Sometime back I requested to NOT have posts show up in my email messages. I still get the email messages but only from the thread "what did you do today". I've searched but cannot understand why I get those emails. I prefer NOT to receive these emails. Can you stop them? Thanks.

Ah, but most Christians are atheists--concerning the Hindu gods, the Homeric gods, and the hundreds of other gods of human theology. So, except for a few deists, Unitarians, and a few others with nonspecific and unexclusive views of what this supernatural entity might be, almost everyone is an atheist (with regard to most of tyhe proposed gods).

I agree with FUEGO's approach. Many rationalists use the shorthand label "atheist" in common discussion, but would choose "agnostic" if engaged in a rigorous discussion that dealt with degree of observable evidence. For what it is worth, I think most atheists have given this subject (the existence of god) at least as much careful, critical thought as the average religious person has given it.

BTW, there's a good deal of debate among nonbelievers in how best to "come out of the closet" in a Christian/religious-dominated culture. Some favor a confrontational "we're not going to be quiet anymore, get your theology out of government, religion is killing hundreds of throusands of people every year" stance. Another faction sees this as counterproductive and instead want to emphasize that fact that lack of religious faith does not result in amorality and that atheists have made/continue to make many positive contributions to society. I'm in the second camp, but there are times (e.g. religiously-motivated mass killings) that should make everyone consider the impact of various beliefs--and the impact to society of giving people a pass for disregarding reason in favor of texts they believe to be the revealed word of a diety. Once we accept supernatural communication as a valid means of choosing an action, I don't know how we get to rule on which supernatural communications are valid and which are invalid.
Why didn't I see the 2nd and 3rd paragraphs in the original post?

Looks like Samclem edited the post to add the other paragraphs. You probably hit the quote button while he was doing this.

Yep, sorry. I was busy "revising and extending my remarks."
For whatever reason, my spellchecker (in Firefox) doesn't always catch typos when I am making a new post. When I submit the post and go back to the thread, the typos are identified. So, I sometimes re-open the post to fix it. Well, heck, while I'm there another thought occurs to me, and the typing begins . . .So, I'm, blaming Firefox for all of this.

You can't do this with the "preview post" button?

I'll check when I am next using Firefox. I'm at a hotel computer now with IE (ughh) and there's no spell check turned on at all.

If just finished posting a message using the quick reply box and then immediately go to edit my message, the row of buttons below the edit box doesn't show a submit, save, or send button. It shows a vote button which does the same thing as saving the edit.

After some digging, we are finding reports of similar issues with both safari and chrome browsers on vbulletin forums. Still looking for a solution....

Just a few minutes ago while I was online, the screen froze. When I clicked my back button, the only thing that showed was the information above the "blue bar"...underneath there was just a blank screen.

When I clicked on portal, forums, etc...I still had the blank page. I tried AT&T yahoo and Internet Explorer...they both showed the same strange page. I know it's not a problem with my computer as I was able to bring up other sites.

Yep...I'm the lucky one.

I did get a bit of a thrill when I wrote the word "froze"...considering it's 102 here. Ahh...but that's another thread....

Just got a new desktop. Gave the computer guru a list of everything I wanted to save and he put all that stuff onto the new computer. He built the computer and it has WindowsXP which I wanted. Now it seems like some things are difficult fo find. Ex: When I used to write a letter, there was a block off to the left side where I could address envelopes, send it to the printer and print the envelope. You think I can find it now? No way. Searched everywhere. I've already called him on a couple problems which he told me how to solve over the phone. Don't want to call him again on something that may be very simple. Any hints?

had invalid security certificate message when attempting to post a quick reply.

I see the Portal page topic column centered in v2.0. It's difficult for me to read...

Here's an interesting anomaly: search appears to be broken.

Choose "Search | Advanced search"

Pick a keyword (like "Nords") and "Search Entire Posts".
Leave "User Name" blank.
Set "Find Threads with" on "At Least" and "0" replies,
"Find Posts from" on "A Week Ago" with "and Newer",
"Sort Results by" on "Last Posting Date" and "in Descending Order",
then "Show Results as" on the "Posts" radio button.
Leave "Search by Tag" blank
and set "Search in Forum(s)" to "Search All Open Forums".

That's the default search I've saved to review the last week of threads and see if I've missed responding to a post. I usually get 1-25 hits on it, but for the last couple weeks I've been getting over 800 posts going back to May 2009.
