http://www.sciforums.com/threads/sociobiological-theories-of-rape.142978/page-2 was this closed? I suppose that when entering any form of discussion regarding a closed thread, one does tend to enter the realm of the rhetorical. In most cases, it's simply a matter of a little light reading, when one seeks to determine why a thread has been closed to begin with. In this case, however, I'm completely at a loss. Well, actually... you know, that's not quite true. I do know why. I also find it so terribly difficult to accept. Consider that "at a loss" comment to be there only for theatrical effect... if you will. A man goes away for a few days, comes back, wanders through a forum and finally, finally, finds something worth chewing on. Worth a few moments consideration. Only to find that the tone was set in the very first reply. One intellectual lightweight with an offhand comment sets the scene for further discourse, and all that follows goes exactly according to plan. You know... I had so much to say here. I've been out on my balcony several times now. Out there, a cigarette in one hand, drink in the other. Gazing out over the landscape. Words forming, being dismissed, gathering again. What I was going to say to you all. What I might have said in reply to this thread, had it not been closed. There have been, in this little microcosm, some very unique and remarkable minds. Names which still ring to this day, among those who knew them. Those names have all, in time, been driven away. All we have left now is pjdude1219. ................. I don't actually remember what it is I was going to say, in reply to that opening post. And to a few after it. There isn't any point in remembering, really. This is your achievement, Sciforums. Dolly magazine. I suppose you can at least claim you made a profit. Such a pity that goes against all stated intention. Oh, and... what happened with the lightweight? Nothing. Nothing at all.
