Yellodog/ Pattie, a seriously hateful person. She and a few other posters use to antagonize each other for months and months, if not years. Just screaming obscenities and what have you at each other.

She tried to engage me, but I wrote "You and I have nothing to discuss" because she's immune to knowledge and learning. After that, she and I were cool - hardly ever wrote to each other. I posted "happy birthday" when it was her b-day and "enjoy Xmas" and all the niceties I could, but I was mainly happy she just left me alone.

Then she broke that engagement, and said a bunch of meaningless nonsense I've since forgotten.

This new troll certainly targets me, though. But she's not picky, she targets a lot of people. They write the same and they're both incredibly stupid and insane. For me, there's no difference between them, so I'm just going to assume they're the same miserable person. This version is just Patties utterly hateful side, rather than the only slightly hateful side she shows everyone else.

I wonder if she lives off her mother's retirement savings, stays in her house, and just posts this stuff all day?

I assume most atheist participate in the Christmas Holidays even if they donít believe in Christ. Parties, friends, loved ones, oh the little munchkins running and playing. A time to exchange gifts and the hugs & kisses and hot coffee, coco, or what ever warms the soul.
If itís not asking too much, try not to be Mr. Scrooge this Christmas. You wonít crack and break into a million pieces if you say,ďMerry Christmas.Ē Youíll be going by that Salvation Army Kettle. Donít drop in a measly quarter. Stuff at least two or three dollars in.
If your community is having a food drive during the holidays, let go of a few cans for some family that has little to nothing. Some work sites adopt families for Christmas. Think about giving to someone who is less fortunate than yourself.
You should come to Japan. You'd see that the true meaning of Christmas is commerce, commerce, commerce. Now is the time to buy!

All our stupid stores have already begun playing your Christmas music. Very few of them can actually understand the words, but the constant barrage of it all drives me crazy.

Anyways, yeah, Xmas is a time of family and friends. I liked that about Western countries. In Japan, New Years is the most important holiday for family. Xmas is the time when your boyfriend takes you out for a nice dinner, and then you go to a nice hotel to repay him.

Actually, there is plenty of proof that there is no god, at least the ones that have been written about. Their writings contain the proof.

I've got a US friend who will host us this Thursday and we'll also have a great christmas unsullied by any of that churchy nonsense.

I've got no problem saying "Merry christmas" to anyone. It's "Happy holidays" that grates on me.

Tough luck in that first test, mate.

What says you about the rugby? 1)Why on earth did you guys spoil all those kickable penalties, and 2) What in the hell is with the purple strip?

Well done Lewis, shame he's off to Mercedes. Maybe they'll have a good car in 2014 when the regs change...

I give all year round. I don't require a special time of the year to give.

I love christmas! It is one of the best pagan rituals we follow!

You know the routine:

Evergreens in the house = pagan.

Celebrating the Winter Solstice = pagan

So on and so forth...

Xmas has been a secular holiday for a long time and it has never been christian.

We are set up for a thriling climax. I have a soft spot for Alonso - the guy that dethroned King Schumacher will always have my support.

You didn't watch the rugby? Missed a number of good games. New Zealand's second team found going surprisingly tough against Italy, Ireland destroyed Fiji, Scotland rallied from 18 points down to give the Boks a scare, Australia inched out the English, France had too many guns for Argentina, and Samoa beat Wales in Cardiff, my choice for game of the weekend.
