You still have not told us who you are (you are actually supposed to intro yourself and make 10 posts prior to starting a new thread)--so, an intro would be nice.

I don't understand why do I have to introduce myself (10 posts? Is this a Job interview?) before I can ask a simple question, I never saw that in other forums, what kind of game is this?

I came here to ask a question about something that was interested me, do I have to tell you about my personal life in order to do that? Sorry I don't understand that.

I don't care that the rules of this forum chap your lips or that other forums have different rules.  The rules were not created by me or for me, but by the people who run this forum.  Ask them why they made those rules. 

BTW, why are you so hesitant about introducing yourself and making the point of your post clear?  do you want to have an intelligent conversation or play a game of 'gotcha'?
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

You didn't create the rules but it looks like it's very bothering you. I asked a simple question, introducing myself or my beliefs have nothing to do with that. I don't understand how is it relevant or how will it help you answering my question.

for a troll, it would be a problem I guess.

Asking a question about atheism in an atheism forum is trolling? Are you listening to the nonsense that you are talking?

I am not talking, I am writing.  And I've simply asked you to follow the rules.  Trolls hate that.  I regard your question somewhat the same way I regard this question--Have you stopped beating your wife yet?

On a fair note we need a public chat so we can filter.

If we don't filter we may falter?

We filter. I've probably rejected 20 spammers over the past week. I'll admit I let the troll in though.

It was like the old Atheist site that died when Obscured by Clouds profile died.

How do you explain this?
1. Our opinion concerning the existence of deities is in the minority.

2. A lot of people who fit the definition of an atheist don't identify as one. Reasons include avoiding the baggage associated the the term, having a different understanding of the term's meaning, or subscribing to a belief such as humanism which they prefer to use as a label.

Take Neil deGrasse Tyson for example. He has talked about his opinions concerning religion, and in my opinion he sounds like an atheist. He prefers to call himself agnostic. Tyson is far from alone in that regard, so point #2 is probably the best answer to your question.
"Existence is beautiful, if you let it be. Life is not a question. There does not need to be an answer."
