    By members, no.
    I frequently feel insulted, or, more precisely, my intelligence insulted. But that is my problem and probably not intended.

    No, I don’t think so. I’ve occasionally been shocked by the anger and intolerance of a few, but despite the noise they make they really are just a few, and easily ignored.

    That said, the tone of debate online can get toxic quite quickly; not sure why that is.

    “Harassed” no, but someone once did say they wanted “very much to punch me in the balls” - which is not a great comment.

    At the end of the day though, they’re anger is their problem; not mine.

    In the past I did feel harrased in RF, but now I can take whatever comes my way but, I will call out those who take it to far, and now many Baha'is are in my view being harrased in RF

    There are definitly some that go out of their way to target faith based belief.

    There are definitly some that go out of their way to target athiest thought.

    Maybe we need boxing gloves. :D;)

    No. Probably because they'd know I would harass back, and harass better than the ever could. :D

    I've had a small handful of intense confrontations. Either i put them on ignore or staff ask/tell me to when it gets overly heated .

    Harassed? No. But you sometimes have to face down idiots.

    Harassed isn't the right word. More like made the butt of jokes due to being on the slight outside of a group.

    No. I simply ignore posts if I want to. I have put people on Ignore in the past but curiosity always gets the better of me. Plus, there's the entertainment value.

    I wonder if others ever feel harrassed by me?

    No. I have not given anyone here at RF the power to make me feel harassed.

    No one can make me feel any way. Only I can do that.
