MarkiusMahamius comments on Apr 9, 2019:
Do you have some examples of people who are spooned or whatever? I found this https://www.libertarianism.org/columns/lysander-spooners-moral-theory and this https://butyoudontlooksick.com/articles/written-by-christine/the-spoon-theory/ but I wasn't sure if you were talking about politics or looking for hugs, or something else. This seems like a great example of things that belong in groups.

MarkiusMahamius comments on Apr 6, 2019:
I'm all in favor of slashing the ability to inherit wealth. Many of the taxes that are currently forced on the workers, could be paid by estates instead. Dead people don't need money, and no one is just entitled to get that money after they're gone. Enjoy what you have while you have it, and STFU with trying to run things from beyond the grave, with wills and such.
[yahoo.com] Bill Maher defends Joe Biden for touching controversy - He's not Harvey Weinstein or ...
MarkiusMahamius comments on Apr 6, 2019:
Biden was only willing to non consensually "communicate" with women by invading their space/caressing/whatever the heck you call it. He didn't do it to men, and that's paternalism at best, and sexism in the middle, and harassment at the worst. Yeah he's not alone and he's not unusual and he's nowhere near predator level. He's a thoughtless jerk whose behaviors belie his spoken word. So, he's also amassed a huge amount of power over the years, the whole political system is corrupt, and were just choosing between evils here. But I think men are getting better. What's Biden, like a few years older than DT?
Evolutionary changes played a crucial role in industrialization, study finds
MarkiusMahamius comments on Apr 6, 2019:
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lucifer_Principle This guy has some super interesting writings about evolution working on groups/gene pools vs on individuals. Fascinating stuff, but the author himself was obviously a racist who was using his curiosity about why different cultures are the way they are, to fuel his belief system. Hopefully there will be more thoughts on his work, but without the hatred and moral shitshow. Lots of his stuff is available online full text if you're interested.

MarkiusMahamius comments on Apr 5, 2019:
It seems like you're reading an awful lot into this. I'm pretty sure none of us know much about why people make the choices they make, and I'd go out on a limb and say that men seem to be extra clueless about women, as a youngster who's looked to older men for guidance. But anyhow, I don't think any of the women I know are dressing based on what they think about movie celebrities. Me, I'm thinking your elaborate story about Brad Pitt is 100% your own world, so your behavior seems really bizarre to people who live in a different world than you. I can't give any thoughts on transitioning from that one, to this one, but I hope you can figure out how to do it.
Why are sex movies so taboo but horror movies so accepted?
MarkiusMahamius comments on Apr 5, 2019:
Horror/violence: people still leave the theater in an onderly fashion. Sex: People get all turned on and do sex things, and make messes. Add that under our founding puritanical and even later protestant beliefs, public displays of horror violence and miserym are ok, but public displays of anything that involves joy or pleasure, is sinful.

MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 31, 2019:
Somewhere in that rant you probably hit upon some truths, but you buried them under anger and frothiness. There's lots of things about transexuality that aren't understood. Yeah there are activists on both sides who are at least as angry and frothy as you are. Yeah ideologues are jerks. I'm missing the part about how your day to day life is affected in any way, by people who want to change themselves. If you had a interesting dilemma about a person at your work place was choosing something that actually affected you in any way, or how an activist group had unfairly targeted you, or even why you hate parades, it'd be an actual discussion. Instead, it sounds like you're responding to some click bait "us v them" news article. All i know, is the IT guy at my office, used to be the IT lady. All is well. I am not going to try to do a compare and comtrast between that and the westboro Baptists, or corrupt police, or or or. YMMV

Is searching for a person that checks off 6 out of 10 boxes in my book wrong?
MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 30, 2019:
There was a good study about what makes for lasting partnerships, and basically the study backed up all the myths about compatibility, and also all the myths about about differences. It backed up the ideas about spending time together, and also spending time apart. Because, the study found that the only thing that really mattered, was kindness. You can't have a check list for that. Outside of obvious hard limits like smoking (for some people) or way of life issues, I think you are right... you're never going to create the right list, and you're much more likely to find someone you get along with, by evaluating their "way they are". Which means work, in person. The list is just a vague screening tool.

MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 29, 2019:
Id like to propose that anyone who posts (groups or forums) more than a post an hour, needs to rank their posts so number one gets released first, number two and hour later, the next an hour after that... And no one can post more than say, 10 things per day. It's incredibly annoying to deal with the groups posts cluttering up the main feed... Totally belies the point of groups... But if we have to know what the cat memes group is up to, at least keep it to a dull roar.
Just curious. Why do people want points here? Is there some massive prize or is it pseudo status?...
MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 29, 2019:
When you first sign up, you get messages from admin about points and status and levels and privileges . Its not till later you realize how stupid it is. Also admin bothers to maintain a site support forum, but looking back at it, there's post after post about people losing several thousand points at a time (not the little ups and downs that happen when a member quits or such). It sounds like som e off those members are pissed about the points, and some about the lack of response.
Yes you do!
MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 29, 2019:
If everyone had happiness, then everyone would be the same- and happiness would become mediocrity. Happiness can't exist without some sense of what misery is all about. For everyone who "deserves" a lifetime of happiness, there has to be someone who has a life time of misery, so that the happy person can feel better about themselves. There is no one who "deserves" that. Self superior new age BS.

Im pretty sure most of us have access to facebook if we enjoy that stuff. Some of us want to escape/ do better I was going to try to answer this, about the onslaught (mostly from a few members) of memes on this site in particular, but there are already lots of great answers here. Worth reading, for actual real live people saying things that are relevant to them. I only want to add that so many "feel good" memes are about having low expectations. E.g. "don't try to be a better person, just be who you are." And though it's less common here then FB, I'll double complain about the guilt trips and compliment-fishing. "Share this if you love puppies" or "I bet this picture of my new garden won't get any likes". We're like Catholics wallowing in our misery and mediocraty.

MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 27, 2019:
@steve148 btw id loove to hear about any site with a competent admin, thats not over run with ads and with scammers, isnt heavily moderated by PC police and user lead lynch mobs, and has some semblance of privacy. I can't believe I'm basically saying good things about this site, but here I am. I don't know why admin adds features to this site that don't work, like points that change for no reason, or dating matches that don't makes sense, or agnostic/humanist log ins, or groups that spam other members... But it is what it is. There are some decent pre built social sites that are cheap/free, so the only major overhead would be hiring a good admin team, paying for server space, paying for people to hang out and start in interesting discussions, and paying for advertising. I'm not sure how this site deals with those costs, but it's be great if you find a better version of this site/concept, and let us know.

MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 25, 2019:
I'm never quite sure how this whole thing works because it seems like I see different content based on how I'm logged in (agnostic vs humanist), how the person I'm talking to is logged in, if the post is a group post and the person who created it is "sharing" (gag) with the rest of the site, which platform the group/forum content originated on... add that I have no idea how blocking really works or doesn't work, so I'm pretty clueless about how to control my own content or who to respond to about anything, and I'm guessing I'm not alone.

Your permissions on each portal are different (uness you accept the default settings) PLUS if you were responding to someone else's thread who has different settings for each portal, the way you will see their posts, is different on each site. They "own" their posts, so theirmsettings override yours.

MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 23, 2019:
It's basically unavoidable. There are deep dives you can use on your phone to block some of this geo tracking and data mining, but Google and Yahoo and FB and a zillion content scraping sites are working hard to subvert any attempt you make at not being an advertising target. There are also phones that are specially designed to be harder to "hack" (you have more control over app permissions, encryption, etc...) But they get really hard to use, if you want to use any free social media apps. All of those apps make a living off of selling your info. So the privacy settings on your phone would be in direct conflict with what most of us use phones for.

Is there a button I missed that keeps new posts from groups I don't belong to off my main feed?
MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 23, 2019:
I was wondering about this too. I see huge numbers of posts from a member, (who I'm not following), made to groups I'm not in. I'm thinking when someone creates a group post, than can also "share it" publicly. But I can't respond to those posts because I'm not a member of the group I can't customize my public feed (as far as i know) Because those are public posts (even tho theyre also group posts), the only way (I think) I can stop it, is by blocking that member. And because that member posts so much stuff, if i blocked them, it would really mess up my ability to see and comment on conversations I am involved in, or groups I am involved in, because we do have some overlap. I just want to be able to see other things besides a wall of one members stuff. What am I missing?

Now that the Mueller report is finished, can the idiot Democrats finally accept that Trump is ...
MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 22, 2019:
Honestly, that's unlikely. Add: It'd also be nice if the idiot republicans would let the dems do theirs. It'd also be nice if the idiot voters would stop voting for idiots. I think Mueller may be the smartest person in the room.

Is there a group regarding men's rights?
MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 22, 2019:
I can see why some men feel opressed by their emotions. It's really hard for most of us to accept how broken we have become, and it seems like the older you are, the more it's piled up. Everyone has a right to pursue happiness for themselves, I like lifting weights.
i thought this was an alternative dating site; but it's more like a facebook....!.....lots of women ...
MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 22, 2019:
I think women are lik e that in real life too. Now that I'm thirty I think I'm starting to figure a few things out. But yeah this isn't like most sites where people just write profiles and see how they match up

Memes of skinny white girls doing yoga, have finally surpassed wrinkled high cheekboned natives... But the quotes seem the same.
Why am I always hungry?
MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 22, 2019:
Increasing my healthy fats like nuts and avocados and fatty fish, has helped me get leaner overall, without getting hungry. Diabetes runs in my family so I'm interested in staying lean, plus LGN look good naked
Any females looking to be in a poly relationship?
MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 22, 2019:
I've met women who enjoy being part of these kinds of relationships, but they are almost unapproachable. I think they pick and choose.
I began talking to a woman on this site last spring and we met in person 5 weeks later. We met 3 ...

I've heard great stories, that started off just like yours. But it sounds like they continued and yours didn't. I wouldn't look at this a dead end, but a very strong hint that you need to back up and see if you can reestablish your friendship/interest. If you can't, or if going backwards isn't your thing, then I guess you should decide about that "friend zone " thing.
I’ve been in a relationship with a single mother for nearly 3 years now and her grown up children ...

You're filling a predefined space in her life. It is a known size... If it doesn't seem to be a good fit for you, I doubt you can do much to change that.

Most people are proud of their ethnic cultural background and how it's shaped them, and of course some people want to maintain purity within their gene pool. Not my preference, but I think its a valid choice that some people want to make. More power to em. Gives me more information about my choices.
Update on the man who was a little "off" on the phone. Ok. I gave him a couple chances. He did ...
MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 17, 2019:
A really good reason to just meet and talk. Phone and email conversation is much easier to misinterpret or misrepresent. Don't create obstacles where there are none. Don't have a formal date, just a meet and greet.

MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 16, 2019:
Nope. It's kinda funny how people with "past" lives always end up being what they want to be in this life.

If this God did exist CRPS (Cosmic Racial Protective Services) would have removed the Jews from his care and placed them in the care of a foster God for their own protection after the garden of Eden fiasco. Who leaves the tree of knowledge unlocked let alone let's the kids play in the same room with it when the gods gone to the store for smokes?
If you say you are 100 percent certain there is no god, doesn’t this saddle you with a burden of ...
MarkiusMahamius comments on Mar 15, 2019:
There are infinite make believe things. I don't need to iteratively disprove them. There's no obligation. Or look at it another way around... prove that the opposite exists, that there is a "higher power". There would some sort of evidence, that's how existence works. No evidence, no existance. Contradiction. That's a valid proof. Also, induction.... To prove that a higher power exists, we would have to accept he idea that the higher power knows everything (Some indefinable number)... so the higher power must know at least some definable number of things too. And then that number minus 1... And so on. So prove the higher power knows even just one thing. Can't be done. That really goes back to contradiction, but the point is that higher power power can't be induced. It's a belief. Last type of proof... deduction. That would require evidence that would make any option but a higher power, impossible. But the whole concept of a higher power is based on accepting the idea that somehow the impossible,is in fact possible. For that to be true, it is necessary that no evidence exists. Therefore by deduction, a higher power can't exist.
