    Hi all,

    A little late, but needless to say I'm postin from Australia. Looking for photo of carriers. A little discussion is appreciated, but an open mind is even more so.


    Cheers,
    Jovian

    Hi again Mess,

    I haven't read much of your post, but if I see any I'll certainly be interested in hearing you view. Hope this will not be taken as an insult. I don't believe in God, and have no intention of following any messiah. So, I hope you don't mind me calling you Mess; if you like do call me Jo, my friends commonly do so. Jovian is kind of like a joke, instead of being some from Jupiter :p, I am thinking more inline with Jovial, like the sound of Jovian more so I guess that's why I choose it :D.

    I need no one to bow before me, but I'll only bow before a good argument.


    Best regards and thank you for your welcome,
    Jovian


    PS. someone posted a private message to me buy I am having trouble replying to him. Can you tell me how do I go about replying a private message?
    PSS. I tend to tpye erro ocne too otefn. So my aoplgoy.

    Hi there and Welcome

    Messiah is an atheist, and atheists by definition are pretty awesome, so there shouldn't be any problem.

    Once you click on the message and enter the message, there should be a "reply to private message" option similar to the 'reply' option on the posts here.

    Whatcha smokin' bro...?

    Welcome to DFI Jo!!

    Alternative views are not taken an insult. A discussion/debate with everyone saying the same thing is not a discussion/debate.

    But I do hope you have a thick skin :D

    Hi Jake!

    Thanks for letting me know that Mess is an atheist. I am cool with atheist although I don't like to call myself one. Would like to see others as "people" first before thinking of them as a Hindu, Chiristian, Buddist, etc.

    My apology regarding the "private message" part. Actually someone posted a visitor message. I am hoping to be able to post a reply message. I can't see "reply" button. Can you help?

    As for what I am smoking ... funny stuff :D.
    Actually someone once posted a message to me with most alphabet in words mixed up. Leaving only the first and last letter in the right place. The interesting thing is that I can still read the message. Just trying it out :).

    How are you Yusuf?

    Thanks for the heads up on the requirement for "thick skin" :). In regard to that, I'm afraid I'm not certain. At least I hope my skin has not lost too much of its elasticity now a day.

    Best regards,
    Jo

    Well, I am not so sure about the 'visitor message' thingy but my best guess would be to simply go to his/her 'wall' and post a message. MODS, am I right?

    Yeah I have seen that too.
    The human brain is just amazing.

    Primary requirement Jo of being on any forum is to have a thick skin, particularly of you hold a contrarian view. Ask Messiah about it. His skin is thicker than a buffalo :rofl:

    Okay, I'm at this poster's profile page, and there is the "visitor message" button at the top. Is that his "wall"? I don't see any where to start posting a message. My apology, still trying to figure out my way around here.


    Regards,

    Hi Jake,

    I am so tempted to give up at this point. I can see you message and instruction, but I see no space for typing a message nor a "post message" button. I am really sorry Jake.

    If you don't see a space for typing or a "post message" button then there might be a glitch. Coz I can see them on my profile. Maybe you should message a MOD. pmaitra is a great MOD.

    God is one of my favorite subjects to rant about! I am neither a theist nor an atheist. I am infact an agnostic! I dont like chest thumping atheists either. They are as closed minded as theists. My views are very badly taken by those who are not Indian citizens.

    You can reply by hitting the reply button. If someone has posted a visitors message on your profile and if you want to reply to that post then goto his profile and post a visitors message there.
