    That makes sense. That's sort of where I figured, but I also thought that you could work in a church or something. Well, that's restrictive! I could never work in a place that didn't allow me to express my opinions freely when I wanted to. How do you do it?

    I have no problem with that, since politics and religion are subjects I naturally avoid in conversations, because I know they can cause outrages. And I don´t like unnecessary conflicts.

    I have my own political views, but I prefer to keep them to myself. As for religion, I´m agnostic. I can say that freely, but not make any judgements.

    I generally keep my more controversial opinions to myself, but I'm sort of afraid that I might seek out opportunities to debate them if I know I'm not allowed. I just don't hold well to restrictions on my speech and thought.

    i basically just comment the same i would in person. if someone is talking about something i have a comment on i say it otherwise i don't. i rarely even notice what subforum i'm in because i always go to new posts. i don't care about derails because it's just like real life conversation. you start out talking about something and the conversation goes in other directions.

    i don't like to type so in person my comments would be a lot longer.

    I found this thread earlier then decided to think about my response and then when I came back to post I couldnt find the thread and was disappointed.

    For me I think it relates to E in my type and its feeling compelled to my the case in topics of interest to me for my own views or to investigate other views to see how they measure up in the pursuit of the good, the true, the beautiful.

    Also I like to relate to others, forums is one way. In fact its easier because I find communities of people online who are totally unlike people in real life.

    Topic and what input i have toward it.
    Usually, i stick around the NF Idyllic, Bonfire, Relationships, and Sexuality subforums. I'll branch off if i'm feeling brave or have expanded some horizons.
    I also don't quote others in threads too frequently. I'm not sure why, but i've meant to do so more.

    When I have something I feel like saying, either to have people see another perspective not covered yet, or because I'm curious about whot the response will be.

    If I am interested in talking only to a single person, that usually ends up being sent as a reputation message, since the reputation meter is disabled on the forum, so it's really not useful for anything but short messages to one person XD

    Whot makes me read a certain post, is generally just if it sounds interesting. If I post, it's for the above reasons. I'm fairly relaxed in it, and lately have been avoiding the flaming matches that have occured more frequently in the recent past.
