If he uses the same name at PFM then it wasn't a very elaborate cover...

Yes but I don’t understand what motivates people in this way.

Richard on one hand said above that it is ‘energetic motivation’ on his part, which is admirable to be so full of vigour, especially considering, and I hope he doesn’t mind me saying this, his age and maturity.

But what possesses the minds of these trolls as they are called, to invest so much time and effort into such a futile pursuit?

My meaning of energetic is different, it is not being energetic in the sense you mean.

Oh, interesting, why didn’t you say as much as I’m completely in ignorance of such things, I only do C of E and church on Sunday morning every other week.

We all need something to keep ourselves going in the face of adversity and ridicule.

It is not religion. It is an explanation of what motivates us and why. True Taoism is not a religion, but it has been combined with Chinese folk religion and Confucianism in some aspect in China and amoungst normal ethnic Chinese people, but in reality it is just a philosophy and way of explaining *things*. Lao Tzu one of its originators got completely fed up with explaining he could only point you, you had to find your way, so he just went off to where no one could find him to pursue *his way*. All Tao means is the way or the path, it is about creating balance and holding up a mirror to yourself and others. Around us is energy, we make ourselves aware of it by stilling all the chatter and noise in yourself, and then you react to the energy. No one should put up with abuse and bullying, turning the other cheek is not part of the way, which is why so many Chinese martial arts consider themselves to be Taoist Arts especially Tai-Chi Chuan/ Taijiquan.

It’s beyond my understanding, it sounds like mysticism which I don’t trust and much of it is just made up, whereas God is real and our creator.

I believe turning the other cheek is the right thing to do for both parties and in the end it creates a more stable psychological state for the wronged party.
