You're welcome. I had the same problem and those persons are no longer here. Didn't even have to change my user name. So take this as a positive sign things are good, and getting even better.

I hope you don't banish me. I'm all for free speech and thought and my first thought is when you start out with "massively overpopulated world" is who get's to decide that? When we make statements like that we never think about who it is that gets to be eliminated or reduced in population to meet some arbitrary number that some mastermind thinks is the appropriate amount for this world. Just believe it's always somebody else they are thinking of.
Right. Sort of. Actually works out to about 871 sq ft per person, more than the average living space per person if you count worldwide.
This however is just surface area. Building vertically like in a lot of major cities would allow plenty of space for everyone on Earth to live in Texas, and probably with land left over to grow all the food they need. Might have to use a bit more but you get the idea. The planet is nowhere near overcrowded.
Truth be told however the real problem is not how much land we have, or resources, or even how the wealth and resources are divided. The real problem is the borderline evil ideology that views a human being as little more than a mouth and a anus. As if all we do is consume and pollute. This same pernicious attitude permeates the culture to the point hardly anyone can think of these things from anything even approaching a realistic point of view.
When in reality a human being is an incredibly ingenious and marvelously productive creature. So much so that over time he has figured out how to grow so much more food that where in the past virtually everyone had to spend all their time growing or hunting food and even then barely have enough to eat, today hardly anyone knows how to grow or hunt anything and yet our #1 health problem is obesity.
But most of us are fed a daily diet of lies, which we repeat mindlessly as if true. Then, making a bad situation worse, double down on the lies when confronted with uncomfortable facts such as these. Still and all, the few of us with functioning minds capable of critical thinking are so productive that we more than make up for it. Hence, we are better off now than anyone ever before in history. Even though many of us will never pull their head out long enough to look around and notice.
@jusam old friend, do we know you by another handle, or are you in virtual-witness-protection from a stalker? Whatever happened, glad you're safe and with us.
For whoever is directing the population relocation, we've got plenty of traffic in Austin already, please don't send everyone to TX. Cheers,
Yes, I had posted under a different user name since the beginnings of AudiogoN with Arnie. I ended up having a very bad situation with a person that said he wanted to buy a listing of mine and I ended the listing while waiting to the money....his payment never came so I re-listed and sold the item to another Buyer..and this was 6 months later....he left me bad feedback saying that I would not honor the sale when he was ready to send payment. The same thing happened on ebay, I had over 500 all positive feedbacks, then a troll attached himself to my user name. I no longer buy or sell on ebay.
Take care, Jim
