I won't comment on my views here. I've found that in other topics here, there are some posters that come for a specific poster or group of posters regardless of topic. Due to myself being in the crosshairs of one such poster, I'm going to be scarce here.

However... I have a second observation in these forums. Often people will challenge, assault, or mock other posters views without owning up to their own views. Having nothing to offer themselves, all they have is to stand against what others offer in conversations.

This topic is my challenge to anyone and everyone. The rule is simple. You are only describing and defining your own views. This means no counter arguments or why you disagree with someone else. Just your own. Whether it's about politics, justice, current events and international stuff, religion, human nature, or just your view of what should be done in the world. It doesn't matter what it is you own up to believing. Only that it is your beliefs or your views that you support, instead of someone else's beliefs and views you stand against. To show your not a hollow troll only here to throw potshots at others. Tell something that you believe. Tell at least one of your views that matters to you.

Basically, I believe in peace and bashing two bricks together.

Toni, looking good there son, was that one of your more lucid moments. The hanky on the head really sets you off splendidly.

I believe for every drop of rain that falls a flower grows!

If anyone can give me a few more lines, I have a little tune in my head and I could possibly write a hit song.

"Tell something that you believe." What is the point? This is a Opinion Forum, just stating a belief and not engaging in debate or discussion about it seems pointless. "This means no counter arguments or why you disagree with someone else"

Okay play your game NNS.

I believe God does not exist.

Now where to on that. Nowhere.

I believe tomatoes are vegetables even though everybody says they're really fruit.

Yes, I support the overall context of this post. It is something I feel very strongly about and in principle I agree with. I am not going to target any person here, but to people who do not put forward a new discussion or post, I encourage these people to put forward a post of their own.

I've seen excuses from some and why they do not post, but I still encourage these people to stand up to the challenge of putting forward a post on this website.

It's not difficult.

I even appreciate those, who may only may post a few times, throughout a particular year. I see very different topics put forward online, and this is good in the context that the topic can be very fresh and if anything, quite refreshing in nature.

To those who don't post, I don't want these people forced into taking such action. It is something that needs to come from within ones own self.

I think this overall topic though is something for all to consider who put forward a position via this website.

An interesting challenge, Not_Now.Soon. I hope those to whom your post is directed take up your challenge.

In the meantime, Iíd like to give it a crack if you donít mind. Having posted on OLO for over ten years, itís been hard to think of a view that I have not yet expressed and had challenged, but I think Iíve finally thought of one:

Since the invention of the printing press and the emergence of largely literate populations, I believe that the art of poetry and its critiquing has devolved into little more than a pompous display of pretentiousness. I believe the Ern Malley affair was a good demonstration of this.
