There is a seriously-depraved, and rather cruel, atheist who lurks over on Dalnet. As I understand it, his original nick was LostAtheist. He failed to register this name, somebody else did, and he now logs onto IRC with a new nick and IP address each session. This has made it impossible to block or evade his presence.
After talking about his behavior I had the unfortunate “honor” of witnessing it firsthand on several occasions.
He stalks, and endlessly harasses, a registered sex offender in one chat – to a degree that is almost pathological. The offender recently changed what nick he signs online with, and this atheist dude has been obsessively after him to update his new online alias with the registy in his area. Said athiest has sent repeated emails to the registry to “help them out”.
My first question is this: Since a person on IRC can change nicks at will, is this dude going to endlesly obsess over keeping this registry updated?!
When somebody asked him why he was so utterly obsessed, he replied with a rather unconvincing excuse of that this “sick deviant” is making it “unsafe for kids online”.
Okay. Now. As several others pointed out: Kids basically don’t use IRC… if they’re even aware of it.
And then to top it off, after a guy in a Christian channel gave a rather sincere (and I thought honest) account of his battles with severe depression, this what he said:
“No wonder you’re such a douche: You’re a fucking weak, pathetic, loser.”
After being kicked from the room he (according to the depression guy) private messaged him and continued hatefully ranting against him, saying suicide was “better than your sorry ass hanging onto life with antidepressants and hoping your non-existant fucking god will save you.”
The next day when somebody asked him why he “hated religious people so much” he (with all seeming sincerity) replied: “I don’t hate them. I pity them.”
This atheist is a military-grade failure of a human being in every regard.
