Do you mean they stayed at RDF?

I have enrolled both here and at Rational Skepticism. What is the difference? Is one more agreeable to RDFugees than the other? I would rather focus my attention on one unless there is a clear difference of focus. EG, one of the things I liked about RDF was its non-Americentricity. Does either of these share that admirable trait? Obsex: do they have different policies on sex?
RatSkep is more like how RDF was Ratz is more laid back, less formal, more open to things like sexual discussion.

Both approaches are just fine with me. I like it here, I like it there. I have friends here, I have friends there, and many are members of both. There are some arseholes here, there are some arseholes on ratskep.

I don't think there needs to be any us & them shit. Both places complement each other nicely imo.

Cunt wrote:I chose 'Pudendum' as my alternate. Now, it has only one meaning in English. (though in it's original Latin it meant 'shame')
Actually, pudendum means "that thing of which one ought to be ashamed" - wonderfully compact language, Latin, sometimes. pud[ere], [to be] ashamed; -end-, the gerundive, implying obligation; -um, neuter singular noun, hence "thing". But it doesn't have a gender, so the word for your name is pudendum muliebre, which I admit is much less concise - and of course it absolutely trashes your intention.

I am not actually ready to use the c-word myself, because I gather most women particularly dislike it, and/because it's part of our historic misogyny that it's so much stronger than its equivalent, prick.

Thanks for your explanations, Thinking aloud and CJ. I think I'll keep both memberships too. Not sure if I'll abandon RDF, but I suspect it will waste away a lot.

It's quite a metaphor - cancer, AIDS, apoptosis (lizards losing their tails), swarming. I wonder how RD would describe it?

The difference between the two is that Rats is like Old School OT spread out over an entire forum, while RatSkep is like RD without OT, and with MOAR Gallstones.

Who, coincidentally, is precisely as painful to deal with as his namesake.

Gallstones is female.

Amazingly enough, I've had no issues with Gall over at RatSkep so far. :o

Valden and born-again atheist, Actually, I happen to like Gallstones very much. If you get to know that person better, you'll find that they are no-bullshit, and they are very much in touch with such things as nature, art and beauty.

Why is this topic still being discussed?
I'm wild just like a rock, a stone, a tree
And I'm free, just like the wind the breeze that blows
And I flow, just like a brook, a stream, the rain
And I fly, just like a bird up in the sky
And I'll surely die, just like a flower plucked
And dragged away and thrown away
And then one day it turns to clay
It blows away, it finds a ray, it finds its way
And there it lays until the rain and sun
Then I breathe, just like the wind the breeze that blows
And I grow, just like a baby breastfeeding
And it's beautiful, that's life
