I'm not sure how visually verifying that a passenger's seatbelt is buckled requires the flight attendant, regardless of gender, to either 1) sit adjacent to that passenger or 2) speak directly to that passenger. Perhaps, in the case of #2, if the seatbelt were covered over by clothing, but the letter did explicitly state that the monks are well versed in flight protocol, so this would be an unlikely occurrence. Absolutely! But if you want respect from others, it helps to show them respect, too, even if you disagree with their beliefs, no? I can't speak for anyone else, but when I mentioned that you had been "on an anti-Christian crusade lately" a year or so back, acknowledged one of your threads against a particular Islamic issue, and asked why you don't criticize other religions more frequently*, your own response was to link to threads about 8-string guitars, Gahndi and other non-religious topics. I have noticed that you've posted more threads criticizing religions other than Christianity in the past few months. I'm not sure if this is standard operating procedure for you and my observations were based on a non-characteristic period or if you've started posting more threads against other religions as a result of several people mentioning your focus on Christianity lately, but it doesn't matter as neither invalidates my observations at the time I made them. * Note that my comments were related to advising you to present yourself and your argument as objectively as possible, rather than as biased against a particular idea, as this greatly influences how you and your argument are perceived, not as me caring about the specific number of threads you've created on any given topic. You're welcome to post about whatever you want.
