Out of the Blue

With a day game yesterday following a twilight double-header on Tuesday, the Mets managed to win three games in under 24 hours. I'm guessing that's not even a record, but I have never heard of that happening before.

Hijack? In this thread the suggestion came up to nuke Muslims. I replied in part "As much as possible, the innocent should not be harmed." How is that "hijacking"?

You are taking advantage of any opportunity to exercise your anti-Islamic agenda... Claiming topicality by responding to one of Cutter's ill-considered comments is a perfect example. How long will it be before you find another way to shoehorn another of these comments in somewhere?

The thread on Six Days is a thread about our current effort in Iraq, which is an act of self-defense (even if misguided) against jihad.

Oh, there's my answer... one sentence.

My comments in the Metaverse thread on the free market contained no religious references whatsoever.

Your defense against my complaint is that six posts ago you made one post without a reference to religion? Oh, I see, that post is one where you were arguing politics. Are you aware this is a gaming site?

And the ancient "rape religious figures" thread? I stated facts in response to libelous statements about the content of my site. Which leads to this question: If I state facts about Islam, how is that "religious fanaticism"? Are not those quotations "religious fanaticism"? Are not those advocating and implementing those commands "religious fanatics"?

Don't mistake this conversation with the lengthy Op Ed debate you are still involved in. This will not become a lengthy back-and-forth based on your ability to twist semantics.

So, not only have I not "hijacked multiple recent threads," I have not promoted "religious fanaticism," I've warned against it.

Okay, we can agree to disagree about how to characterize what you are doing, but if you keep doing it, my opinion will win out and I will ban you.

Are you going to ban me for stating facts regarding the ideology responsible for 9/11? If so, whose side are you on?

I should just ban you for that comment alone...
