Having an opinion is not a sin, not on the internet, nor in life, unless your opinion is not politically correct. ACTING ON one that involves harming another person may be.

I am amused at the raft of opinions the left thinks is unsuited for polite discussion. Opposing climate change, advocating self-reliance, opposing gay marriage, being … Read more

I think that telling others they're wrong for having an opinion is a bigger sin than having an opinion. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and shutting people down because of what they say - especially when they haven't done anything wrong - is an awful thing to do, both in real life and … Read more

Of course I find it rude. I will not lie or try to get around a question in anyway. I will simply tell the person asking it is none of their business.

I've never heard of the word 'no' being a sin on the Internet. I'd say having an opinion would be the greatest sin on the Internet. It's the one thing that gets the most comments and responses. For example, if I were to say "I don't believe gays should get married" (not that I believe … Read more

There are many clicks on the internet where having an opinion which isn't in lockstep with the rest of the echo-chamber is a definite sin and treated as heresy.

I have seen this happening for years with the Social Justice movement and third wave feminism. The expression "eating their own" comes to mind. But I think … Read more

Many superstitions have a basis in common sense, not so much "science" per se.

Walking under a ladder is bad luck. Right, it could fall over on you or someone working on it could drop something on you and hurt you.


A broken mirror is 7 years bad luck. They didn't have vacuums, so it probably took … Read more

There are a lot of different areas where it is beneficial. Being well groomed and healthy makes you more likely to get and maintain a job, friends, and relationship. Beyond that, if you are healthy you will feel better and if you are well groomed it can do the same as it typically makes you … Read more

Do you sound like your family has money? Yes. Are you spoiled? I don't know -- signs of being spoiled could include not liking/making fun of people who don't wear or can't afford the clothes you favor, being rude, bullying, feeling entitled to things that others don't have.

Going to a foreign country every year … Read more

It depends on what you mean. Spoiled can be taken two ways, the general way of thinking about being spoiled is more of an attitude. You expect things and feel entitled. When you don't get your way, you may throw a tantrum and get angry. The other is more general, just being someone who is … Read more

There isn't currently a way to "block" other users.

If you unfollow someone, they won't be able to direct message you, but they will still be able to answer your questions or comment on your answers, because the question pages are all public.

However, if you are experiencing issues with unwanted behaviour, the best thing to do … Read more

You don't. People come to God (or don't) on their own.

You can tell them your beliefs about God if they ask, but proselytizing never works, in my opinion.

Also, nothing makes me more certain that there is a God than the number of self proclaimed atheists that spend so much time and energy … Read more
