Don't think of us 'nonbelievers' as 'party crashers'. Think of us as volunteer sparring partners in order to improve your bullshitting skills.

You might be better to post it on both sites. That way you can judge from the replies.

TFES.org is much more tightly moderated and it takes little to get a ban and I believe that a number of members of this site have been permanently banned from TFES.org.

The "Wiki" on TFES.org is better maintained and contains a lot more recent material - I'll let you judge it's quality and reliability but I have my own personal opinions.

Originally there was just one society, this one, but probably due to some personality clash, there were differing opinions as to how the site should be run.

You will find that this site allows a lot more free debate but the other site will not allow much in the way of insults or off-topic posting.

The rest is up to you.

This site is more open to ideas than TFES,  and that makes it more interesting and fun.

There has been talk of unification of the two sites from time to time,  but the personalities involved seem to make that unlikely. 

Also,  this site seems to have a higher number of people arguing against FE,  so some flatearthers who don't like their arguments to be shot down regard it as "controlled opposition" 
The opposition part is partly correct,  but it could better be described as "uncontrolled opposition"

Hello,
I think every one else who responded is a glober, just so you know.

So why are the flat earthers not responding?

The other site threw you out and banned you permanently didn't they? Maybe you could tell us what you did to deserve that ;D.
