There are many worthy and wonderful posters here. Popularity is not the same as quality and it depends on whether you mean popular collectively of individually.
Let me nominate the ‘voice crying out in the wilderness.’ The quiet thoughtful voice of deep truth, integrity, the man who cuts through the jarring sects and shows the way to freedom from the tyranny of religion,. The overlooked, undervalued and awesome - James Thomas.
on a different note: I appreciate dfed here, I really do. At first I thought he was one of those hit-and-run JW posters who make 1 or 2 inflamatory posts to get everyone riled up and then disappearing. I think my first PM to dfed was something like: F*** off! Now I actually look forward to seeing his posts here------even if he never answers my questions!
