Let's discuss what a truly offensive post is-- and isn't here. There's a difference between attacking an argument, and attacking the poster who presented the argument.

I'm disappointed that no one responded to this Thread. I think it would be an excellent subject to discuss.

DRM says:
Yes, a big difference. And really, everyone knows the following is true: attacking the poster is SO much easier. What is significantly more difficult is coming up with valid points to refute or enlighten or add to the discussion.

As NG always had valid points in her posts, that makes her banning completely inexplicable.

What are the chances of me getting sick by eating raw cookie dough? I'm tempted sometimes to purchase when I pass by but it clearly states on the wrapper not to eat it raw.

From previous threads, I've learned that the odds of anything are 50-50. It either happens or it doesn't.

It's true. According to "Kyle Rayner," a past history is no predictor of future events. Just because there were several people who got sick who ate potato salad which had been sitting for hours in the sun at the Elks picnic is no guarantee that anyone else will get sick. Either it will happen or it will not! Praise the Void for the likes of "Kyle Rayner" who has led us out from the dark and confusing world of scientific methodology and into the light of the quasi-logical Raynerworld!!

So what you are saying is, I have a 0% or a 100% chance?

You'll know which, after you eat it.

Well, someone died the other day. Even though I don't know why they died, I'm absolutely certain that it was raw cookie dough. Since someone has died, other people are certain to die. Many people dying can't be chance or individual actions. It has to be conspiracy. I think that there is a group of people out there sending recommendations to picked individuals to eat raw cookie dough.

And I know who that group must be. It consists of everyone who doesn't think like I do. The internet is complicit in this campaign of murder as well. So is the phone system. So are stores that sell cookie dough. The cookie dough poisoning campaign is nothing less than a plot to steal our freedoms and censor us politically by murdering the best of us. We must draw the line here. This is the moment in history. This is 1933 all over again and this our chance to stop it.

So if you even think about eating raw cookie dough, you will die. I'm absolutely certain of this. Logic and reason allow for no other option.

I simply get very tired of getting attacked when I offer up some information, not even an argument. Evangelical Christians tell me I am going to hell in a handbasket and right-wingers call me a socialist and an enabler of the poor. Neither of these kinds of attacks make any sense to me.

Kathleen M. Pelley,

That's because saying that you're a bad person is the only thing they can come back with if your information is true.

Mark,

I agree with you totally. I now have no desire to eat raw cookie dough. Your post should be the warning sticker they slap on the package.

Kathleen,

You are always going to have radicals from both sides and unfortunately these are the ones who make headlines and are also the ones to ignore.

Steve Ptasznik,

The loss of the posters most able to see both sides is terrible for the forum.

That is like the 8-year-old bully on the playground. It's almost like I scare them.

Before I developed a gluten allergy, the only reason that I made cookies for my family was to eat the raw cookie dough. I never ate the cookies.

Some like Ephrem & Nico can be downright vicious. And their hastling is pointless.

I have discovered that the right-wingers just plain lie on the political forums. When you confront them with facts, they suddenly quit posting--they don't even argue with you. Their arguements are the same talking points that you hear Congress people pushing on TV--I am a spiritual AND political junkie :-)

Kathleen M. Pelley,

You DO scare them. If you seriously believe that you could be sentenced to never-ending torture in the afterlife for thoughtcrime, then anyone who provides credible grounds for doubt is a danger to your eternal soul.

One poster-- DRM I think-- seemed to think that "attacking others' cherished beliefs" was legitimate cause for NG's banning.

Kathleen,

Did you ever get ill from eating the raw cookie dough?

Nope, but I am pretty careful where I buy my eggs. I do not buy supermarket eggs--I either buy organic or from a friends who raises them in her back yard. The eggs are the issue because they can harbor salmonella. Nothing else is going to hurt you--sugar, flour, leavening ingredients, butter, vanilla, etc.

Make your own cookie dough with lots of butter, etc. It is really really good :-)
