Ummm....maybe because in cases of common sense they articulate better what we already know?

You lack ability to discern nuance in the conversations here.

Paranoia Symptoms
http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhca...
Paranoid symptoms may range from mild to severe. They depend on the cause but, generally, a person who is paranoid may:
Be easily offended
Find it difficult to trust others
Not cope with any type of criticism
Assign harmful meanings to other people’s remarks
Be always on the defensive
Be hostile, aggressive and argumentative
Not be able to compromise
Find it difficult, if not impossible, to ‘forgive and forget’
Assume that people are talking ill of them behind their back
Be overly suspicious – for example, think that other people are lying or scheming to cheat them
Not be able to confide in anyone
Find relationships difficult
Consider the world to be a place of constant threat
Feel persecuted by the world at large
Believe in unfounded ‘CONSPIRACY THEORIES’.
Another personal attack based on your opinion, meaningless.

outlawed?

Sorry - there is only room for one Ayatollah on this thread, and it appears it is taken by MUQ. If there is ever a vacancy, we can put you on the top of the list.

It's ironic that one of the items on the list I posted was "Be easily offended".

And Christians to be more Christians!!(And Muslims to be true Muslims).
Followers of all religions are guilty. most of them only use their religions as a label.
Majority of them only show a hypocritic link with their religion, hardly anybody follows the real moral teachings of their religious texts.
That is the main reason , why we see so much injustice, violence and lack of peace, both inner and outer in the world.
The more we progress on materialistic front, the more we loose on morality.
I couldnt resist the temptation to take this pot shot at your notion of religiously enforced morality - if only because this type of stuff in the western media is so rare. I assume you do not approve?(I do!)

I dont take handouts. I work to provide services and get paid. If the opportunity was not there, it would be elsewhere. And I would be there as well. Thats what you dont get.

You notion of bias is too expansive. Like I said previously, I pay my taxes and I vote. That gives me a stake in the system. Under your notion, that would also make me biased. Therefore your notion has no explanatory currency. Or as the statisticians might put it, an insignificant r squared.

Try introducing some incorrect edits into a Wiki article and tell me how long your changes last.

My guess is the duration will be measured in minutes.

The duration of an incorrect edit lasts as long as how deep is the knowledge of the mass. It can be in minutes as well as in years.
