Thanks, one trick pony.

When someone relentlessly posts right wing political polemics I grant them the title of "one trick pony".

And yes, the ponies have complained. But they haven't file suit.

Ahh, explained well.  But shouldn't it also apply to the Left?  And noting I am closer to that side...

Do you post any else or just polemics?

I post elsewhere.  Cat blogs, gardening sites, woodworking sites.  And I am left of center.  But in this case I was specifically asking why you thought "one trick pony" only applied to rightists.  Shouldn't it be equally applied to extreme leftists as well?  I do sort of like fairness.

If you mean "do I post theistic views in balance to my atheistic views?", no.  I am utterly, completely, atheist.  If some being claiming to be a deity appeared before me, and expressed my innermost thoughts I would look around for a mind reading device or something.  I consider a deity to be both literally and not logically possible.

Then you aren't a one trick pony. But there's nothing in the definition of a one trick pony about political or religious orientation. It's just a moniker for a boring poster.

Lost your sense of humor.  The Japanese are different.  And since when do you channel Shiranu?

Are you arguing that focusing on atheism on an atheism site is a "one trick"?

How very Trumpian.  I did not mention avatars.
