OK people. I get how me being less than truthful made you upset...but the respect level is really not where it should be.

Can't we all try to be a bit more nice and respectful toward each other?

Essentially respect is earned, not demanded. You decided to start here with a fake persona, and have some "fun" at our expense, even though some of us were willing to give you the benefit of the doubt.

What exactly did you expect would happen? Wait, don't answer that, you don't answer most queries and replies anyway...
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

No, it certainly wasn't when you came in here not only lying repeatedly but preaching and trolling on an atheist forum with a "no preaching or trolling" rule.

As a show of good faith, you should start.  Go ahead, and let us know when you think you're actually doing that as I suspect we'll have to give you some guidance on it.

I'm not sure what you mean by asking us to "be a bit more nice and respectful toward each other." What you are seeing is a group of people who have been together on this forum long enough to have built a community and understand each other. There is plenty of respect here, but we are not formal with each other. Respect does not require formality.

You came here seeking entry into this community. Not to become a part of it, but actively seeking to change it. If anyone is not showing respect, it is you.

Oh yeah, I'm just soooooooooooooooooooo, upset.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

You start and things could well change.

Shenanigans in the Brexit negotiations--it looks like the Conservative's government partners DUP ( ::)) have decided they'd rather have a hard border with Eire than agree to have any difference in regulations from the rest of the UK.

The report that UK negotiators told the DUP that the Irish government had somehow managed to prevent the negotiators from sharing UK/Europe agreement documents is interesting. What sort of leverage did Ireland supposedly use on the UK to achieve this?

It won't last forever, but it looks to me as if having DUP in the UK government is dealing serious harm to the idea of a united Ireland.
