Yeah.  One of the reasons I wanted to post here was that MLW became all-Muslims-all-the-time with really nothing new being said.

Do you think there is a reason for that?  Other than the pat leftist one?

If Muslims make the news every day doing the same things, what can be said that is new?

The death penalty for blasphemy is primitive and barbaric every day of the week.

Yes, probably many reasons.  Muslims 'making the news' also happens for many reasons.

Of course I think this is all overblown, but let's just talk about the fact that we have to have multiple threads on basically the same topic all the time ok ?

I suppose it's because thread starters like to start threads.  It's the same with many subjects.  The US, Trump, Climate Change, etc.  If people have a point to make about something that just happened, they might not want to dig up an old thread and post in that.

Ok, I click on the 'new posts'... 3 threads seem to be about Muslims.... moderator?

I believe this has happened because certain individuals insist on writing "Argus is a bad guy who did not love the Islams" in every thread SirJohn posts in.  Threads will keep drifting the same direction as long as those individuals keep doing that.

I actually commented about this on the thread drift topic - about how somehow a topic on thread drift had drifted into a talk about Muslims - well, actually about ME and Muslims, but still... The gender thread drifted in much the same way. The one in Thread drift was actually drifted, er, by the moderator... post 238. Gender culture was cybercoma #127. This one also by cybercoma #37.

I personally don't see a problem with letting the discussion flow.  If you want to talk about something else, feel free to start a new thread.

On the other hand, there is an all purpose Muslim thread - I started it.

Sometimes it feels like every thread is about that.

And for those who will immediately jump in and say it's my fault I make two points.

1.  I am blunt and pull few punches in how I describe things. Many people aren't used to that and take great offense, mostly on behalf of others. Tough.
2.  As long as you don't make the topic about ME I will not make the topic about YOU. If you think my opinion is wrong, well, I'm entitled to it. If you think my facts are wrong, then post something that shows that. If you think I'm evil I think you're a moron. If you keep your mouth shut about your assessment of my morality I will keep my mouth shut about my assessment of your immaturity and intelligence.
