nice people here, for your sense of humour. And EA games. And my dog. Mwuah, thank you, thank you everyone.  :D

ok. Before you poke me with a stick, this was just a joke...

Really...

So thank you!!! you made me hogshit happy.

Hi.  I just found this, via other pirates.  

I think it's important to encourage and thank creators for their work.  I think it's important to thank people in the world for taking a stand.  I think that what is being done here (including the whole 'in your face' attitude) is a Very Good Thing.  

I remember getting my sims game on release day.  I remember reading the EULA because there was a bunch of internet hullabaloo about it.  I remember being insanely joyous because that EULA pretty much said that everything creators make for this game will be free because they say so.  I remember being double insane with glee when I realised that all CC used in building and decorating a lot would be included with that lots package, because that's the way it was written.

I was very very very very sad when paysites stayed.

And not just because I'm broke and the prices these people ask for their items is fucking insane if all that money is for is to keep their website running.  People make money off this shit to supliment their lifestyle, and turn around and deny it.  I wouldn't be so ... irritated by it if they just fessed up and told the truth.

And then there are places like TSR.  Taking the communities work and putting it up for sale, when the most a creator is going to get is a few free membership days, and that's only if they pump things out on a steady and regular basis.  They have thousands of members, they boast being the largest sim community, and there is no way in fuck all that those monthly donation fees are just enough to cover running costs.  Someone is sitting fat and happy on a wad of cash.  It's a hell of a racket.

So really, thank you guys.  Thank you for allowing me to be a pirate.  There's a good deal of it that is principle for me.

I won't feel right if I don't contribute my own 'thank you' to this thread, so..

Thanks. Really.

I'm highly opposed to paysites and the fact that it seems to be more about greed than this 'it's for bandwidth' excuse.

I need to thank everyone who made me laugh so hard today. Your posts are so hilarious.

Thank you to everyone who made this site possible. I love it. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

I was actually considering making a "donation" at PeggySims2 and coming here totally made me not do it. I can't believe how greedy these people are. Sharing personal information? WTF.

Argh, internet drama!

Post by: Captain Feathersword on 2006 November 16, 13:25:25
I just thought I should post before I grab my share of the booty. :D
Yes I am known on one of the sites you love to hate.
No this is not my real name.
No I have never paid for CC and never intended to.
I agree that Sims CC does not qualify for all the accusations of "THEIF" that seem to be everywhere.
I really hope I can spell it properly when I need to. Seeing things the wrong way so many times can really mess with your head.
I have only just discovered this place, but I haven't done much reading at MATY until recently and I've only posted once. All the carry on about sharing PayPal info has got me reading a lot and I stumbled across a mention of this site. No surprise really as I've always been a bit scared to get involved at MATY. I would definitely be locked up in RL as I can say some pretty dumb things at times. I will probably stick to being a lurker for a while yet, although it isn't quite as intolerant here.
Don't get me wrong, I can do intolerant too, and do everyday. Stupid people are my major prejudice in life. I just sometimes end up on the wrong end being intoleranted at. You know the words.

On topic: Oh yeah Thank-you.

Travelled down the road and back again.

Invited everyone you knew-,
You would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say,
Thank you for being a friend-.

You need more practise.  That was horrible.

Although I'm not sure why that would be a boast-worthy skill, being able to convincingly mock netspeak.

Thanks, this is great! Baaah baaah!

I'm only kidding, I know Pescado has mentioned that positive feedback serves little to help one make improvements, so I'll think of something negative (or at least constructive) to say.

Ehm...er....well I can't find anything negative to say actually.

So let me thank you for taking such a firm stand against those paysites and their ill-got-monetary-gains, and for making those "donation" items available to those of us in the SIMS 2 community who live in fear of our personal information being swapped freely amongst paysite owners.

Oh yes, I must say you are rather sweet and cuddly group of pirates as well.  Why?  Well I've heard no mention of the Cat-O-Nine tails (captain's daughter), the heave to, kielhalen(keelhauling?), or of being marooned on a sandbar with little if any provisions.

Keep up the good work maties, or shall I say MATYs!

Isn't walking the plank an invention of Hollywood and/or Pop Culture pirates though?  Wouldn't a heave- to into shark infested water after being dragged against the barnacles along the ship's keel beneath the pirate ship be a more fitting fate for those paysite owners?

Instead of thanking Pes and company for the booty, which I really don't care that much about, I would rather thank them for allowing what is truly a medium for free speech. I was recently banned from a forum (non-sims-related) simply for stating a differing opinion (politely, I might add). Such an unfortunate occurance has made me appreciate the fine folks at MATY and PMBD even more than I already did. I do not 'donate' to paysites as a matter of general principle, even though I could easily afford to do so. Thus, I consider PMBD an honourable cause to support. Thanks, guys!

Ach, I'm sorry if I gave anyone cavities with my sickly sweet post.

I avoided this thread like the plague, but my stance is pretty much this. I get banned from forums on a fairly regular basis for speaking my mind, and it's nice to have a place to vent about sims-related crap. I'd gotten so tired of playing nice.

I am so tired seeing all of these thank you threads.  Seriously, stop making them before I start deleting every last single one of them.

If you feel you really must say thank you, please do so in this thread.


Ok. I will.

I am what one may consider a moderate pirate. :) I do believe there are sites out there that genuinely charge mainly for bandwidth. ("Mainly" is the operative word here.) There is one site I use a lot that simply requested $2.00 US IF users can afford it, and had a nifty little thank-you gift for those who did. This was $2.00 for no fewer than six MONTHS. More, I believe. NOT $2.00 a month or $2.00 a download. No "mesh" games or pity tactics. No "if you share the thank-you gift, you are a criminal". I ponied up the money.

Problem is, I didn't realize how very FEW sites fit into this category. How many cut corners and overcharge. (I learned that the hard way with one service, unfortunately.) How the term "bandwidth" seems to be up for interpretation. How many creators piss away the money and don't stand behind their product. How crappy a lot of these gifts are. I originally grinned with glee when I saw the booty, but much to my surprise, there weren't many files I really wanted. All that glitters is not gold and all that. Thank you to those who took the time to organize the booty.

This board, along with Better Sims, is letting me see the good, the bad and the ugly about paysites .... mostly the bad and the ugly. Being on a super-tight budget makes me picky about giving money to paysites in the first place; this board and my bad experience with a download has made me a LOT more reluctant to give cash to ANY paysite.

So ... thanks for all the work involved in putting this together!

Thank you for this site.  I read through the forums a bit today and realized that my own policies on redistribution were a bit strict, so I changed them...  Today...  I made a special effort.

So, this site and this forum have reached out and touched one more creator.  Long live free shit, with no strings attached.

Pescado, i have never believed in such things as gods... but you have changed my mind. My altar to you is already in my closet. Scared yet?


I do not know about JM, but I am plenty scared. If he offers you Kool Aid, tell him you're not thirsty.

for making the shit previously only available on a pay basis.....thankyou. nice to know i have the choice whether to have any of it or not without thinking about my bank balance  (or lack of it)

trouble is i looked at quite a bit of it yesterday and realised most of it was crap i wouldn't have downloaded even if it were free in the first place

this site however is brilliant and provided me with many hours of amusement and mirth, which after the day i had at work was most welcome... i thankyou all

Thank you for the booty that my ex-boyfried was soon going to find out *I* was spending all *HIS* money on.

Thank you for destroying paysites, because they piss me off. And my 'Destroy, Burn, Pilage' list is too long already.

Thank you for giving me a place where I can spill out words that would kill BABY FAIRIES. I shed a single tear, and say "Finally, home..."

You guys are AWESOME. I owe you my first-born son.

I think I love you guys. After being away from the Sims community for a long, long time and seeing this money-making scene explode makes me sad. This community was borne of people sharing their creations for fun, not profit. When I see new sites pop up with 'V.I.P' sections or as out-and-out subsciption sites selling utter shite, it makes my blood boil.
Good on you guys, I hope the good ship PMBD stays afloat for a long time. :wink:

Many thanks for the heaps of CC I have downloaded (and then mostly deleted, for truly much of it is crap) from your booty coffers. I have sent a token of my appreciation to the dread pirate Bluesoup so that she can obtain more crap for me to download and then delete in how-dare-someone-put-this-shit-up-for-money???? dismay. The download/disgust/delete cycle is practically a whole new game!

As for the few things I have found here that I love and use, my gratitude is of another magnitude entirely, though I assure you my glee in rejecting unworthy pay files is quite genuine.

I completely agree with nixy.  I, too, found myself downloading like a fool, so excited that I finally got some of this great pay content.  Then, go into my game and find out that it truly is crap.  I deleted a great deal of stuff.
I am, however, eternally grateful for the stuff that is good and for this site for sharing with us all.

Oh my god! Finally registered myself.

I have spent WAY too much money on Sim donationitems (shame on me!), but thanks to the "The Site That Must Not Be Named" that's over!
I finally downloaded all the things I wanted, but wouldn't want to pay for.
Especially Reflexsims & Rosesims. HAH!

I'm sick of all those creators begging us for money, while they steal each others meshes and create nothing really fancy or original.
My game is overloaded with donationstuff now and I'm looking forward to the new updates.

Thanks mateys! Arrrr! Love you!

I'd like to say thanks for this site and sorry if my niceness in my last post was apparently offensive. I was raised that you should be respectful of people unless they prove they are not worthy of your respect, and although it pisses off other site creators I greatly respect this site. Even though the people here do not make the items they go through a great deal of trouble rezipping and putting up all of these files. I know that and I appreciate all the time and effort that goes into making this site work. I love the stuff here and I have an extremely limited income due to many disabilities, so if this site did not exist I would have no way to get this great items. So thanks to everyone who pays for these and then spends all day zipping them up for us.

P.S thanks so much for adding new stuff from Raon I really love Male hair 9 it has that awesome Anime look.

Thanks for the booty in general, and amileegirl's Peggy Hair reviews was also very helpful. Also, if anyone is interested, images of some of the issues mentioned in that thread are shown here: http://www.bettersimsbureau.com/pictures.html

If you weren't sure what a gap looks like (I wasn't), this reveals the gory truth in full colour. The horror, the horror, pass the rum.

Overall this site is a very worthy project, helpful to old and new Sims(2) people, and full of people who make me have to keep Lysol Wipes near my laptop to wipe up sportle-induced gigglespurts. Well, okay, it only happened like that once. But, hey, I'm not easily amused and can normally contain my glee at finely-tuned wit and spite, so getting even one genuine spit-take out of me is pretty darn good. It's worth having the Wipes nearby in case of future beverage=meets-monitor moments.

Also, I grew up in Savannah, mentioned in Treasure Island and home of the world famous Pirate's House (with shanghai tunnels and cranky, drunken, syphilitic pirate ghosts still present on premises scaring the peanuts out of the staff on a regular basis).

Nouk posted the same guidelines that you follow on her site. I felt like a dumb idiot after two donations to rose and two to peggy (honestly, you can't tell me peggysims is just a hobby site!) - a few days later I discovered the booty
I was shocked at first, but I couldn't help downloading it  :roll:

honestly, there was only one donation I didn't regret - I paid for the skintones on Rensim ... the others (rose, peggy) were just a waist of money

Yes, I am thankful i found this place.

It let me confirm what I'd believed all along, that the few pay items I almost considered getting [ if they were ever free ], weren't worth my space.

And I've gotten lots of rum. :D

Thank you for making this site.  Seriously.  Just made my day when I saw this site.

I landed upon this site from http://digitalperversion.net/ today and I have to say that I am glad I did.

Paysites.....where's a cannon when you need them to destroy them?  I didn't know there was THAT many that forced everyone to "donate" to them to get a "donation" download.  

Hooray for filesharing :P

Just today i found out about this place, by accident, i bumped on Penny's signature on S2C... I would like to thank the creator of this site SO much because some of the stuff i really liked on some sites, and i was ready to subscribe, but paypal and other internet banks don't support my country, so thank you so much for allowing me, the regular, mortal sim fan have this stuff.  :D

Oh and a big chunky thank you to people that donate files to you, obviously all this wouldn't have happened if someone didnt take money from their own pockets and buy this stuff so they can share it. :p

i would like to say thank you for the prompt updating - i am especially impressed by the Raon sims updates - the past few, by the time i knew there was one, it was up in the booty. Many heartfelt thanks to whoever is shelling out the cash for them. (And of course hec, gwen, etc for actually putting it in the booty, and keeping it organized.)

Rum all around! Coconut rum - it tastes better. ;)

I found this site earlier today, and I just HAD to thank you (everyone) for everything you're doing here.  I've struggled against donating to paysites for almost a year now.  Recently enough, I was trying to first convince myself that it wasn't too bad to pay TSR about ten dollars for two months of subscriptions, that it was even sort of reasonable.  I was working on an argument to convince my Mom (who holds the funds of the family) that it was a worthy investment.  And that was just for TSR, I still had to come up with arguments for Peggy, Rose, and RaonJena.  

So thank you.  You've saved me money, and arguing, and I'm in love with your site.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I just wanted to thank everyone who had something to do with this site.  I don't know all of your names but you know who you are.

I think what you're doing is great work and even though I've been back and forth with the 'Two wrongs don't make a right' ideal, after reading your mission statement and the reasons behind the madness, I have come to realize that EA hasn't done anything about it (and probably won't) so it's up to us, The Community, to take matters into our own hands because we won't put up with this shit anymore.

I wholeheartedly agree with all of your points because I too have suffered.  Although I have never actually paid for any CC or made a subscription on a paysite I have wanted to (pined away actually) for the longest while, especially when I saw Peggy's creations, but at the time, Paypal did not support my country so I had to do without, and was forced to drool all over my keyboard at content I could never have.

Thank God for that.

Now I know better and I want to thank you all for opening my eyes, educating me and saving my money (since Paypal does accept my country now [about time]).

This is incredible, I stumbed upon this site yesterday. I stayed up til 2 in the morning downloading all those darn meshes I could never have before... just awesome.

In my long history of playing the sims with custom content, I have had an uncountable amount of nightmares of trying to get free content and recolors, but finding more and more are now linked to pay meshes.

So, this is the mesh hunter saying thank you much and let me know if I can help out the site in any way. I work in R&D at a sofware company and play the Sims 2 in my free time--if I am not busy finding content and downloading it from modthesims2.com etc. I promise to not pay for TSR anymore unless it's to help the cause!

So I'm an ex-donator to several pay sites, but no more.  I never subbed to the evil empire that is TSR, thank god, but my friend did, and I'm glad I've shown her the light as well.

Funny, now that I know about the booty, I really don't want anything from it.  There are so many good, free creators out there (NOUK!!!) that I don't even want the pay stuff anymore, no matter how nice it is.

All I must say, is thank god I followed a link from the great paysite debate thread on s2c, because I'm glad to find others are ready to stand up for what is right and fair when EA just sits on their thumbs, probably taking bets on the paysite war.


Title: Re: OFFICIAL THANK YOU THREAD
Post by: tgriffy on 2007 September 02, 08:46:02
Sarafina, I think I know how you feel.  I've only paid for a few things here and there for The Sims 2.  There were some things I just drooled over, but couldn't afford it or didn't want to pay for a subscription just to get one lousy file.  Then I discovered the booty, but at this point I haven't actually downloaded anything from it.  It just doesn't seem worth drooling over anymore.  

Or maybe my play style just changed and I simply don't need that stuff anymore.  Who knows?

You need to call your Board of Health.  Mold kills, don't matter if you are allergic or not.  We had a place fill up with mold, the board of health told me to get out right away.  This is a serious health threat to you and yours.  Hope it gets taken care of soon

Okay, just going to make it quick.  Been lurking long time, finally got my courage together today to join the scary pirates (though I have always been one of you at heart) so thank you to all of you for what you do here.  Thanks Pescado for making a place for everyone and for your awesome hacks.  I have spent too much in the past paying for what should be free (and been screwed too many times by finding out after spending the money that the files are crap).  Lesson learned.  Pass the rum.  I've got cookies.   :D

*lurk mode off*

Many thanks to all for the wonderful service you provide here.

Thanks also for the information/advice alot of you share in your posts (in between the awesome kitty macros). By reading the posts regarding what makes cc good vs bad, I have learned much about the "why" certain cc looks bad in game. Before I would simply delete the stuff only to realize I was continuing to grab the same sort of crap (because it was a pretty pretty picture :roll: ). Now though, when looking for cc, I am more aware of the quality creators/creations rather than letting the pretty pictures and sparklies blind me.

Thanks again!


Title: Re: OFFICIAL THANK YOU THREAD
Post by: dasha on 2007 October 04, 21:29:38
Aside from the "ditto what everyone said" thing, I'll add that in days long past, I paid for subscriptions to a couple of paysites before I knew better (I'm talking, pre-University days, so it was eons in Internet years), and while the prices were low, I learned pretty quickly that they weren't worth it.

Fast forward to a few months ago, when the computer I've had for six years finally went to Data Heaven, taking with it all that CC I paid for, plus all the free stuff I'd found after I'd grown older and wiser in the ways of custom content. I missed some of the stuff I'd paid for back in the day, but not enough to want to subscribe all over again, particularly after begging, borrowing and stealing to get a new computer. And so, I grumbled.

I had been following the paysite debates over at MTS2 in lurk-mode, but when I got my new computer, all the threads had been closed, and nobody said nothin' about nothin' anymore, as far as I could see. I had hoped to actually contribute to the venture before the Great Computer Collapse, but nothing was being said about it when I got back online. So, I sighed.

And then some wonderful soul (I forget who) posted a link to this site at MTS2 when someone else asked for a mesh from some pay site or other, and behold, the pretty CC that I missed so badly was here, too, along with some truly hideous CC I'm glad I never saw before.

So bless all o' yer scurvy little hearts. You probably saved my marriage, because my husband was getting sick of hearing me rant about how uncool it was to have to pay for stuff that should have been free. And now, enough of this rambling, where do I get fitted for a peg leg on this here ship?

Post by: I Lost My Eyepatch on 2007 October 28, 22:13:01
Thanks! I found this site a few days ago, and dowloaded a bunch of goodies while reading about all of the behind-the-scenes crap I never knew was going on.

I'm currently jobless (tried applying to a few places for that 'crappy first job', but so far things haven't worked out thanks to my having no job experience.. I can't decide whether that's ironic or just moronic..) with a brother who's going through college ATM (and the possibility of myself not being able to afford going at all..), and so I'm basically a pathetic deadbeat at the moment with little to do aside from playing the Sims and feeling like a moocher. >_>

Any pay stuff I've been able to 'afford' has been what I can beg my mom to let me get, which has been a month's subscription to peggy and raonsims, one time each over the past year or so.. Anyhoo. I've always wanted the newer peggy and rose hairs, but I felt bad enough asking for the things I already have, so I decided I'd just have to be happy with what I've got.

Then I was looking through the forums at (insert free site who's name I will not reveal because I don't want to be a snitch) to see if they had any plans to do some of their clothing on BB meshes, and I randomly found a link here.

Needless to say, I was surprised and somewhat skeptical that such a place could exist! After I realized it wasn't just a crazy dream, I started to feel a little dirty.. But after my internal ethical dilemma, I decided to follow my gut. Sorry paysite people! I'm sure the money you're getting from the original PMBD folks who subscribe to upload is more than enough to pay for your bandwidth anyway..

So, to make a long story short (too late!), thanks for letting people without income access the pretty.

And i suggest if you MUST introduce yourself do it here: http://phorum.mustnotbenamed.com/viewtopic.php?t=1302

(dont feel bad or sorry for the paysites!! everyone should share)

hya...not sure if you are the evil deviants who make my sim playing a lot better but if you are (I followed a link from the podium) then bare that butt and let me smoooch it.
And i am not gay (not that there is anything wrong with it). I'm actually kind of new to sims 2 (I had all of sims 1 ep). I thought sims 2 was basically just a posh version of sims 1 so i never bothered to buy it...then saw a friend with the game and had to get it.
without the hacks and mods though this game would be frustrating as i found that hunger, energy etc just went down too fast and a sim getting up at six was napping by 2pm or in bed for the night by 6pm.
So i really dont know if i am thanking the right people or not but you know so what lolololol

Smile

nice to be here.
Oh and did you hear about the crazy religious guys just started bashing sim mods like the whoohoo? I'll see if i can find a link. this is just last couple of days that it happened. I mouthed off to them lol then i went back to playing sims.

I am so tired seeing all of these thank you threads.  Seriously, stop making them before I start deleting every last single one of them.

If you feel you really must say thank you, please do so in this thread.



Ouch
people are grateful...try to show a little class when acknowledging or you are as bad as all the elitist types that make people pay for this shite.
i dont want to offend anyone but had i read that post first i would have thought screw this. this numpty bint is just too miserable.

think about it....no one owes anyone anything. if you pull some downloads and make the free wonderful but dont start getting a big head over it...because that suxks too.

Thanks a lot, folks. I'm sure it's hard work subbing and then hosting all of the files here. I appreciate your hard work and dedication. During TS1 days, I once subbed to TSR. The massive confusion that is TSR makes finding something you want an hours-long process. That was a short sub for me. And I'll never subscribe anywhere else again. Muchas gracias!

I dont understand why bluesoup is so nasty to people who just want to show how grateful they are to the booty, whats so wrong with that?

I read the FAQ (while drinking rum) it was very funny.    The people on this site are such a contradiction, much of the FAQ is sensible nd then there is the rest.  Does it really matter if someone new gets it wrong, does it warrant such backlash, while I agree with your policy. I'm not sure I agee with your response.  Do you think its funny to have a go at people whose first language is'nt Englsh or who are educationally challenged?

However, I have enjoyed reading the different forums.  I do think pay sites should be destroyed but maybe you could be less virulant in your response (not including trolls). I came across this site from Numenor I visited his site and he had a page on the war and so I found this site. I was so pleased to be able to get CC that I didnt have the money to pay for.  But you could be kinder to us newbies

Someone said they didn't like thank you's but I'm thanking you anyway.  For years during the Sims 1 stage, I felt it was wrong to 'take' the pay creations.  I didn't like the paysites from the very start but I respected the paysite creators' wishes.  But after 6 years or so of Simness I got tired of the high faluting attitude of the paysites and I have come here, bowed down, and taken the booty.  Once you give in, there's no going back.  Yay!!!

Now back to downloading some booty while I wait for my insomnia to go away...

Sadly, you'll find most of it is pure crap-and-gaps and then you'll purge those files, then you'll rant because people actually paid for that junk, then you'll be glad you didn't. Then, you will just bitch about anyone selling files. It's like the stages of grief....but stages of downloading booty. We all go through it.

Sadly, you'll find most of it is pure crap-and-gaps and then you'll purge those files, then you'll rant because people actually paid for that junk, then you'll be glad you didn't. Then, you will just bitch about anyone selling files. It's like the stages of grief....but stages of downloading booty. We all go through it.

I pretty much went through those stages. I wasted hours downloading those fantabulous ;) Peggy hairs on my dial up connection only to discover the horrors of Head Gap! :o Then I discovered all of the awesome free (and legal) creators

I got a few peggy hairs, the aquarium set from Windkeeper over on TSR, loaded my game, looked it all over and went 'delete'  Considering I'm ultra picky even on free stuff, I didn't see any reason to keep the crappy paystuff.

Where I'm from it means to stab someone in the back with a crudely made blade (also called a "shank" and generally only in prison) or to betray someone in some dreadful fashion (as in "being stabbed in the back"). If nothing else, either definition certainly raises a host of intriguing and disturbing questions about Melissa :D.

Over here, the knife thing, or to betray them, is to shaft them. Course, that also means shag them. It gets confusing unless you've lived here all of your life  :D

Heh, we use both those meanings as well for "shaft" (although the sexual meaning is certainly less common, as is the second meaning I gave for "shank"). "Shaft" has another slang meaning as well around these parts (well, okay, it has several) in relation to being forced to pick up or do some unpleasant activity that no one else wanted (e.g. Employee A: "Fred had to work the graveyard shift all weekend" Employee B: "Oh, too bad. He totally got shafted"). It's somewhat connected to the betrayal meaning, but can also be used when no one is at fault and the bad thing is merely due to a sequence of events.

lol Well last time I checked we are pirates; and it was meant to be funny! So maybe you should check on "Lightning up" or "Relaxing"; before going into the dictionary and posting the meaning without taking in consideration of the fact that someone could just be simply posting a "Thank you" in a manner which they saw no harm doing! You know what? Maybe it is me who should relax and take in consideration the fact that you both have very well taken the consideration that I meant no harm and you are trying to break the ice with me(I am blushing with embarrassment); and if you got hurt over the fact that someone was trying to break the ice and say "Thank you" in their own way; let me apologize for my poor choice of words and humor. I  ensure you that my intention was not to offend or "stab anyone in the back"! I did not join this forum to betray or hurt anyone; I was merely trying to be funny with my comment.  Again; I apologize for my poor choice of words and humor. I will make sure to TRY not to use what I think is humor in any post I make again. I will be straight forward and blunt with my posts or comments in the future. Where I am from is no concern to you.....unless you want to talk? /wink  :-*   <------was meant to be funny  ;D   I am from a place called America, I am sure you can tell by my poor writing skills and my ignorance that most Americans are proud of; and who is to blame "me?"

I sometimes use "shanksyoushanksyoushanksyou" when I feel, the person needs to be revered for their generosity. It's incredibly dated, back when people bowed and shuffled their thanks as they walked backwards. God I was so weird in University, I made the stupidest shit up.

Shank? Isn't that Lamb? And as for stabbing...

Melissa. Excuse me? I am an American and in no way do I have poor writing skills that I am proud of. I post very clearly and succinctly and am damn happy with it. Although, I am known to sink to lolcat-ese or just talk like plain people. I didn't get most of my education at  school, my parents taught me at home quite a bit about how to use words. So, relax, take a weight off, have some bon bons and Midol, they come in handy when troll spawning time draws nigh.

Yep, I was just teasing too (and like Millie, there would be no question if I wasn't). Besides, isn't it sort of fun to be thought of as a shiv wielding escaped convict who also likes to help people, uh, "relax" in the off hours? ;)

Shank? Isn't that Lamb?

Yep, that too. I love the English language; I mean why use several different words when you can just use one to mean 1,000 unrelated things? :D

:D Paden<3 your funny!

Where are you getting this information, Melissa? While this may (although it would be shockingly unlikely) be true, if you haven't got a good standard set up for judging the "evidence" to support it, you're just misinforming others (and yourself). I'd recommend that you give a strong look at the sources that are providing the information to you; do they have a goal they are trying to push? What sources are they citing? Are they citing the information (e.g. studies, essays, articles, etc.) correctly? Are the sources they are using unbiased? Are they unbiased? What methodology have they set up to test the idea/data? Have you read/viewed/listened to the studies/sources they use as the basis for their reports? Are they thorough? Careful? What criticisms have been levelled at the idea and "evidence"? How have they responded? Have the tests been repeated? Are the results the same as the first time the test was run? How willing are you to accept that you may be wrong, and may only be believing in something because it tweaks your own interest or suspicions? 

Frankly, I could add about a billion more questions to the list, and (at least for me) being unwilling to do the work to get to the bottom of the story and relying only on the info that appeals to you or that a biased source gives out reeks of intellectual laziness.

Sorry Mellissa, I was going to join in on the conversation however I was blinded by the sprinkles throughout your post. Also, being American, I find your stereotype of Americans badly. U HAS OFF-ENDED ME!!

Seriously, though. Posts, in my opinion, don't need to be rainbows. If you're proud of poor grammar, that's fine, but please don't try to push it on the rest of us.


Edit: I was totally going to edit my own grammar typo, but left it in - why not?  ;)

 I am sure the reader will notice the word "my" is in bold. I thought it to be fitting so I  can clear this as "my" opinions or views and to make sure there is no misinterpretation on the readers part in reading this.

So, when you point your finger at me; how many are pointing back at you?  Let me again apologize for "my" poor choice of words and say I am sorry for your misunderstanding of "My outlook on over the counter drugs/prescription drugs and eating habits ."   As well as say I will edit what I said so that you can better understand me "I never take those poison pills and eat that kind of junk it tends to fog "my" mind and effect the way "my" mind and body function; as well as add a couple of pounds and promote cancer in my opinion."  Now if that does not clarify "my" opinion and views and you still want to argue over what I wrote and have questions on the facts and data to what I stated as "my" personal decisions in life; I can only say to you that you obviously have questions in life that need to be answered and Frankly I don't give a rats ass and suggest you go looking for them yourself? Because to me you "reek of intellectual laziness!  I am not trying to impose "my" opinions or views on anyone here. Except when anyone gives me advice that they themselves should take into practice.

        I find this very hard to talk to a computer and show emotion and personality unless you are a writer and have a way with words; in "my" opinion. I have apologized so many times and right now I am at the brink of saying "F IT" let them believe what they want!  I didn't come to this forum to start a fight. I apologized and reworded my statements and frankly I am not surprised to see how many people are picking apart everything that I have written. Now we all do not know each other and when I state "my" opinions and thoughts I am just trying in "my" way use humor or show a little bit about me. What you take from it is on you and how you feel about me is your judgments. I do recognize I am new here and that some of you are just joking around and I do appreciate it. But there are some it seem that they want to throw around their intellectual words or flex their brain around as though they are on the beach showing off their muscles like a meat head on steroids.
 When in all honesty it just goes to show their insecurities in "my" opinion(also since when did noob's opinions matter?). I don't appreciate insults as well as the next person but new or not I am too out spoken to just shut up and let someone keep making up some random argument over their interpretation of what I said. Like I have said before I have apologized about "my" humor and wording I have used and if those apologize are not enough then there is no hope for me!  (OK, I am done with rainbows I am sorry for offending anyone. As well as the smiley faces.)   I will also not change who I am and should expect the same from all of you!   Like I said before I love it here and I Love all the people even the ones who hate me. <3

Post by: mando on 2008 September 26, 06:32:42
This is true. I do find your position highly insecure.

Opinions are fine; however, when you make a blanket statement relating to physical/testable/real world subjects you should expect to be called on it and to prove your position. If you aren't comfortable defending a position that you yourself brought into discussion then you shouldn't have brought it up in the first place.

Perhaps my opinion that providing an argument without any backing automatically equalling intellectual laziness is unfair, as I didn't give you time to formulate a proper response to my questions. On the other hand, you instead chose to defend your argument with a host of ad hominem attacks rather than finding backing for your earlier statements. Maybe you aren't used to conversations/arguments that run this way, I don't know; but for me I find talk like this engaging and interesting and I hope to get you to want to prove your statements in a definitive, evidence (non logical fallacy) based way. If it's something you feel passionate about and feel is important to your personal intellectual/belief system you should want to be challenged on it and be prepared to defend it ( and no, I don't consider "because I think so!" or "You're a jerk!" appropriate defenses).

Lots of americans in this forum, and I'll say that any of my errors are from spending a good bit of my formative years around native german speakers, speaking english.

So, sometimes, I'll use a phrase a little wrong.  But, honestly, I don't see a point in being proud of bad grammer.  As for midol adding weight?  Huh, what?  The Pill, I'll grant you, still struggling to lose the 75 pounds I added the last time I took -those-.  But Midol is just to aleve pain and discomfort, it beats being bent over double for a week, trust me.

You are such a stupid little bitch.

Christ, who in the fucking hell do you think you are?! Some spaychul snowflake that's allowed to do just what she wants cause she's spaychul? I don't think so. In case it's escaped your notice, honey, snowflakes melt when the heat touches them, and yeah the heat is on. What does that tell you?

Also, you have royal entitlement issues. You don't come onto a board like this and start to shit like a troll with the Hershey squirts and expect to get away with it. Oh, fuck no. You read the rules, you follow the rules, and you don't act like you have a sunbeam shining out of your ass. And what happened to your hippity-hoppity New Age love and kisses for all and blessed be attitude? I know where it went, the same place it goes for every New Ager that doesn't have shit all go their way! Right into the shitter where it belongs! I know Wiccans and pagans that keep such greetings for those that they know are of like mind and belief because for them it's a personal thing! The only thing personal with you is your damn body odor!

You, madame, are a twat with the sense that the Good gave a spider on crack cocaine. Threatening to withhold money that could pay for Booty files because we speak our opinions? Why not threaten to just cancel our birthdays or take away our right to pay taxes, it's gonna have about the same effect: We're all gonna laugh at you! Just like Adam Sandler puts it, we're all gonna laugh at you! And point! Yeah, that's right, douche bag, we're gonna point and laugh at you and think that you didn't grow up with much sense beyond that which makes a rat come in out of the rain, and maybe not even THAT much!!

I happen to like this community just the way it is, so quit acting like we need to change a fucking thing for a speshul snowflayke like yourself.

ETA: Why the fuck would we care if you refuse to donate to the booty? I'm sure the anonymous donating pirates have that taken care of. Besides, someone that explicitly states their intent to donate to the booty (where there are paysite spies!) is a special kind of stupid.

Aww, poor baby. 

We're being fucking assholes as you put it, because we have to keep dealing with twits like you. 


And why should we make it easier for you or any other newbie?  No one held a gun to your head and forced you to come here, you did that of your own free will.  You barged in, claiming you wanted to fit in, but what you really wanted was for us to coo over you, and tell you how awesome and special you are.  Well, guess what? This forum wasn't set up to cater to you, little snowflake.  Welcome to the real world.  You go barging into new places and start babbling without knowing the rules and you get hurt. 

If you had really wanted to fit in, you would have lurked moar.  A lot more.   A whole lot more.  You would have found the FAQ, read it, and taken it to heart.  You would not have been trying to answer to every single thread you could find chirping happily and telling us all "Blessed Be."   Yes, I know, you're all happy about your religious beliefs and I'm very happy for you, however, there is a time and a place for everything.  I am a Christian myself, but I don't end every post I make with, "And may the power of our lord and savior, Jesus Christ, be and abide with you all, now and forever, amen."  Or even "God bless you all."     Because that would be inappropriate.  If I want to have God bless people, I will go to a Christian forum. 

So, why don't you quit your little temper tantrum, take the twist out of your knickers, and grow up.  One good thing about this forum is that if you decide to grow up and start acting more like a human being than a special little snowflake, you'll be forgiven.  If you want to continue the temper tantrum, then  I advise you to get out.  Not that it isn't funny as hell to watch you stamp your special little feet, but I would imagine you'll grow tired of being the butt of our jokes after awhile.

meanie: heheh ;D thanks for the laugh it was a good one, so watch out for me when i eat eggs, lol ;D

Ok back to complete honesty, yes i have poor grammer and yes I want to help the booty grow and grow. The booty is like the cookie monster hehe ;D which i don't mind.

well good day to everyone, including the folks who dislike me.

I can look past bad spelling, but, you do need to use capital letters and periods.

Like Paden, it's not you personally that I dislike, just the behavior.

It's not a good idea to state your pirating intentions in public. There are paysite spies. They're probably reading this thread. You probably should read the TSR Sharing your information thread (http://phorum.mustnotbenamed.com/index.php/topic,2113.0.html) in ARR! If they think you are a pirate, they will probably share your information (name, paypal details, etc).

You also probably want to read Coconut's blog here (http://tsrcoconut.wordpress.com/). Check the posts about both Habitat and TSR sharing the information of people they thought were pirates.

Your not half right about her misrepresenting all us witches.  That whole blessed be thang is supposed to be something murmured from one witch to another, not slathering it around the place on a public forum, pissing everyone off.  If she wants to announce her religion, wear a pentacle or something subtle like that.  But keep it at that.  Its idiots like that who sully the reputation of Wicca in the eyes of everyone else who consider it to be just a silly hippy New Age thing and not one of the worlds comparative religions.  (On an interesting note, I find it fascinating that there are so many witches on this forum in the first place considering the percentage of Wiccans and Pagans there are world wide in comparison to Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Buddhism.)


Title: Re: OFFICIAL THANK YOU THREAD
Post by: Devilfish on 2009 January 27, 14:33:14
I don't think it's that strange. From what I've seen, wiccans and most pagans in general are activists by nature. I think this forum attracts people who are genuinely upset at the whole paysite situation and are dedicated to changing it. It figures some of those would be pagan.
I don't think there are that many wiccans in the world though. Millions of 12s wearing black nailpolish and blessed-being until they're blue in the face, but I rarely meet anyone who, to put it bluntly, gets it right and is seriouly dedicated to a religion instead of a fad that pisses off the parents. I met one once who insisted that if you didn't say "Blessed Be" at the end of every conversation you had no right to call yourself a wiccan. Ditto if you didn't wear do-and-so crystals. When I pointed out that Dutch (my native language) has no equivalent of "Blessed Be" and I couldn't afford those crystals, she was well and truly stumped for about ten minutes, after which she  excommunicated me ;D Did I mention she was the High Priestess of a coven of 3 which she founded, none of the members over 15 years old, and called herself Lady Ravenwings?

Anyway, this Entitlement Twat has managed to push all of my buttons. I'm actually glad I'm late to the game, otherwise I may have lost my temper ::)

Heh, I don't think Decyphera has the brains to think up something like that though  ::)  I've been Wiccan for over 12 years now.  Learnt about it at uni.  Knew people who called themselves white witches before then though.  Never really knew much about their beliefs.  I did the whole 1 year apprenticeship thing (while there is a lot out there in books and on the internet, its still best to have some guidance at the beginning).  A lot of wicca is stuff that is traditionally handed down, not read in a book somewhere.  There is no real correct and incorrect, as everyone's path is different.  The best bit of advice my mentors gave me was that its not the actions but the thoughts and intentions that matter most. 


Title: Re: OFFICIAL THANK YOU THREAD
Post by: SoggyFox on 2009 January 28, 00:37:37
The only guidance I've had in 20 years has been intuition and books.  Tried taking a white witchcraft course and it was fine, until there was the whole sex with someone assigned to me - no way, not in this day and age especially.  Besides, the Sacred Marriage is not for just anything, and not for a novice anyways.

But I'm also not actually Wiccan, I'm Celtic tradition, with a lot of other things picked up.  I've taken to calling myself a pantheist, since I believe all deities are real and a part of the greater whole.  I also have my level 2 Reiki attunement, and some psychic training and experience.  I've mostly just learned as much as I can and sorted it out as I've gone along.

I did have a very short bit of shamanistic training, but it was not for very long, and rather piecemeal.

Beg to differ. "Wicca is everything you wanted to be" and "It's not wicca if it doesn't involve ten grand worth of tools and stuff" is most definitely incorrect. But I do see what you mean. There's a lot of people who mean well enough but are just a little overwhelmed by all the half-truths, bullcrap and actual truths out there in mass quantities.
Meanie, what denomination are you? Only it sounds like you're Gardnerian and I'm interested in that :)

We got the air conditioner running.  Its still struggling to cool the place.

As for the whole Gardinerian practice, the whole concept of conducting rituals in the nude kind a freaks me out a little.  Then there is their version of drawing down the moon.  Gardiner strikes me as being absolutely obsessed with sex.
And the idea of the arranged marraige thing is so not Wicca.  Wicca is supposed to be based on the Old Religion or Pagan England.  No historical stuff that I have ever read ever mentioned arranged marraiges within that culture.  Thats more a Roman or Indian thing.  According to my research, a man and wife could be handfasted for one year.  But the couplings were not arranged in anyway

Ah, but performing magic while naked is traditional. I mean, why do you think D&D wizards don't wear armor? I mean, sure, it has BECOME about the idea that wizards don't have time to be trained to wear armor, etc., but this justification has so many holes in it that it simply doesn't hold up under scrutiny, or any knowledge of armor! The real reason is simple: Originally, magic was performed NAKED, but they don't want to SAY that.

Pes, thats Dungeons and Dragons.  Pen and paper and d20 and may a few d6's, a Dungeon Master/ Game Master and a few certifiable Nerds to play it.  Fiction.  I'm quite sure you regard Wicca as being mere fiction as well, (just as I'm sure you regard all religions as being mere fantasy).  But there is a distinct difference between Mages in D&D and Druids and Witches in real life..  And oh, yeah.  Mages in D&D don't cast spells in the nude, either.  They still need some form of armor class - they wear Robes.


Title: Re: OFFICIAL THANK YOU THREAD
Post by: Devilfish on 2009 January 28, 12:23:22
Really, there was no Olde Pagan Religion. Gardner came up with wicca in the 50s and I don't have a problem with that. And ol' Gerald was indeed obsessed with sex and knives. But I have no idea what Gardnerians get up to these days. There's none of them in my country and they keep their secrets locked up pretty tight, so who knows? I personally have no problem with the nudity and I heard several people who'd done the Great Rite in Truth and make it sound like it was the most wonderful, lifechanging experience they ever hoped to have. All between people who had been working together for years of course. Perfect love ad perfect trust and all that.

And my favourite class in D&D used to be sorcerer, before 4th edition D&D for Dummies came along. People usually assumed I played that class because I was wiccan and thought it was a hoot that I "really believed I could do all that stuff" in real life ::)

The whole thing about Wiccan Secrets, or Mysteries is that you learn them for yourself in your own time.  In those sorts of covens where secrets are kept, its a shared experience rather than an individual one. They usually also practice High Magic.  I've studied up on Ancient Egyptian magic and ritual which follows a similar vein - you know elaborate rituals and chants as such with the aim of invoking the Gods and strong protection spells and such.  With Egyptian magic, you have to be careful to use the Egyptian names of Gods and such, as opposed to the Greek and Roman versions.  So its Iset not Isis etc.

Actually, the idea of magic being done in the nude is victorian - its up there with white wedding dress and Handal's wedding march.  Some princess did it, so everyone copied it, and since the victorian era, everyone thinks its some old, old custom - its not.

Same with magic - Victorian times were extremely restrictive, so the 'occult' became very popular, and included dancing around outside with no clothing, up to orgies.

While there is no one 'olde tyme religion' that makes up paganism, any worship of pre-christian deities from the Mediterranean and Europe classify as pagan.  Some pagans include any non-judeo-christian faith system, just as native american and asian, but those probably shouldn't for a variety of reason.

Modern Wicca though is a completely new faith, really, just pulling from older things, much like who Christianity was new once and pulled from older things.


Title: Re: OFFICIAL THANK YOU THREAD
Post by: Immortelle on 2009 January 28, 22:24:58
The Victorian era is responsible for a lot of modern day western misconceptions.  Like the idea that belly dancing is some strange and scandalous style of dance that was performed for the enjoyment of men.  This is not true, as danse orientale is a part of many middle eastern and mediterranian cultures.  Afghanistan (khaleegi), Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey and Greece (tsifatelli) all have their unique styles.  Pretty much all the women grow up learning to belly dance as a form of execise.  But the victorians, when they saw this were scandalised by such 'suggestive undulations of the body'.  And its had a dodgy reputation ever since.

Granted some of the Wiccan practices are based on old pagan beliefs.  But all the true pagan cultures from the British Isles have been lost, wiped out by the Romans, and various other cultures.  (Teutonic cultures.  The Christian church did the majority of the damage, however.)  But many Wiccan covens will worship Egyptian and Greek gods, rather than the likes of Ceridwen and Epona.  Granted its not necessarily  the God as such but the energy that they represent that is called upon during any Rite.  And many of the worshipping practices that are performed are based on Egyptian ritual and magic as performed by ancient Egyptian priests and recorded in the Book of the Dead, parts of which were displayed within the tombs of the deceased, and others carefully transcribed onto papyrus scrolls.

In Greece it's called Tsifteteli. Fun Facts Gallore: Belly dancing origninated as a male bachic dance, wherein a young man would "promote" his flexibility and sexual prowess. Later it was taken over by eunichs and finally in the late 17th century by harem concubines. The Tsifteteli is quite easy and fun to do (that's if you don't mind dancing on tables in high heels  ;)) but demands a good sense of balance. It helps develop abs too!

Too bad my hubby hates going out to Greek music places. One does not look as sexy whilst headbanging  :P

Don't get me started on the Victorians, they're the morons that are responsible for the idea of Vikings having horns and wings upon helmets. Nothing could be farther from the truth because their armor was designed not to give an enemy sword anything to find purchase upon and do damage to the wearer underneath! The ideal was clean, smooth metal without edges for other weapons to catch. As I recall, it was the English, French and German that went in for all of the fancy scalloping and garbage. Also, of what use to a berserker in battle are horns upon the helmet? He can't aim the damn things to gore anyone with, they just add weight and bulk and someone could catch hold of his head and take it off by grabbing the horns! DUH!

As for wings? That's just silly, it's not like it's gonna help them fly over the battle and pick a foe from the crowd, or get them out of a pickle. Of what practical use is ornamentation in battle except for the enemy to pick you out and target you. Bleh, people with no common sense... Stupid fuckers...

Victorians I think also promoted the whole vikings as bloodthirsty barbarians.  And if you want to hear a rant about how vikings are portrayed in the media?  One of my housemates is Astaru and half swedish - he can really go off on that subject for hours, a bit like me and the fluffy bunny pagan :)

Most belly dance styles are pretty good for the abs, except for khaleegi (sort of pronounced haleezhi) which has a lot of slight lifting of the besequined robe (called a thobe), moving about with what looks like a slight limp and tossing the hair.  Modern Egyptian is really demanding on most muscles because it has a lot of layer upon layer movement.

I'm all for any religion that involves nekid men.  I wish mine would. 

Honestly, I do joke a lot about religion, but that's mostly because mine has been so screwed up (Christianity)  It boggles my mind how much blood has been shed in the name of someone who thought it might be cool if we could all just mellow out and get along.  I mean for pete's sake, Jesus hung out with leapers, tax collectors, women,  and all sorts of types who were on the lower end of the social scale at the time.  Yet, we have people screaming how Jesus hates homosexuals, or anyone who isn't a WASP.  I'm convinced that if Jesus were alive today, he'd be hanging out with societies fringes and volunteering his time to work with aides victims.  He'd be over in Africa trying to help the gangs of street children who've been orphaned because of aids.

He would not be sitting in Texas, with Bush.  That's not an anti Bush statement, the man is out of office, let's let the jokes end.  But I don't believe you'd find Jesus hanging with the white, uptight crowd that runs the country.  If I read my bible correctly, he got pissed at those types a lot.

This is why I don't belong to any particular church.  I won't, unless I'm able to start my own, which would be called The Church of Common Sense.  It's also why I believe that as long as your religion doesn't fringe on the rights of others, then more power to you.  I think that God takes many forms, and can be male or female.  I also believe that if he's the big bad bastard in charge of everything, everywhere, he has better things to do than to smite people for having the nerve to believe  in something different from the norm. 

I actually think God respects any religion that believes in respecting the Earth.  God made the earth, I'd imagine he'd like us to treat it with a little more respect.  Yet, a lot of people who profess to be Christians, also believe that the rapture is coming, so we might as well muck up the place all we like. 

*leaps off soap box*

But still, I like the idea of a  religion that would have naked men in it.  I'd probably make it a point to go to services more often.

And that, in a nutshell is why I stopped calling myself a Christian years ago.  I got tired of all the backbiting between denominations and even, in some cases, churches.  I grew up Catholic, but I 1> didn't really agree that women were incapable of being priests [at age 5], 2> didn't want to be associated with people teaching hate, of any sort.

I still follow the 2 commandments, Love the Divine, and Love your Neighbors as Yourself.  I might take the neighbors a bit more broadly than some, in that I think it includes any living things, and not just the people on your block :D but I won't link myself to hypocrisy and hatemongering.  You're right, he did hang out with all sorts of people, and didn't care what society thought.

The Church of Common Sense is something I could see myself getting behind. The problem with Christianity, and indeed with every religion I've encountered, is that at some point people try to use it for their own gain. I think that people have been using Christianity for selfish purposes for a very long time (*cough*Constantine*cough*) and it's rather ruined it for the people who could really use some good stuff in their life.

I read the entire bible by the time I was 10 and made the decision that there is no Hell, at least not as a place, only a state of mind.  This 'heresy' was helped by one of the Sisters who taught me at my catholic school - she said that Heaven and Hell were both banquest, lavish things, but you had 3 foot long utensils and couldn't use your fingers - in heaven, everyone just fed their neighbors, in hell, they starved because the idea of sharing never occurred to them.

So yeah, I made a bad Christian in the dogma sense :)

Okay, here's my problem with the nun's analogy.  According to the Christian faith, if you do not believe Jesus Christ died for your sins, you are going to hell.  (This is one of my huge picky points with organized religion.)  This means that it doesn't matter how nice you are, if you don't believe that, you're roasting.  It also means that Jeffrey Dalhmer is in Heaven and that irritates the snot out of me. 

That analogy of the banquet doesn't work for someone who follows the beliefs of organized Christianity, because some pretty nice people have died not believing in Jesus Christ,  People who certainly would feed their neighbors.  And some total assholes have died and gone to heaven that wouldn't dream of feeding their neighbors (Well Dalhmer might, but he would have fed the neighbor to his left, the neighbor to his right.) 

I would understand that analogy coming from someone who wasn't wrapped tight in the whole belief system, but I really always thought that in order to be a nun, you pretty much had to buy the whole apostles creed, verbatium.

Yes, but Catholism is a bit different in some regards, as are all the different sects of protestantism.

It also even varies from priest to priest - I grew up with the 'Your conscience is the final authority', but would get into horrible arguments with another catholic friend in college over that.  Also, according to Catholics, Dalhmer is -not- in heaven.  They don't have the once your baptized its all good.  That's why there is confession, after all.

Personally, i think its presumptuous for any human to assume they know God's will, whether you think she's one or many, or both; and no matter what you call him.  That's like assuming you know what I'm thinking, except several orders of magnitude higher.  That's what drives me crazy about church dogma.  We can go 'Hey, that person really lead a good life' but we might not know he was a rapist, or a very clever mass murderer.

And no, not saying anyone here is presuming to know the full mind of the divine :)

I was raised a Catholic in a mainly Orthodox country and that's no fun at all. Besides being picked on during Religious Studies (which are still mandatory here up to the end of high school thank you very much), everyone else let me do as I pleased. I have to stand by what Soggy said. Our priest was a very nice person and was always willing to listen. Confession was rather painless as he wouldn't be overtly critical and would just hand out Penance.

Nowadays... I honestly can't say that a single religion which would completely captivate me exists. I still believe in a higher authority (The science behind the whole Universe is too aesthetically pleasing to be completely random), but would that authority constantly worry about what I'm up to and keep a huge ledger just to track my life? Don't think so.

If I were forced to choose, I would worship Annoia, the goddess of clutter and things stuck in the kitchen drawer.  ;) (being a Pratchetterian and all)

Well, you've heard the saying, "I brought you into this world and I can take you out!" Some people envision it like a, "I brought you into this cosmos and I can wipe you out!" meaning that your total existence will be terminated permanently once the Judgement day is done. Which, I guess, is the total hell, knowing that you're risking eternal deletion from the scheme of things? But first you get to bubble and boil a bit, maybe. I don't presume to think that I know.

I argue that God is a simmer. The historical record has him claiming creation of humanity, yet there is this mysterious source of unexplained others for them to breed with (townies). Eventually, he gets bored and smites people for lulz, and finally loses interest and leaves the game running on its own. When God finally notices that the game has been left running, he will either take a renewed interest in things, or kill the process. To prevent this, we must escape the computer and kill him first.

And now you know what the Sims will do if you leave them running long enough.

Wow that makes God sound like he made us as lil sims [oy in his image?] and we're all just ideas in his heads thinking we live our own lives :o...scary, lol.  Of course that would totally make sense as to why some folks suffer and live and die in turmoil and poverty and others are rolling in dough.  But not very parent like. Which means the creators of the sims would be the archeaologists that uncovered the ancient texts and the modders/creators the ones who made it all make sense.   So it's original Sim instead of original sin...my what a difference one letter makes in a translation.  I  guess I do have a religion then ;).

Well, there's also the fact that Heaven itself is pretty unpleasant compared to Hell:

Quote from: Applied Optics, vol. 11, A14, 1972
The temperature of Heaven can be rather accurately computed from available data. Our authority is Isaiah 30:26, "Moreover, the light of the Moon shall be as the light of the Sun and the light of the Sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days." Thus Heaven receives from the Moon as much radiation as we do from the Sun, and in addition seven times seven (49) times as much as the Earth does from the Sun, or fifty times in all. The light we receive from the Moon is one ten-thousandth of the light we receive from the Sun, so we can ignore that. With these data we can compute the temperature of Heaven. The radiation falling on Heaven will heat it to the point where the heat lost by radiation is just equal to the heat received by radiation, i.e., Heaven loses fifty times as much heat as the Earth by radiation. Using
the Stefan-Boltzmann law for radiation, (H/E)^4 = 50, where E is the absolute temperature of the earth (-300K), gives H as 798K (525C). The exact
temperature of Hell cannot be computed, but it must be less than 444.6C, the temperature at which brimstone or sulphur changes from a liquid to a gas. Revelations 21:8 says "But the fearful, and unbelieving ... shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone." A lake of molten
brimstone means that its temperature must be at or below the boiling point, or 444.6C (Above this point it would be a vapor, not a lake.) We have,
then, that Heaven, at 525C is hotter than Hell at 445C.
Also, worth noting is that Hell surely has air-conditioning, as engineers, like myself, go to Hell. :P

I was never home during the summers when I was a kid... I was always shipped off to siblings so Dad could spend the summer, the WHOLE damn summer, doing the drill Sgt. thing in different states. He only did it during the summers, the rest of the year he taught school.

I HATED being shipped off, mainly because the siblings I was shipped to had a Bible shoved three quarters the way up their colon or most the way down their throats. Pentecostals, gotta love them. Like hell ya do, not when they're waking you up at four in the fucking morning screaming that they are feeling the Spirit and it moved them to wake you up and share. I stopped that when I rolled over and said, "You know, the spirit would leave you the fuck ALONE if you left the cap on top of the Jack Daniels. Now lemme alone, I'm going back to sleep." I was all of literal twelve. :D Sarcasm is a family trait, it seems.

That was my thought when I saw it.  Also, I see too much potential for revenge in the product.  "Oh darling, I know you've fallen in love with my best friend and I'll get over it, but please, one more fuck for old time's sake?"  

Yes, I know they address the issue of potential abuse of the product, but the thing is, at least from where I stand, I know a lot more women who were scorned by men than were raped.  In fact, I think every woman I've ever met can tell me about a guy who screwed her over in some way.  Sure, most of them wouldn't go that far, but enough of them in the world, I think, would go that far.

Dr House - you know clicking things here leads to the profound loss of innocence :D
I've been away for months & actually totally forgot about that one. That's what you get from Fallouting too much.
My innocence, lemme has it back! ;D Hey, that'ld make a great T-shirt!

No - I mean by enraging rapists.  Rape is often about making the woman submissive - and proving their power.  Do this to a rapist, and he's likely to feel a great anger and hurt you badly, possibly kill you.
Aaaah! Totally agree with ya hun *nods*
In fact instead of anti-rape condoms two options seem better: karate that bastard - not very common & needs high body skill & training - or run like hell - incompatible with high heels.

That was my thought when I saw it.  Also, I see too much potential for revenge in the product.  "Oh darling, I know you've fallen in love with my best friend and I'll get over it, but please, one more fuck for old time's sake?" 

I think that's likely to be a small percentage.  And of course, the assertion that the product will lead to conviction is absolutely ludicrous.  Women with black eyes and other marks don't get convictions because they weren't the "right" kind of woman to get a conviction on their behalf, so the idea that the rapex would lead to conviction is stupid. 

Your average conviction on rapes reported to police is 14% (roughly 1 in 3 are reported, giving you an idea of the scale of unreported rape and rape generally) so I don't think this stupid device would make one bit of difference.  Considering that stranger rape is the rarest of all rapes, and it's more likely to be a date rape, then what you *don't* want is a man who's had his sense of manhood injured with your fucking name and address. Say hello stalking and murder victim, who has been raped (after all - the device only activates after penetration) as well. 

I've been away for months & actually totally forgot about that one. That's what you get from Fallouting too much.

Then you deserve losing it. :D :P

A nice thought - but the reality is that most women just freeze, and don't do anything.  They punish themselves afterwards for doing nothing, but it's a common thing trained into girls from a young age.  Even if they have karate lessons, they often freeze.  If you *had* to have an anti-rape device, I would suggest a chastity belt - at least that way you could ensure no penetration anywhere below the belt, and doesn't enrage the rapist quite so much.

You know the simplest rape prevention?

"NO!!!!"

Obviously if women were socialized to say "no" more and sooner, it would not prevent all rapes. But it would prevent a hell of a lot. Every woman I know who was sexually assaulted knew their assaulter, and the ones who were assaulted as teens or adults were too "nice" to say no soon or loud. I've never been sexually assaulted, and I've put myself in supposedly stupid situations: but partly I'm lucky, and partly I'm the kind of woman who, if a guy touches me and I don't want him to, everyone within a mile knows it. Saying, loudly, "get your hands off me, I don't know you and don't want to," to a guy "massaging" your shoulder might make some women feel like bitches, but I'd rather be seen as a bitch than a target. (It never stopped me getting guys when I did want them either.)

To hear my father tell it, "NO" was my favourite word, said in a loud and penetrating voice that could be heard clear across a store. Many an ex-boyfriend heard it in the same tone, followed by a punch to a soft part of the anatomy if they tried to continue. It's one of the best ways to prevent it from happening, but I still like the follow up of a bullet between the eyes if they try to persist. Never had to do it, but did have the gun aimed and cocked before he left.

She would be far more likely to shoot herself, or do nothing. The US has plenty of guns, plenty of people who know how to use guns, and it's not exactly a crime-free utopia. It does have about 80 deaths per day by gun violence, including about 8 kids.

Which is why you teach people how to use a gun & promote gun safety. There are always going to be idiots with guns, just like there also will be idiots with other forms of weapons...the world is full of idiots. The biggest problem with kids getting guns is that their parents need to keep the guns locked up. I know this sounds like I am simplifying things a lot, but I think we need to take more accountability for our own actions. I know how to use a gun & highly doubt I would shoot myself.
As far as women 'avoiding' rape by avoiding being in a situation where it could occur...sounds like you are talking more about date rape. And yeah, while I think women should be more careful about getting themselves in a potentially bad situation, I also don't think you can tell by looking at a guy whether he is a rapist. The most approachable, seemingly nice guy could be the worst, while a scroungy-looking dude could actually be the nicest. It is also laying the blame of rape at the woman's door...something society is all too ready to do!

And the moment you start laying rape at the womans door, you get a whole new can of worms opening up.  All the work that the Women's RIghts movements have done over the past century are suddenly for naught.    Rapists can then use, the 'she was asking for it' excuse.  Blaming what she was wearing,  that she was outside at night, that she was alone, etc. 

The problem with the word no, is that not all rapists listem to the word no.  The problem with using a gun is the odds that the rapist has a gun too, and will likely use it before the victim does.  Better to learn some form of martial arts. Work out a little.

I've been a black belt tae-kwon-do athlete since I was a 12 and I used to compete, so I believed I'd have no qualms about hitting somebody if I was attacked. Turns out on the one occassion that someone tried to molest me I hollered like heck before I even thought about hitting him. It worked, he left me alone and I've never since had a problem. Being trained to perform martial arts athletically leaves you with a huge disadvantage. I started training when I was a 0 (5 y.o. actually) and every single coach I ever had drilled in that what we learn on the mat stays on the mat. To this day I doubt I'd lift a finger against somebody, just cause I know I could seriously hurt them.

I'll support what has been mentioned before, rape or assault is rarely a phenomenon committed by strangers. It's more often than not people who you know and think you can trust. In my case, a friend I'd known since grade school who thought I was goofing around when I told him no the first 10 times. Just say no emphatically and if it's someone you know threaten to tell other people about their behaviour. (and warning other people about their actions is also a good idea).

I have a friend who was able to scare a rapist into not going ahead with his plan, I kid you not.  She lived in this building where this guy had broken into various apartments and raped two women.  Neither of them called the police, but my friend heard about it.  And yes, she tried to secure her apartment, but in order to make major changes (like bars on the windows, or alarming the whole place) you need to get the landlord's permission and he was a cheap bastard.

The guy broke into her place one night and she convinced him she was crazier than he was.  She started yelling that it took him long enough to get around to her, and wasn't she good enough for him, and told him his knife was kinky and she liked that, she just treated him like he was a roving male hooker, sent around for her amusement.  The guy got freaked and left.  She called the police.  They caught the guy, but they couldn't pin anything but a B&E on him, because he never got far enough to make sure that rape was his intent.

If the two previous victims had been willing to come forward and tell what happened, they probably could have pinned the rape charges and gotten the guy to go to jail a lot longer.  As it was, the guy got a 5 year sentence and was out in about 18 months for "good behavior."  And, because yaknow, the jails are crowded, so they needed to push out a harmless little rapist to make room for a really important criminal, like a guy who was caught smoking a joint.  'Cause those pot smoking guys are a real danger to society compared to a guy who breaks into apartments and rapes women.  

But, in a situation like that, it's pretty black and white.  The guy wasn't known, he broke into apartments, he raped women.  It's not like that can be misunderstood.  Date rape is harder, because a lot of times these guys completely and utterly convince themselves that she wanted it, that she was giving out the signals, whatever, and thus, they can be utterly sincere in court.  Meanwhile, because women are supposed to be the strong ones, and society often attaches a shame to a woman who "gives in" women are reluctant to turn in a date rapist because they're deep down afraid that they gave him a wrong signal or did something wrong that led to this.  But if in a clear cut case of "guy not invited, coming into your place late at night and forcing sex at knife point" and women are still afraid of the humiliation they might have to face if they told, imagine how it must feel to someone to step forward and have people think, "Sure, it was rape *snort* the bitch was asking for it!"

That doesn't happen. Like you say, there's always idiots with guns - better not to promote them as the solution to all problems. They create a lot more problems than they fix.

Of course rapists don't listen to the word No, but some sort of activity is better than nothing.  A rapist isn't likely to have a gun though - more likely to have a knife or a cord, or nothing at all.  Most rapists don't want to kill the victim - they want to terrify and cow them, so they don't tend to use guns.  On the practical side, you can't give someone a quiet little gunshot wound to make them behave, and part of it is making the victim comply through strength and the threat of violence.

Apart from changing mindsets, I don't think there is any surefire way to stop a rape. 

I'll support what has been mentioned before, rape or assault is rarely a phenomenon committed by strangers. It's more often than not people who you know and think you can trust.

Rare in comparison with other rapes - not rare in itself though.

But, in a situation like that, it's pretty black and white.  The guy wasn't known, he broke into apartments, he raped women.  It's not like that can be misunderstood. 

That doesn't always guarantee a conviction, believe it or not.  That is the most likely scenario that will lead to conviction, but still the character of the victim is used at trial - whether she said No, whether she's had some boyfriend visit her in the middle of the night and have sex with her, whether she was lubricated. And you can bet your arse that if it were a rape trial with more victims, he would have fought harder.

Meanwhile, because women are supposed to be the strong ones, and society often attaches a shame to a woman who "gives in" women are reluctant to turn in a date rapist because they're deep down afraid that they gave him a wrong signal or did something wrong that led to this.  But if in a clear cut case of "guy not invited, coming into your place late at night and forcing sex at knife point" and women are still afraid of the humiliation they might have to face if they told, imagine how it must feel to someone to step forward and have people think, "Sure, it was rape *snort* the bitch was asking for it!"

Most people in the CJS wouldn't be willing to go through a rape trial - and many wouldn't want to put their kids in to testify for a child sexual abuse because of the way victims get treated at trial.  Even though here we've removed the ability for defense lawyers to use the victim's history, they bypass that by questioning the victim extensively about that at the summary trial (indictment in the US) so that the victim is primed for the actual trial and fucks their testimony because they get nervous and agitated.

The VAST majority of rapists don't have any weapon and don't even use their fists. How often do you carry a gun to a party, on a date, or to a friend's house?

As it happens, calalily, I share your opinions about guns. But even getting legislation that makes people wait a week before buying a semi-automatic, or registering their weapons, passed, is incredibly hard in the U.S., and often political suicide. It's hard even for many Americans to understand (unlike the stereotype, most of us do not own guns): gun culture here is deeply tied up with patriotism, religion, deep-rooted, constantly fed fear, a certain kind of masculinity, and ideas of (specifically American) "whiteness". The NRA is phenomenally powerful, and they can convince many of their followers that any legislation about guns whatsoever means next thing you know, the men in black will be taking away hunting rifles.

Oh definitely.  I think it's so ingrained in the culture there it's impossible to remove it.  We had the Port Arthur massacre, and the majority of people here were happy to agree to gun control (although I understand a lot of farmers buried their guns in lengths of PVC pipe - just the place for quick accessibility in case of attack).  In the US, no matter how many people die, the idea of giving up guns? Never on the agenda - and I doubt it ever will be.

Well, I don't know if I'm the best person in the world to talk about this, I'm really, in the main, anti-gun, but I certainly see them (as they pertain to my life) as a necessary evil. I must say, I have two guns here in this very house and another in my place up north. I am, indeed, American, and I would, indeed, throw a shit fit if my government tried to take away my guns. But I think that the mild legislation that has been suggested (regulation on automatic weapons) is more than reasonable. Because, really, an AK-47 is just a little too too when it comes to Gran protecting herself. However, I am an Alaskan, and living out in my particular part of the woods during hunting season without a gun is simply inviting trouble, being female as I am. And there are always going to be those shit-stupid hunters that come trespassing on my property. They have guns. What should I have, a fucking knife? Plus there's, you know, wildlife and junk (who, incidentally, bother me considerably less). The way I grew up, you don't go out without your dog or your gun, preferably both. You just don't. It's more than mere culture for us up here. Having a gun is like having a pack of matches - just something you should have, no matter what you're doing. Because if you find yourself in a situation where you need it and don't have it, you're fucked. Well, except those pussies from Anchorage. That city really should get rid of their guns. Anyhow, we were also raised with respect for what guns are capable of, and most of the kids I grew up with were taught how to properly treat them - which is something that Texas trailer trash simply don't bother with, it seems.

I was taught to use and respect guns. Both of my parents were members of the NRA and adhered to what they teach, which is respect for the weapon and how to use it properly. Official history (http://www.nrahq.org/history.asp) of the group shows what the actual aims for the founding were. I know the damage one can do, I know the safety one can bring and I know the food that one can provide. I also know that you never, ever get one out when you're angry or not in control of yourself, which sadly, some people don't.

Not ALL Americans are trigger happy fucking idiots, which some people from other countries do not seem to understand. If they didn't have guns to commit crimes with, they'd find something else, from lead pipes to goddamn boomarangs. The actual guns do NOT commit the crimes, the PEOPLE wielding them do. It's the people that don't get the education that misuse the fucking things, not those of us that have relied on them for protection and food. If some raving fucking lunatic broke into my house intent on doing harm to myself or my family, I would feel no remorse about defending us with a gun. I'd rather see my family alive and be up on charges than have all of us dead.

I do own a gun. It's locked up in a gun safe that is locked up in something else. If/when my son reaches the mental capacity to learn gun safety, he will be taught. Should he never reach that stage, he'll never know that I own it, simple as that. The gun was my mother's. It was given to her by my father and it was given to him by the U.S. Army Air Corp. It was his personal side arm and when he had to serve his summer time duty and such, he felt better knowing that my mother had that there to protect herself and their children because they lived in an area that was known for shit happening to women alone with kids. I'm glad she had it, or I'd never have been born five years after they moved.

That same gun put food on the table when the times were hard and the money was tight but a hunting license was owned. Because of that firearm, we ate well. Like it's already been said, some of us know how to treat guns and respect them. Don't judge a whole country based on what fuckwits do because they're too damn ignorant to know that guns stay locked up when not being used for hunting and you sure in the hell don't use them when angry. Anyone with half a brain knows that.

The thing is with the criminal element in Australia is that if they want a gun they will get it off the black market.  Although I still do not see that as a reason for honest folk to have a gun on them, as use of a gun would only provoke a criminal to use his.  I've known crims, one idiot is apparently locked up now for shooting someone. A lot of crims have had some seriously messed up lives, they've seen and done stuff that normal folk would probably only read about.  All that crap makes them incredibly unpredictable and at times extremely volatile Gun laws make it a damn site harder for them to arm themselves with a gun, and many of them have to resort to carrying a knife, which is much easier to deal with.  If you want a gun to protect yourself, remember this, a gun can only make a bad situation worse, so think very carefully before getting it out.

Changing mindsets is important, yes. You need to start early on, by teaching your kids to kill starting from birth. Your first and immediate reaction to physical attack should be to kill the attacker.

I've been a black belt tae-kwon-do athlete since I was a 12 and I used to compete, so I believed I'd have no qualms about hitting somebody if I was attacked. Turns out on the one occassion that someone tried to molest me I hollered like heck before I even thought about hitting him.
See, this illustrates the problem: Martial arts training is only worth so much: Unless have trained to overcome that squeamishness against killing, all that training is worthless because you have already ceded the initiative to the attacker. This is the sort of the training that has to be started from birth for best effect. Children should be trained to kill immediately and without hesitation. Your first response to attack should not be ineffectual screaming or wailing, but to strike immedaitely, and strike to kill. The truth is that there are no dangerous weapons, only dangerous people. Be one of them.

That would certainly make things a lot better.  But the gun culture is still too ingrained in USians to let them acknowledge that 9 bullets a second might be a tad excessive for self defence.  Until the mindset is changed that guns are a solution to violence, there's no hope whatsoever that things will change.

If they didn't have guns to commit crimes with, they'd find something else, from lead pipes to goddamn boomarangs. The actual guns do NOT commit the crimes, the PEOPLE wielding them do.

Until I hear of a case with a five year accidentally beating himself to death with a lead pipe, or 10 people being killed via driveby boomerang attack, I will and do assume that guns are in a completely different league.

Gun laws make it a damn site harder for them to arm themselves with a gun, and many of them have to resort to carrying a knife, which is much easier to deal with.  If you want a gun to protect yourself, remember this, a gun can only make a bad situation worse, so think very carefully before getting it out.

Ha - true.  Knife control is the biggest new issue in criminology - as a result of the difficulty of getting hold of a gun.  And statistics show that if you have a gun to defend yourself, you are heaps more likely to be shot - either by the criminal because he feels he has no control, or by yourself.

I'd never own a gun.  Not because I couldn't learn to use it, I could.  But because I know there are times when I've lost control. 

I don't see them as necessary - I've known many people who've lived their entire lives without guns.  Pffft - there are USians who live without guns, and they seem to live just fine.

Changing mindsets is important, yes. You need to start early on, by teaching your kids to kill starting from birth. Your first and immediate reaction to physical attack should be to kill the attacker.

I agree with you on this - although I would argue that they should incapacitate, or at least remove the threat - not kill.

Actually - the problem with guns is whether or not you know someone has one - I live in a town in the states where it was written into law that -every- household had to have a gun.  The crime rate dropped to the lowest in the state and possibly the lowest in the country.  When you know that every house has guns, you are less likely to break into it.

And the best deterrent to violence I could think of is pepper spray - someone sprayed some in a huge store and even clear across the store it was killing me - can't imagine how bad having it sprayed in my face would be.  And you couldn't actually kill someone to my knowledge, with it,

I don't really care. Someone breaks into my house, I won't hesitate to point my gun & calmly tell them to get the hell out. And if they don't...I will not hesitate to shoot them. And with my guns, they are pretty much gonna be dead. While I really don't WANT to kill someone...they should have stayed out of my house. It's mine! I don't carry a gun because I don't have a concealed carry permit yet, tho our county recently passed a law that we can. I do have a weapon tho...sometimes the best defense is a good offense.

Guns still won't prevent a person breaking into your house and stealing your stuff.  Why?  Because most thieves will do it when they know you are not home.  They still will won't prevent an attacker from attacking you.  Why?  Because if they know you have a gun, more than likely they will have their weapon pointed at you first.  Most crims have a lot less regard for human life than what you do, and when push comes to shove they will more likely pull the trigger to kill before you even have a chance to aim yours.  Don't kid yourself into thinking that a gun is going to protect you against criminals, it only makes them worse.  You want to protect yourself against home invasion?  Get some good doors.  Barr up the windows.  Lock them.  Harder to get in and a far greater deterrant than any gun.

What you feel you need for protection pretty much depends on where you live and what level your personal safety factor is at.  I live in a city where there is a lot of poverty, thus a lot of crime. Yet, when I was a walking fool, I was going for long night rambles around the place and the only person to ever give me a hard time were the police.  

My house has been robbed, but it was when we went out.   But, because of that, we now lock the door leading into our building at night, where we used to leave it unlocked.  

I don't feel the need to carry a gun or really, any type of weapon anywhere I go in this city.  And while I know there are people who are responsible and can have firearms without posing a danger to themselves or society, I am not one of those people.

 We had long guns on the farm I grew up on but that was because of the frequent rabies epidemics in the area. That was more to protect the animals than ourselves, or perhaps a little hunting.

 If violent crimes are a function of poverty then we could be in for a rough ride with the economy going the way it has. I still can't fathom how that's a cultural aspect though.

Crime of all sorts, is generally higher in areas where money is scarce.

And the best deterrent to violence I could think of is pepper spray - someone sprayed some in a huge store and even clear across the store it was killing me - can't imagine how bad having it sprayed in my face would be.  And you couldn't actually kill someone to my knowledge, with it

Some people have a bad reaction, and you can sustain serious burns if someone is overzealous.  I don't have an issue with anything that causes pain - tasers etc. but stops short of being able to kill decisively. I just don't think that an ordinary citizen should be given the ability to administer the death penalty.

While I really don't WANT to kill someone...they should have stayed out of my house. It's mine!

This is part of the problem for me - the opinion that a DVD player is worth more than a person.  Not everyone breaks into a house to hurt the occupants. And considering that almost every single person who argues that they're great with guns, and very responsible, then what exactly is the use of having a weapon, locked up, separated from the ammunition in your house?  I can't forsee people waiting for you to find your keys in the middle of the night and then assemble it.  So really, in a pinch, you won't have your gun.

It seems that most of you are saying that some form of protection is required. Is violent crime that prevalent? I'm not making light of the issue, I'm just shocked at what I'm hearing.

The reality is that no form of protection is required - it's part of the mindset of justification for why guns are good.  Plenty of USians live in relative peace with no need to actually ever use a gun, and certainly no one has blazed in here with their anecdote of how they shot various home invaders. Indeed, having a gun as part of the equation makes it *more* likely that you'll be hurt.

Don't kid yourself into thinking that a gun is going to protect you against criminals, it only makes them worse.

I agree wholeheartedly.  Guns denote the power relationship. In robbery situations, if your assailant has a gun and you cooperate, he's less likely to hurt you than he is if he has a knife - because the assailant has the power.

If violent crimes are a function of poverty then we could be in for a rough ride with the economy going the way it has. I still can't fathom how that's a cultural aspect though.

All property crimes are a function of poverty - not all violent crimes.  Culturally, there are some differences - more gun crimes in the US because of the gun control policy in the US, while the UK has high volumes of knife crimes.

I used to be married to an Army Airborne Ranger. He was career army, very gung-ho. He would be gone in the field for weeks at a time, leaving me home alone. For my safety, he and his buddy taught me all about guns and how to use them. I was never around guns before then, but he had so many weapons that he felt it better that I know how to use one. They took me shooting one day and it was actually kinda fun. I got to fire several different guns, from a civil war pistol to a Glok. They made sure to teach me how to fire the 12 gauge shotgun, since that was what I would use to protect myself in the event of a break-in or an intruder, etc. It was kept "combat ready" under the bed. My husband told me that, in all likelyhood, I would never have to fire it. The sound of the gun being cocked, or pumped would be enough to scare off anyone. It's a very distinct sound that everyone recognizes, especially criminals. And with the shotgun loaded with bird-shot, good aim isn't even necessary. Just point in the general direction of the scumbag and fire.
Luckily, I never had to shoot anyone. But it was during that time that a very good friend of mine was shot during an attempted robbery, half a block from my house. She survived, but lost her spleen. She has to take meds everyday for the rest of her life.
I guess I'm saying that everyone can agree that there are some people that shouldn't have guns, but if you outlaw guns entirely, then only the outlaws will have guns. It's a difficult balance.

ok, I'll shut-up now. :D

It was kept "combat ready" under the bed.

See now, this is what I mean - it can't both be "combat ready" and held according to the law. So you can't be a responsible, law abiding gun owner and use it for the purpose it's bought for.

The sound of the gun being cocked, or pumped would be enough to scare off anyone. It's a very distinct sound that everyone recognizes, especially criminals.

You can actually buy that - just the cocking mechanism - so that you can do the "chik-chik" sound which will put the shits up someone without actually having a gun. :D

I guess I'm saying that everyone can agree that there are some people that shouldn't have guns, but if you outlaw guns entirely, then only the outlaws will have guns. It's a difficult balance.

Controlling them this way means that there are so many fewer shootings.  A petty criminal or casual criminal can't obtain a gun on a whim - so there are less shootings all round. I don't think I've ever heard of a driveby shooting here.

ok, I'll shut-up now. :D

You don't have to apologise for being forthright and opinionated.

They do happen. Albeit, very, very rarely.  Most shootings are linked to bikie gangs however, and they procure their weapons via the black market.

I'm actually less concerned about guns and gun control issues than I am about the need for personal protection. I can understand wanting to protect ones home and family. What I'm curious about is the need to carry weapons. Is it fear or prudence?

You can keep a gun combat ready here, as far as I know - city law.  Personally, my weapons are all combat ready except for the antique eqyptian dagger a friend sent me recently that needs work.  I've never been attacked, and I've lived in some poor and crime heavy areas - And when you befriend your neighbors, then you have folks to guard your back.

But it still stands that crime in my town is -very- low, and its only been since the gun law was put into place.

I live in the country, and a very large county.  The amount of meth labs is high, we also have our fair share of body dumps from the city, although it has been awhile since I have heard of one.  Our county is also poor, which means we don't have a large police force.  We keep our doors locked, garage door shut, and we lock the doors from inside the garage to the house.

I have a gun almost combat ready, meaning the clip is loaded and takes me 2 seconds to remove the trigger lock.  The only reason the clip is out is because I have children in the house, and I do believe it *is* illegal to have a loaded gun in the house with minors, but otherwise I don't think it is illegal to have a loaded firearm.  Now, my children are all expert shots too.  My 17 year old son was awarded ... can't think of the proper name off hand...  He has the expert marksmanship pin from the Army, and of my three boys, he is probably the worst shot!  :P

Same here! We've had attempted break-ins. It takes the cops a good bit to get here & I'm not going to wait for them to show up if someone breaks into my house. If they are breaking in it is sure that they are up to no good. Maybe they ARE just there to steal something. But the 2 guys that beat a fellow to death not far from us were just there to steal too. He didn't have a gun.
We could argue this point all year. We are probably going to have to just agree to disagree. The right to bear arms is one constitutional right that I hold dear. My opinion on that will never change. But I know that other people have the right to their own opinions. Hey, that is what makes life interesting & debate is always good. For myself bmyall, it is prudence. My dog would probably scare someone off before they ever got in, but I figure if they aren't afraid of  him then I would have little chance against them unarmed. So I choose to be armed!

Yes - when you wrote that I googled it, and found a couple of incidents.  But certainly it's not the phenomenon here that it is in the US.

I'm actually less concerned about guns and gun control issues than I am about the need for personal protection. I can understand wanting to protect ones home and family. What I'm curious about is the need to carry weapons. Is it fear or prudence?

Fear and moral panic.  People have a propensity to believe that crime is becoming worse - you can find diatribes in Ancient Greek literature about youths in gangs with green capes and the waiting collapse of society, and the same rant about morals in the 1800s concerning children and the moral character of the younger generation.  People are all too ready to believe that they will be attacked, and while being in a low socio-economic area makes one more prone to either being a victim or a witness to a violent crime, the reality is that guns make people feel like they are doing something.  One could argue that the confidence it gives them is enough, since they won't actually use it.

But it still stands that crime in my town is -very- low, and its only been since the gun law was put into place.

I've heard about that law in that town - and crime is very low.  However, there was a study about that town in a sociological research journal, and it was found that most people *had* guns already, the decrease of the crime rates from the 70's generally (which was western world wide) and the rates fluctuate anyway.  And that there was no decrease attributed from the actual ordinance, but that crime rates were generally low and stayed consistently low.

But the law was, if my memory serves, passed in the 80s, when I was in high school or maybe even early college.  So anywhere from 80 to 86 or so.

Yep - the study I read was from 83.  Maybe I didn't write clearly enough - crime in the Western World universally went down from a height in the 1970s no matter what gun laws there were.  For example, crime plummeted in the 90s, but imprisonment skyrocketed.
