when in reality I normally just say things because I think they are true.
Tres, if that's the case, what are we to make of all the times when, if pressed on an argument, you immediately withdraw to "it's just a hypothetical; I don't necessarily believe this?"
Tom, because I like to defend things I don't necessarily ultimately believe in, but think have valid and/or true points to be made that should be respected. There is a difference between saying a particular viewpoint is right and saying certain things about a particular viewpoint are right.

For instance, I don't believe in Islam. That does not mean I can't give an argument supporting some aspect of Islam that I do think is right. And it doesn't mean I can't support Muslims when they do something I think is right or within their rights. If I do so, you should not assume I also believe in Islam as a whole.

If I withdraw and state "I don't necessarily believe this", what it means is that I have concluded you are assigning a certain belief as the motive behind my argument, and I wish to correct that - to suggest that the motive is not to defend at all costs my personal belief. ("Oh, you're just saying that because you are Muslim!") The real motive behind my arguments is normally the fact that I think the argument follows and is valid, and thus should be true if you accept the premises. In short, because I think the arguments are true (even if I also think the viewpoints they might be used to support are not so true!)

No. Abrynne and sarcasticmuppet are two different people, and sarcasticmuppet is not Narnia's sister. The post was referring to the fact that "ROLF ROLF" made Narnia think of muppets, which reminded someone of SM.

You're right. It stands for, "Your monkey might vomit."

That's so sad. What's wrong with it?

This is not directly relevant, but as long as we are explaining abbreviated terms commonly used on the forum, what is "BTW"?

Opening myself up for mocking and insulting -- what does IIRC mean? I've been wondering for ages.
