    My observations of recent forum activity has caused me to conclude that this has been going on for quite awhile.

    What war is that? Reclamation of HP.

    What am I talking about? Who knows. Who cares. For those who aren't involved, peace reigns.

    I only care about which titles are shoved in my face everyday.

    For new titles, I will participate in this war. It does not matter which side the title represents.

    [An Edit: Apparently, obliqueness is not allowed here based on all the responses to my OP. I shall spell it out: The religionists took over HubPages sometime ago. “Everyone” else has decided to take it back.]

      Hi paradigmsearch.
      Very observant.
      But...reclamation suggests that there was a specific base that got "taken over".  What was that base?   And what is a "religionist"?
      And do you see the "war" as literal or figurative?  a war of words, of will, of politics, or of spirits?

      Just asking, as your post is very interesting and I hope you'll elaborate on your viewpoint?

    Are you not the one who started this thread?

    Does the title not say "A War in Progress"?

    Therefore, you are starting a War. And, it's obvious that you've already chosen a side, it's just not been said what side you're on or what the war is truly about. tongue

            Are you sure your perception is correct? Or are you just deceiving yourself into believing you are correct?

              I am not sure how to proceed on this...

              Should I spell out what I meant by:

              “What war is that? Reclamation of HP.”

              ?

                    No War of Reclamation on HP, just a bunch of delusional people running around talking about having a relationship with a god that they themselves cannot prove is in existence. lol

      This reads like a war between the OP and the OP statement. Can anyone else join?

    I do not want any political or religious group to take over HP and call it their home. smile

    Don't think that will ever really happen. Too much diversity of opinion between hubbers.

  9. paradigmsearch profile image89

    Agreed. And we need to make darn sure it stays that way. smile

      Yep, only been here a few months and way too much religion and political ideology. Although, I have to say, I've been far from neutral with regards the latter. However, learning my lesson, political forums are not good for the old blood pressure.

  10. paradigmsearch profile image89
    paradigmsearchposted 7 years ago

    Political forums have never been a problem for me.

    It's the religion forums and their obnoxious titles being shoved in my face every day that wears on me over time.

      Hollie Thomasposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah, I get that too. I look at the title and think errr. No, or errr yes. Because they honestly, IMHO, don't deserve a full sentence answer. The questions are too silly.

    I don't think I've ever seen the forums this dead before. smile
