    I place a greater value on pithiness than I do pedantic, long-winded, replies. Now, I am certainly capable of such, mind you, but being able to say much with a few words is a talent I value much more than I do saying little with much.

    It depends on what I'm debating and who I'm debating. Some people just aren't worth wasting the brain power on, some subjects aren't really worth seriously considering and especially in the polls forum, some things just aren't all that mentally stimulating or taxing. I give it the attention each subject deserves, no more, no less.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I put all my effort in to every post. Now research... that's another story. Sometimes the peak of my effort is simply a sarcastic retort.

    It depends on the subject and topic.... it also makes a difference if its a new thread or a reply.

    How much 'research' fact finding and mental effort do you put into your average post on a 1-5 scale?

    (I'm not saying my posts are empty insult, sometimes I'm just not spurred by the debate)
    I am the same way. In some ways, the idea that every idea is worth listening to and debating irritates me. Some things are obviously stupid and we should, at times, call a spade a spade.

    I really wasn't being that serious.

    But I can be.

    I'm glad your mother sobered up, serious.

    Depends on my sanity level at the moment.
