"Your adeptness at pointing out a 'simple-minded person' reminds me of an
old Irish proverb, "It takes one to know one." This list is for those
interested in discussing ancient Celtic civilization, which happened long
before the 'creation' of Islam. While we do delve deep into the mythologies
of the Irish, Scottish, Welsh and Norse - other works of historical fiction,
such as the Koran, are better discussed other places. If I've
misinterpreted your email its because I didn't read it thouroughly and I
don't care what you're talking about. In the future, please exercise
caution about sending out mass-mailers, especially to a people who are
historically infamous for cordially telling people to 'piss off.'
Ya know, folks, while Fatima's spam to the list was of course highly
inappropriate, I don't think that ANY inflammatory rhetoric of a religious
nature is going to do much to improve the tone of the list. Celtic peoples,
and indeed the rest of the world have enough of that to deal with. In my
opinion, ALL personal religious beliefs are better discussed other places.
Additionally, regardless of the spam issue, we should be encouraging
diversity and tolerance, not slagging off other people's sacred texts. It's
just not cool.
