Yes, puppy does contribute to many threads on a regular basis while some members tend to only pop up to argue religion. But that's not against the rules so I can't really complain.

Yes, I'm seriously asking because this seriously bothers me.
I can't speak for the mods or what went on behind the scenes, but I do know she has a history of being offensive. She also asked me to stop posting on her threads via PM because I called her out on her offensiveness and inappropriateness in them. I have since found out I'm not the only one. I feel she posts here to rile people up on purpose and then gets all defensive and rude when she's called out on it. Out of respect to her I haven't posted a single negative thing about or to her since, until this post.

And back I go to stalkdom. I really don't come here to aggravate people, I promise. She's the only one I really haven't gotten along with here, ever. I think maybe she needs a break to learn some empathy for those on this board, and think before she posts.

No one bats an eye at someone calling Thor a "bad name," and heck, there could be Asatruars here, but the moment someone pulls the same move on the Abrahamic pantheon then war descends upon the evil sinner. That deserves a big fat eyeroll.
When in the world did anyone on ds ever call Thor a mean name? This is ridiculous. You're not comparing apples to oranges anyway. Tell the pagans they're all new age hippie psychos (I can't even think of a clever insult, fail) and off to the guillotine you go, and rightfully so.

I really don't understand why we have to have debates about which religions are more okay to insult. Um, none? Again, since when is being respectful giving someone special treatment?

Roughly 90% of the discussions I participate in on online forums are debate related. It has been that way for the past almost decade. I debate as a pastime, and I study religion. Three plus years ago I spent loads of time debating the merits of UC, homebirth, breastfeeding, and all things AP because that made up much of my studies, along with religion. Since I'm out of that stage I focus my attention elsewhere.

Her response wasn't even about what I posted, I was not arguing the merits of Christianity over other religions. I wasn't even arguing anything or claiming to be right about anything. Some of you are way too intense for me, I'm all for sharing ideas and discussing things but being lectured at like I'm an ignorant SAHM...which I am...is not enjoyable.

Well if people get banned because they deliberately stir the pot then OP should also be banned. She starts these kind of threads often and I have wondered in the past if she does it only to see them derail.

I actually like that she does it because I do think these things have to get talked about, so OP, NOTHING AGAINST YOU. I just want to understand why Puppydog was banned.

I don't know, it just bothers me that she was banned.

She really does come into a lot of threads and say very inflammatory things. Like one liner drive by snipes, you know? There's a history there.
