It can be. jmfcst (sic) was a very long-standing, very controversial but more loved than hated right-wing member from Texas who was notable chiefly for his firm devotion to conservative Evangelical Christianity, his unusually and sometimes maddeningly high degree of intellectual seriousness about said devotion, and his mostly pretty good sense of humor. He was banned very recently after spending a very long time trolling just enough not to get banned; apparently he felt that it was time.

Jmfcst incident?

The long-deserved eviction of our resident condescending, overbearing, intolerant fundamentalist firebrand, an incident about which I'm still not quite sure why everyone is so upset.

Roll Eyes lay off him, will you. He meant well. Sure he was intolerant and a bigot, but he was nice and courteous. Jmfcst is to the Atlas Forum what Benjamin Franklin is to America.

Let me rephrase that (as I'm about 40% awake rn)

Jmfcst is to Atlas Forum...well, he's just a pillar. He's a giant. He was one of the originals and him being gone...it just feels like something's missing. It's not right.

No kidding. Be glad you arrived so soon after his deportation - he probably would have tried to burn you as a heretic.

It's usually easier to debate with religious conservatives than libertarians and liberals.

First, I'd be interested to hear why you think this.

Second, it was actually a lot harder than you'd think to debate jmfcst, mainly because the internal (emphasis on internal) coherence of his worldview was absolutely merciless.

If it helps the Mets to keep winning with a bunch of no names, I will sing every verse of L' Internationale and Joe Hill for good measure.

More to the point though, Ive met and am friends with a lot of young, idealist lefties. The years set in and pedestrian careers follow. Dentists, Lawyers, and fund accountants.

-edit. Mind you these are good and prosperous careers, however, not exactly fighting the power.

Far too tired to credit it properly or even make sure it's right, but roughly: "jmfcst was a bigot. But he was our bigot." The jmfcst has been around since ever.

Stop hijacking our welcome thread for the new guy.  He might think we're inhospitable.

OK, final warning.  If you want to talk about jmf, there are threads devoted to him all over the forum.  This is not the place.  This is the place to welcome our new friend.

     So the forum is 80% Marxist? It's more left-wing than the left-wingers will admit, but I wouldn't go that far. Tongue
