There are a number of Hub authors writing specifically only Anti-religious extremist hubs. Technically this is "anti religious trolling". How can we ban them? Should there be a limit on the number of Anti-religious extremist hubs for any one individual? For example, if a person has ten hubs and 50% or more are anti-religious should this be the definition of trolling on HP?
sort by best latest
I get all the religious hubs. None of them are hubs solely denigrating atheists. On the other hand there is a plethora of solely anti religious hubbers. There needs to be a cut off point in the number of such solely "anti religious hubs"
I get all the religious hubs. There is not one hubber solely doing anti atheist hubs. On the reverse side there are dozens of solely anti religious hubbers! There needs to be a rule against solely anti religious hubbers.
Can we also get a rule against solely religious hubbers? This is supposed to be a community of writers, not of people who copy and past bible verses all the time.
It's not about that it's about specifically and persistent anti religious hubs. There are no persistently anti atheist hubbers only religious people writing religiously hubs about religion.
Ah, but is it merely because you disagree with them Oz, or are they actually offensive? Because if it's the first - u can't ban, if it's the 2nd - report. Surprised u haven't already if they are the 2nd, so I'm gathering they're the 1st.
Repeated online anti religious or other types of trolling are regularly banned or punished. That's common knowledge. I'm claiming there is one particular group which is injecting unecessary venom into the HP community as logical analysis shows.
The provide a link to the hubs or hubbers. Report them yourself. It's terribly simple. HP will delete if violates. If not deleted, not violating. if it's just because you disagree that its venomous they'll see that 2. Goes 4 religious hubs doing same
It's against hub rules to name names. The reason more hubs aren't deleted is another question ("fools walk where angels fear to tread"....proverb)
Then report - and it will be judged as to whether you just offended cause you disagree, or whether it's actually offensive and against TOS.
I am responding to the same theme on Q&A re religion. We need to get away from religion as solely "right wing USA Christian". All indigenous cultures' identities are part of their religion. To try to destroy them is cultural genocide.
You seem to have the same crusader type of answer for everyone who responds. If a person is against organized religion, then they are entitled to write about it in any way they choose as many times as they want to.
If you check HP rules this is not technically true if the hubs contain nothing but vilification. There are specific rules stopping anti religious or other trolling
So don't read them - are you afraid someone else's opinion might be read before yours?
I often don't read them unless I feel I can add logically to the debate. I'm not interested in contests about "who's on first " etc
Ok I had a look and I'll "wait and see". I'm busy anyway milking the venom out of some snakes in (or on?) the grass. Perhaps I'm in battle mode. Time to crack a few jokes elsewhere.
Atheism is the lack of a belief in god. In promoting atheism, you are telling people to NOT belive in god. Any reason we could possibly use, any fallacy we could point out, any way promote atheism would require some degree of religious vilification.
We need to get away from stereotyping religion as "right wing USA". There are many positive examples of Indigenous religions, Buddhism, etc. Stereotyping is related to bigotry, hate speech and religious intolerance.
Very true, point taken. I used it as the most common example of extremist views here on HP. I have not seen examples of extreme Buddhism or Hinduism here. Just wanted to be clear.
Thanks. My point is valid when not being misrepresented by as usual a majority of online atheists as seen here. Let them extol atheism to their hearts content. Why constant anti religious hubbers are tolerated by HP is another question.
Maybe it's my ability to think laterally & see more than one point to topics. I've seen a plethora of bible quoting hubs that were in effect insulting atheists, also Buddhists and Hindus. I thought HP was taken over by a church at one point.
Here is my hub on atheism which Defends ethical atheism!
Yes I've seen unkind remarks about atheists (free speech ) but not continuous numerous repeated hub themes
You keep going on about these hubs but have not provided a link to anyone's bar your own. Link a hub or hubber that does what you think they're doing, and let us have a look - may even help by reporting it if it's violated TOS etc.
Maybe this is a way for people to read HER thread..,.,sounds hypocritical
It's certainly against hub rules to name individuals. We all know them anyway as individuals who focus on solely anti religious hubs. Do you just hit me with a flower?
It's not about "stupid" religious hubs and you know it. It's about persistent anti religious trolling hubs. Huge difference. Religious hubs are just about religion not persistent anti atheist hubs.
Oz, your attempts to label anti-theist hubs as "trolling" only reveal the hatred you have for them. You don't like the subject matter so you mislabel it in order to degrade it. You should really get a grip.
think about it: it's fine with hub rules if people extol the virtues of atheism; it's not fine to denigrate others as that's not simply extolling atheist virtues. It's against HP rules.
Writing against a belief system is not against HP rules.
Here is a link to my hub on atheism which Defends ethical atheism!
Best answer so far!
The battle invigorates me ;) and I can add significantly to the debate. Constant anti religious hubs by a few are injecting enormous amounts of venom into HP.
If you don't like the venom, don't touch the snake! Just because it's on the website, doesn't mean that you need to read it!
I often don't but if I feel I can add to the debate I enter it. It's the good fight like Frodo against the Orcs: the perennial battle between right and wrong.
Yes we can write a million hubs on cakes or judo etc. Religious people generally sing the praises of their beliefs. If an atheist wrote a million hubs singing the praises of Atheism that's fine but they don't do that.
YES!! For once, something that me and Lolita can agree on!
I've actually seen hp get rid of such hubs
