Me? Well, if you garnish my steak with parsley, I will probably wind up eating some of it by accident.

A bit like religion then.

Is there a way to find out who has been rating my Karma? Normally, there's a link in my Profile page, but I don't see it.

Nah. It's secret here. For example some knucklehead smites my genius posts in Robber Meets Jesus. I'm just the messenger for Pete's sake.  ||guns||

If I need to PM a mod with a question, which one would one suggest? I see a bunch, but I'm not sure which ones are logged in and checking their inboxes.

It's early night in Australia, so if you are not in a big, big hurry try Teaspoon Shallow.

Non-believer. Scorpio. SoCal resident. Sam Harris fan.

"Astrology [Scorpio?] is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial objects as a means for divining information about human affairs and terrestrial events" - Wikipedia.

Sounds like a religious faith belief to me? ||think||

Nope. Just a statement of fact. In the same way that some people identify as Jewish because their mother was Jewish - but don't actually practice in any real way.

So it wouldn't confuse people to identify myself as a Libra? Why not just say my birthday falls in the Fall; in October? Otherwise would not some folks begin to mistakenly ascribe 'nonsense' Libra traits to myself?

Perhaps certain people would be confused. Just as an atheist labeling himself as "Jewish" (due to the principle of matrilineal descent) might initially confuse people. I just don't see this as a terribly pressing concern. Quite the opposite, maybe. If an astrological devotee has their faith in astrology thrown into question because they don't see me behaving as a Scorpio ought, then this is all to the good, in my estimation.
