    Been checking in to see if fdchow had any response to his ridiculous accusation. I see he's been on, but no response.

    Wait, how do you know about my other user name? Nah, you don't know, you'd have jumped on that by now.

    As for me posting in your threads - I really don't care what you say anymore. I really see you as a fairly sad human being with emotional problems, stalker-like tendencies, and who knows what else. You clearly not a happy person. I hope you find a path to being a more fulfilled.

    Do you even know what a double standard is?

    It does seem like you know what a circle jerk is though. I give you credit for that.

    Yeah, do that... and you'll find that we had non-denominational Judeo-Christian prayer is our public schools for DECADES before it was removed. What did that little move improve?

    Yeah, I said that it was a typo in the thread. Adding an "s" by mistake - which is plausible and not the same as completely fabricating something with a totally b.s. headline.

    You are comparing apples and oranges here. Double standard? No. You are simply circle jerking which is fine, it's how guys like you, Space Ghost, and ATW get your rep because it's definitely not coming from quality posts made about basketball.

    When your house guest thinks he owns the place it's time to get him out by any means necessary.

    It's like the guy who is squatting in Jerod's apartment in Silicon Valley and Europe is Jarod. It's pathetic.

    No way. Did you just bring up circle jerks and rep Mr Moses Malone? LMAO.

    If you want to bring up basketball, take it to the basketball forum. However, I don't feel the need to armchair QB on a forum when I've coached a HS basketball team from October through February for the past 22 years.

    It wasn't the typo, although I am sure it wasn't a typo. It was the use of the word "banned". Apparently Sweet Lou has a different definition of the word banned.

    A single instructor willingly to not use a certain word during an instruction practice is considered "banning" to Sweet Lou, despite anyone else in that school can use it at anytime.

    WOW! Are you really focusing on peoples rep AND calling them out on how they get it? Who really cares about rep points, much less how you get them.

    No, the article stated the word was banned - a school isn't going to just stop one instructor from using one word, it's going to prevent the entire staff from using that word. Don't be ridiculous. You've been disingenuous as best here.

    And let's get back on topic, how can you agree with a thread title that is just a complete lie in the fact that it's saying these guys want to turn the entire university into a mosque when they are just asking for a space to pray? That's incredibly xenophobic and disturbing. To defend that is to share in the xenophobia and I am not surprised the right-wing nut jobs are the ones coming to the defense of it.

    I dont disagree. The thread title is not accurate.

    If I prove that only one instructor agreed not to use the word Namaste during practice/instruction, will you agree your thread title is no different?

    The difference is that I had no intention of misleading anyone or reinterpreting an article to be something else in that thread. With this thread title - it is a blatant intention to mislead and stir up trouble. There is a difference. You can say both are inaccurate - but to say they are inaccurate in the same way is not something I'd agree with.

    What exactly is inaccurate about the thread title? I guess it's "part of" the University of Berlin into a mosque. Slightly shortened by whoever titled it that, for effect. So what?

    How is protesting against a prayer room being closed the same as wanting to turn a university into a mosque?

    Headline: Apple Preparing to Stop Selling iPhones
    vs.
    Headline: Apple Preparing to Stop Selling iPhones in Rose Gold Color

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that the "part of" from the original article and "Rose Gold Color" from my example are prepositional phrases. And that's what qualifies the statement and gives it context.

    Did you really need that explained to you?

    They DEMAND a prayer room in a publicly funded, secular institution. People can go to the mosque to pray, if they feel the need to do so. A prayer room serves the same purpose. How is DEMANDING a prayer room in a secular, publicly funded institution for a specific religious ideology not turning that room de facto into a mini-mosque? Prayer room and mosque serve the same purpose, no?

    Why do you argue about semantics (I know why, but...)? Do you think they should be provided a prayer room by the university? If yes, why?

    No, because it's an idiotic example. Are you an idiot? Do I need to explain it to you again?

    No... It's the type of example used to explain basic sentence structure to elementary level students. So that they can understand it.

    Are there any Kindergarten or Pre-K teachers here that can maybe explain this to ATW on a more remedial level?

    It's a completely idiotic example that has nothing to do with the thread or the thread title. I asked if you are an idiot. You have answered the question. Thank you.
