OK... aggressive much? Wouldn't think that a SITP post could sound like it is aiming for the Flame Wars Section.
Regardless of the organizer(s), if the meet is not on a Wednesday, chances are I will be able to attend, and would very much like to do so. Could whoever organizes whatever please post the details on the forum as well, and not just on facefuck? They blocked most social networking sites at my office and logging on on the phone is such a drag...

As far as I know tele has never pitched, though people seem to fear this, for some strange reason.

I'd actually like a chat with Tele, he does seem to have a deep field of knowledge, albeit that he applies it for apologetics on this forum, he does post cool sciency stuff all the time.

Got interesting there for a moment...

I'd love to come, but my s/o is antisocial and I'd feel ackward leaving him at home and go off to meet a group of majority males.... I'm working on him though, perhaps one of these days I can drag him out for a meet and greet with all of you, I desperately want to....  Undecided

not aggro as much as irritated that this noob, whom i dont know from a bar of soap, wants to tell me how to organise a SITP.  jirre, im sure i can pick out a pub, a time, a date, and have the noggin to ask the relevant people on the forum to place it on the events.  and on facefuck.  he makes it sound like you allmost have to get permission first.
if i want to organise a SITP, i will ask people who i have chatted to before, not some dude who i have yet to have any form of interaction with.  and whose have barely been active on the forum.
i might sound like a class A bitch here, but guess what, i am one.  it seems that micheal whats'hisface wants the SITP to be arranged only by particular people.
i will leave it here.

So... sorry if I offended you. It wasn't my intention to suggest you need to ask permission or that you're too stupid to organize it properly. I quite honestly (no, really) just wanted to make sure we ended up with one, unified, JHB skeptical community. I've been trying to foster greater cooperation between SA & African skeptics for a couple of years (e.g.). Strength in numbers, that kind of thing.

This is kinda the point of the SitP thing. Mike's been one of the leaders* of the SA sceptical movement for ages... a movement which, rightly or wrongly, exists mostly outside of this forum.

SitP is a great opportunity for those of us from different facets of that community (this forum, the FB group, various blogs and other circles) to meet and mix it up, sceptic-style.

This almost-flame-war makes me a sad panda. We're supposed to be on the same side here... the more we collaborate and share our established resources, the better it'll be for all of us. This just highlights the fact that we (those of us who think it's important) have plenty more work to do in fostering that cohesion.

* Insofar as there is such a thing.

I try to keep the site updated with SITP events (check http://skeptic.za.org/ or http://forum.skeptic.za.org/events-highlights-news/).

Usually I get the facebook event invites in my mail box and update the site, so if you want to make sure I know of the event and your not using the FB group, just email me directly Wink

PS If anyone wants to post events in events-highlights-news (and also on the main page) let me know and I'll give you access.
PMS I probably should make member status depend on more than just post count... maybe add the join date?

then we will have people like benguela, who rarely chirps in about anything, looking like he's a regular contributer.  at the risk of sounding like a douche, coz i got hero status, i think that if the contribute regularly, and interact, and post topics, then you should be upped in status.  i honestly think my hero status is unfounded, coz i often comment random shit, and it might not be relevant or even interresting.  i made up the numbers with rambling and ranting.

on the other hand, i would be severly mif if some guy who joined two years ago, and pops in once in a while and adds a comment here and there, gets hero status, just coz he's here longer than anybody else.

This is getting more and more like a real family - heheh - feeel the leeerve.

News about last night's audition gig: I got the gig, and will be starting there in the second week of September. The good news is that next week (1 September) I will be available. Thank you gcg for wanting to include me - I feel honoured. My muso-work-at-night schedule effectively removes almost any hope of me having a social life/keeping a girlfriend etc. The price we pay for being artists *SIGH*. Hey, if I cut my ear off maybe I could be famous LOL.

Wouldn't that constitute a mere cover version of artistic volatility? To be memorable, you'll need to cut something original off. And then write a song about it. Wink

LOL. Mmmmm. Cut something original off ... I could always become a Rabbi and instead of writing a song about what I was cutting off I could invent a religion.  Evil Oh sorry, that one is already taken.  Undecided

Hey gcg, got the invite on Facebook and replied. Thanks. First of September it is and I will be there. Thank you soooo much for accommodating the MusoMan. Next week Wednesday Spring will start in style and mild inebriation but with the COOLEST family eva. Yaaaaay!
